As a manager we are being told that all PTO requests will be coming to us from our colleagues and we’re being told by the VPSM to deny them. I was told as an executive who was furloughed for 4 weeks that we cannot take a full week of PTO at once and... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Macy's Inc.
Brooklyn, Chicago, San Francisco, LA and a couple of other stores that were looted especially the ones they took bonds on, they will sell the real estate instead
My store is opening back up on June 15th. While I don’t know if I’ll be recalled (yet), is it possible to be exempted if you are or live with someone immunocompromised (in this case my mom) and remain furloughed?
https://companyblog.jcpnewsroom.com/storeclosings/ Bankrupted J.C. Penney announced Thursday the list of the 154 stores it plans to close this summer, with store closing sales kicking off June 12. It said it will announce additional closures... — read more
So happy it will reopen, even though I know I won’t get called back (part time Flex). My coworkers are anxious to return to some kind of normal!
Wondering if anyone who has been on the calls has any idea whether colleagues being brought back from furlough are relatively safe from looming layoffs? Specifically SM/sales supervisor positions? Also if a sales supervisor came back as a regular... — read more
Will Current PTO re:full time/years of service continue rest of fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2021..,,,etc
To be transparent here, I am currently furloughed myself and have multiple contacts at a high level who are currently active. Based on what I hear an accurate guess is probably that 25% of currently furloughed corporate employees will return when... — read more
Dear Herald Square store colleagues, You may have seen on the news that Herald Square was breached during the civil unrest in our city last night. The damage to our store was minimal and we were able to quickly apprehend the suspects and secure... — read more
Macy’s leadership actually telling stores to barricade store fire exits At closing due to break ins/looters is beyond reprehensible. They better pray nothing happens with a fire fighter getting trapped in one of their buildings.
Reliable sources are saying a large round of layoffs are coming before August the fall budget begins. Unconfirmed but signs pointing to: RDOS, VISUAL, OPS/AP, HR only in region structure No Divisions Merch and Visual merge SM cuts... — read more
Has anyone heard from their store manager yet for the second round of recalls?
What rule did it violate? I genuinely wanted to know what brand were the desk chairs at mtech sf because I want it for my home office and can’t try out a bunch of new chairs.
That seems to be the max at my store right now. What's the situation like elsewhere?
Macys Herald Square 34th street looted. Not by Black Lives Matters protestors but by the 3rd party looters. Very sad
This is a very different mentality from other large stores facing industry headwinds. Department stores like JCPenney and Macy’s have long had difficulty growing their e-commerce businesses in a way that offset declining foot traffic. While many... — read more
If anyone remembers, what brand were the desk chairs at mtech sf?They were comfortable. Looked like Herman Miller chairs, but I think they were around $500 each, not over $1000.
I'll say it, even if it might catch me some flack. Macy's might not be the perfect place to work but it's a job and it certainly beast sitting at home day in, day out wondering what's going to happen if I lose my job in this economy. So yes, I'm... — read more
Hello I’m a supervisor and have not been called back in yet. My store are reopens tomorrow with reduced hours. I’m the only “supervisor” in a store with two sales managers and two floor leads. A person on my team called to ask if I was coming back... — read more
Now we are closed for the protests...on the third day tomorrow.........
Macy’s Inc. is putting some of its top stores as well as its inventory in hock to borrow as much as $4.1 billion, the latest retailer to seek financing after the Covid-19 pandemic walloped sales. The company is looking to sell $1.1 billion of junk... — read more
Has anyone gone into the 2nd round/phase 2, whatever you want to call it of recalling more employees from furlough? Who are they calling back, how many?
Anyone heard what other Division, region, or central people that are coming back too?
How long after your state's reopening did it take for you to be recalled and your store to be opened?
I'm trying to figure out how this $1.1 billion deal will affect us. It could be the lifeline we need but it could also be the final nail in the coffin, considering stores, distribution centers, and inventory were given as collateral. With this... — read more
If lord and Taylor is going down and jcpenny is restructuring , M is the last man standing but that’s only good if other stores in the mall survive. Let alone the food courts.
How many folks took a relo to Johns Creek or NYC and are now regretting that decision? Or are you still looking for a local job before you have to move?
If you are SO UNHAPPY at Macy’s and can’t wait for them to fail, why do you work there?? No one is forcing you to be employed there. In fact, the managers, colleagues and customers who do like working and shopping at Macy’s would prefer if you... — read more
Does anyone know when phase 2 might be happening ?
What do the shift times/ schedules look like in the store that have reopened with limited hours? For FT and for people leaders?
We have been on several calls where it was made clear that we will be smaller at all levels when we re-open for the fall season. Don't expect to see a rush to bring back non-essential people regardless of their position, as a matter of fact, mid... — read more
Not my post, just sharing... On deletions, someone posted this a couple of days ago, source below: I've been on this site since 2015 (first with Verizon and now with GM) so hear me out: mods/admins exist, they are silent tho ... — read more
