    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Macy's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great if you absolutely NEED a job. If you have a pulse they will hire you.

    Cons

    This is a boring job. You will spend most of your time pretending to look busy as you are being monitored constantly by managers via video cameras. They also really want you to sell their credit card even if that means misleading customers.
