    I have been working at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    I work with some wonderful people. The lead person I work directly under is a hard worker as me, she is a very grateful person and will always say how much she appreciates me and I her.

    Cons

    There are never any incentives to motivate your people when they are overworked, some associates who don't work as hard get passes and are favored by some of the bosses, when you are always on time and work hard and need a favor, you are looked at like "how dare you ask" its like your afraid to ask, because then if you do.. you'll notice a change in your hours or they'll be less.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates and try to be more accommodating to the people you have who are very loyal. Don't disregard us like we are just robots and what we say don't matter. Give us a chance to voice our concerns and actually take them into consideration.
