    I have been working at Macy's as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very Flexible schedule. Uses some technology.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional environment. Managers have a tendency to talk down to employees. They say there is no difference between FTE and Seasonal employees but one wouldn't know that all based on the way they are treated.

    The pay sucks in retail too.

    Advice to Management

    Training and coaching. Live up to what you have said on paper in your mission and vision statements. It does not permeate through the firm nor the store.
