    I have been working at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    The people are fun to work with. For the most part, the other more experienced employees are willing to show you the ropes.

    Cons

    The flexible scheduling seems like it would be a good thing at first, but if you aren't on the website right as the calendar is released, all of the shifts will be grabbed before you can get to them. I am a current employee with 0 shifts scheduled in the next 4 weeks. It is by no means a stable job. If you need this to pay rent, it is not the position for you!!!! Also the training is terrible. I was thrown to the wolves on my first shift. Had to close my department by myself! Had no idea if I was even doing it right.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront with your employees about the scheduling issues, or fix the flexible scheduling all together. It is ridiculous that I can't find a shift to work in the next month!!! Additionally, it would be beneficial if your first full shift was actually with an experienced employee.

    Got to meet some great people.

    Was only making money half the time. The companies store goals were too high so commission departments had to back-stab each other to make their own sales goals.

    Train everyone so that the team is on the same page.
