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

    Pros

    Macys allows a flexible scheduling that way you can accommodate your family and work. They also offer a 20% employee discount.

    Cons

    Macys pays minimum wage.
    Under schedules so you're always overworked, because of this people call in, therefore you do not get off work at your scheduled time. They constantly asked you to work hours over your schedule and get very hasty and upset when you cannot accommodate that request. You do not get breaks, and if you ask a manager to cover you for your lunch, there's always a nasty attitude to follow.

    Advice to Management

    I know that your job is hard and you have corporate to answer to but put yourself in your front end team members shoes for one day and see how a small change could make a great difference.
