    Pros

    Job overall is pretty decent. Manager was pretty great imo. Flexible hours if needed. Great coworkers to be had at macy,s.

    Cons

    Hot in summer cold in winter. HR is pretty horrible in my opinion. Can do a simple transfer in a timely manner without lying about sending it in the first place.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility to move around departments (except commissioned departments).

    Cons

    Inflexible work schedule after giving up your own time to help management out. Be careful; nobody has your back. Terminations are handed out like candy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your associates like third-world refugees. They need to eat, sleep, and take care of their families with low-wages. Show some respect!
