    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.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discount
    Enjoyable Colleagues
    Special Events

    Severely Overworked
    No work life balance for full timers
    Many unreliable colleagues for every good one

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people or Macy's will fail as a company. One person doing the job of 3-4 people only makes for high turnover and associates of less quality.

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

    Pros

    Customers & Co-workers made it worthwhile.

    Cons

    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.
