    I worked at Macy’s as a seasonal worker when I was 19. I loved it! They offered me a permanent job after the seasonal timeframe was over. It was a really fast paced work environment that required exceptional people skills. This is the job for you if you love helping people and don’t mind a job that keeps you in your feet and really moving.
