    Pros

    Easy to get hired, they don't emphasize quality only availability,

    Pros

    Flexibility
    People whom you work with

    A little tiring
    I see pregnant women who have to stand, the employers should give them high chairs to sit on.

    Advice to Management

    Involve yourself more on the floor, get in touch with the people.

    I worked at Macy's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There really are not pros. The store is a union store however everyone makes min wage. Union does nothing for you.

    Cons

    They do not ask you to stay to work they tell you to stay.
    If you are commission be careful because they will cheat you.
    Managers do very little except sit in the office. When you call them they act like it is a disturbance to their office time. Any information is always incorrect. You have to call the home office to get the right information. The store is dirty and they are so short staffed that you cannot take care of the customer. They will then reprimand you because customers are upset however the root is not having enough staff.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be out on the selling floor. Managers need to know the department that they manage. Supervisors are afraid of upper management and so they never follow through with anything because they do not want to put their job in jeopardy.
