How can any colleagues from Macy’s or Bloomingdales be self motivated? When upper level executives realize that the most important part of the inventory are the associates the company might succeed. Frankly I am in disbelief how executives can... — read more
It's a damn shame that a company that I took so much pride in working for has become what it is today. I could rail on how poorly mismanaged stores are, but what's the point. The company will continue to fail and close stores and layoff hardworking... — read more

If you have money on your commuter card, you better go take it now. I was laid off in February and haven't been on the train in months. I went to use the card and it had zero balance. I was told the money was returned to Macy's. Macy's told me they... — read more
The only way Macys can survive is if you get rid of the greedy CEO and Board of Directors who are Pillaging the company for their own financial gain.
The air conditioning is horrible in stores! They tell customers they are turning it up to filter the air out to protect for covid but that’s b—s—. When was the last time any of the filters in the vents were even cleaned?! And they shut the ac off... — read more

Received my severance deposit this morning. Even after taxes, the net amount is about $700 less than it should be. Anyone have any insight into this? Unless they broke it up into multiple payments, I don’t understand it.
Since they called back our stores support and let the rest go (some very good, experienced employees) we can't get the job done. The store is a mess, fitting room racks every where, non stop penny, missed markdowns, stockrooms filled, new goods still... — read more
