    I worked at Macy's as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Recruitment office is amazing! Pay is about average for San Francisco at $30/hr + $1500 bonus for housing. Overtime eligible. Great new office. The people were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Went to company outings frequently.

    Cons

    Onboarding can be confusing and shortage of MacBook Pros contributes to poor planning for onboarding. Also feedback as far as team placement wasn't really considered.

    Advice to Management

    Have more 1 on 1 with TECH EDPS and interns!
