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

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, friendly, helpful, and cooperative coworkers, on top of a welcoming professional environment are all factors that make Macy's a good place to work.

    Cons

    If you dislike being mobile and proactive, the holidays aren't going to be much fun. If you like to stay on your toes and being around lots of activity, it'll be entertaining.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the schedules were more consistent, I found myself working 30-40+ hours some weeks. I acceded to the extra hours and retail tends to be chaotic so I can't really complain too much.
