    I worked at Macy's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Boss was friendly, pleasant to work at, pay was decent for hours worked, an overall pleasant experience, would work here again

    Cons

    Long hours, long way to travel, would be helpful if there were more stores in rural areas. Small nitpick, as I don't have a car.

    Advice to Management

    More stores in rural locations
