    Pros

    Worked in the back of the store. Not much customer interaction.

    Cons

    No hours, i was off the schedule for three weeks! Don't know why i stayed. Managers are incompetent, they themselves don't understand the process, and scramble to actually work only when the big wigs visit the store.

    Advice to Management

    Macy's will go bankrupt, it is inevitable.
