    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    Great People, Management that cares (mostly).

    Cons

    You have to let the public walk all over you and say whatever they want and you have to sit there and take it.

    Saw a lot of associates get carted out on stretchers by paramedics over heart/stress issues. It became a "who is it this time?"

    Advice to Management

    Learn how manage a consumer/retail customer who is belligerent without sacrificing the well-being and mental health of your employees.

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

    Pros

    I had some of the best coworkers who I developed good relationships with. We learned to appreciate each others strengths and communicate well. The managers were some of the kindest people I've ever met. It is a true scratch kitchen- you're not just reheating precooked food.

    Cons

    By the time I went there, the business wasn't doing well. This was because of unreliable holiday help in the past and maybe just competition from other restaurants in the Schaumburg area. It ended up closing down permanently while I worked there.

    Advice to Management

    If I could say one thing to the managers, it would be thank you for an incredible experience. It was a pleasure working for Macy's for the time that I did. My only advice is to set higher expectations for the shorter term employees.
