    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Associate discount
    - There are almost always hours available
    - Ability to extend your shifts

    Cons

    - Managers overworking and begging associates to extend their shifts, stay longer, come in on their days off, when they've been there 6 days a week (working 7 days in a row is illegal but they will let you do it anyway)
    - Not enough help!! For MONTHS!
    - Too much work expected of one person
    - If one person calls out, the department is screwed because there's so few associates.

    Advice to Management

    Hire dependable help ASAP. Don't let the functioning of your department rest on the shoulders of one associate who deserves to live a life outside of work.
