    be aware of those who are actually there for learning about the company and advancement, and would like an opportunity to grow, no disrespect to those who are trying to provide for their families but certain people went or are going to school for this.

    Pros

    Customers & Co-workers made it worthwhile.

    Management does the bare minimum and somehow would get all the credit.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't like retail or working you should've quit 15-20 yrs ago instead of complaining, being miserable at work, being lazy. Shouldn't be cheap hiring people as part time who will work full time.

    "COSMETICS DEPARTMENT NE PHILADELPHIA: worked as holiday help. Not as a 'ringer' but sales. Cruelest employees ever"

    I worked at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quick money for holidays and hours accommodate personal/school/work schedule. Good if you only need a short term income boost for holidays.

    Cons

    THE ABSOLUTE WORST, NASTY, VICIOUS EMPLOYEES I HAVE EVER HAD TO WORK WITH. I COULDN'T BELIEVE GROWN WOMEN BEHAVED IN THE WAY THEY DID. DOWNRIGHT THIEVES AND PURE VICIOUSNESS. THEY REALLY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES. To my knowledge this Behavior was not dealt with where they should have been written up and or terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to keep an eye on their permanent employees when it comes to their treatment of holiday help. They actually trick holiday employees and steal their sales by reverting to childlike behavior and can definitely be described as bullies. It borders on Criminal Behavior. They need to have some sort of repercussion for their behavior comma written up for disciplinary action and or terminated. Believe me I've told many people about that department at that location and at least 30 of my friends refuse to shop there because of it. That behavior should never be rewarded.
