    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Macy’s. In the cosmetics area there were different personalities and age groups. The environment was so fun.

    Cons

    The only con is that I am not still working. Although the hours are long, it was my home away from home.

    Advice to Management

    Bring sales volume up. Promote all cosmetic lines. You have great product, some go unnoticed.

    I worked at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    Great for part-time work while attending college classes and awesome discounts.

    Cons

    None for me I worked with a great manager who was very sweet and kind to her employees and our group was awesome because of her. Good people like her are hard to come by in life.

    I hope the person they hired after my manager resigned is just as kind and awesome as her.
