    No hours for full time seasonal

    Pros

    Can choose what days not to work and pick up shifts

    Cons

    There were no shifts. I was hired in October for Full time seasonal. I got approximately 20 hours for the entire month of October and approximately 24 hours for the month of November despite asking many times when new schedules would be released and if I could have more hours. I overheard my supervisor offering hours to someone that started in November because she "liked her." Always told to work harder by store manager, never given hours. No transparency. They just kept hiring more people but never gave anyone full hours until December but I was already gone at that point because I had bills to pay and could not live off of 20 hours a month. It was very disappointing for many of us.

    Pros

    Weekly pay fast and easy training if you’ve worked with any pos before , if you’re seasonal you pick up available shifts and there’s a ton during the winter holidays, great discount , the ppl who have worked at the KOP location for years are great if you have questions , you can pick up shifts in any department to get a feel of the whole store , easy to learn where everything is at if you choose a different department when you pick up shifts

    Cons

    Your first couple of days it’s a little scattered it’s a ton of employees you never really know who’s your boss besides the ppl in the executive office, not a good location if you don’t have a car , if you take public transportation leave 2-3 hours before your shift and try not to take shifts after 9pm the buses get slower and will be crowded regardless, in the winter the 124,125 flys by you at night

    Seasonal Fulfillment Associate and MORE...without the pay

    Mar 23, 2021 - Seasonal Fulfillment Associate in Brandon, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work with hands. Easy, repetitive job to fulfill (pick and pack) online orders. Mostly out of view from customers in a back area.

    Cons

    Unorganized. Received very little training on actual Fulfillment job and Macy's standards. Not able to social distance. Lots of people near each other in a tiny back room. When all online orders were complete or very little came it...expect to be sent to other areas of the store to do other jobs that you weren't hired for at the same low pay they give to fulfillment associates. You will be in sales, customer service, cashiering...etc.
