This job is crackers.
Cons: Breaks, lunches, HR, Team lead, and store management.
A typical day at work starts at 5:00 am, often earlier during holidays. During summer had to start at 1:00 am due to construction, - until "Completion" which is whenever the store is done usually 12:00pm - 1:45 pm, but at one point was 1:00am to 5:00pm, or a 16 hour shift, WITHOUT BREAKS, during holidays for Sale Prep until completion, we had a team of 5. Currently short-handed. The management, however, seems fit to not employ other people for the position, and will berate employee for not being "fast enough." A Signing team should be a team of 12 for a store of this size, but is really 2, excluding immediate manager, who prefers to do other things aside from sign the store. Current signing manager also seems fine with working off the clock. Also enjoys talking a lot. Carrot stick attitude. Current co-worker on workman's comp for injuries sustained on the job. Previous employees quit because of various complaints about worker retention, and management.
Would not recommend working for Macy's signing team unless desperate, hungry, crazy, or all three, and is okay with a totally crazy toxic team leader. My co-workers, when we did manage to retain them for a short while, were good hard working people, who would not put up with the insanity that current pervades the management atmosphere at Ridgedale Macy's.
Job has ok benefits, if you are part-time. You'll get nothing for being flex.
