    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of interaction with the public to build customer service skills and experience new cultures. Know that your making a difference in the world helping to keep thieves from stealing and causing prices of products to sky rocket.

    Cons

    Standing more or less in the same spot all day, not able to do much beyond observe and report, lots of policies are inconsistent with goals of the department. Also limited to no room to grow

    Advice to Management

    Recognize workers that have provided superb and reliable service to the company and offer them opportunities to advance instead of hiring outside. Also discontinue the seemingly popular practice of managers offering non-existent opportunities for growth.

    Pros

    I enjoyed helping the customers who were undecided about a particular item. It's very empowering to provide support to others.

    You have to work long hours during the holidays. You may be called in on your off day to cover a shift for your coworker.

    Create "set" schedules for employees. It allows more flex time for staff to plan events outside of work. It enables staff to enjoy their days off.
