    Give interns a chance to expand their project guidelines towards other facets of the job, I felt limited to what I could do to help benefit the company.

  4. "Good for internship experience"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Intern - Intern - Hourly 

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Felt like HR team tried their best to make interns feel comfortable.

    Cons

    The HR team is the college relations team, so full time workers there have difficult time dealing with HR issues. ALSO, lots of disorganization with firing and new hirings and moving people around departments.
