I work in a district where 5 stores receiving schedule were changed on the days of a truck. Normally the shift on the day of a truck would be 6a-3pm it's now going to be 12-9pm. Not a big deal since it's retail but they had us sit down with the... read more

what does RTM stand for? are they cutting the MTM's in certain stores?
What are your thoughts?
Anyone hear if management in stores will be severanced out this year? MTM's? Figured with the restructuring of ap/ops from last year and them taking over some of the mtm's role, this was the writing on the wall.
Left a few years ago and thought I made a mistake seeing the stock improvements in 2018. That was until the holiday results were released. Macy’s still needs to close doors. It doubled in size after the May merger. Closing 100 more doors in markets... read more
Im seeing lots of open DM positions on taleo. I know most jobs are on freeze until February...but could this be an inkling to the DM’s being phased out?
Spring Ownership 2019 just came out. Many small stores are eliminating the full time position in AST. The only full timer will be the ASTS with a part time and flex colleagues. Announcement on the consolidating districts and store closures will be... read more
Are the AST and AYS departments combining? Any details or information would be greatly appreciated.
But how will the Neighborhood Macy's affect Jewelry Complex job structure for the JSS, Clericals, Captains, Associates and Ringers?
While reading this article on the reinvention of Macy’s and its stores I gotta admit that it looks to me like the company did the right thing. Store closings and the uncertainty that came with them were hard on everybody and I’m sure that, at some... read more
What will happen to the Jewelry Complex Structure ( JSS, Clericals & Captains) if your store becomes a "Neighborhood" Store??
I work at the Macy's on 34th street and I'm not sure but are they getting rid of flex positions? They started giving me random shifts that don't fit on my schedule. Anyone familiar with the flagship or know if there are plans to layoff certain people... read more
The writing has been on the wall for several years now. There is no loyalty in brick and mortar retail. Find another job now. Why are people surprised? Or are still in denial? Move on with your life. I left or was laid off from Macy’s 2 years ago... read more
I have worked for the company for 20 years and this is the first time that we are cutting hours the week before Christmas. The store manager is super frustrated as our Magic (service) comments from the customers complain about the condition of our... read more
It’s so funny how management addresses the rumors re building changes but completely passes over lay-off rumors, which are the ones everyone is freaked out about. The truth is members of management have leaked the info and have confirmed that 40-50%... read more
Has anyone heard rumors of what is to come in January? Announcements? Closings? Restructuring? District consolidations?
Debt reduction is going in a good direction for Macy’s these days and the culmination of this practice came in an announcement from the company that stated that a large portion of earnings, that were made during the holiday season, is going to be... read more

Every year since Macy's has been open on Thanksgiving we've been paid time and 1/2 for working it. I just looked at my paycheck that I will get on 11/30 and I only got straight time. I hope this is an error and not Macy's being Macys.
Congrats to the stores that made 3rd quarter plan And hopefully most of us make 4th quarter But does anyone one know when 3rd quarter will be paid out ?
Anuncios a realizar mañana en las tiendas. Las posiciones de los especialistas se eliminan y todos esos fondos ahora financiarán un incentivo de ventas en toda la tienda. Cada trimestre, si su tienda supera el objetivo de ventas, se otorgará $$$ a... read more
You cannot compare retail to first responders, seriously ? How about Macy’s shows a little consideration for their employees and have them enjoy Thanksgiving with their families. And, no, the customers that came in on Thanksgiving we’re only... read more
The customers who were here for Black Friday will never be back to the store (until next Black Friday, of course,) I will bet anybody that right now. Not a single one of them. It's the same thing every year. Which poses the question, what's the... read more
I also feel Macy’s is no longer what the store was. Very sad. We are now on the same tier as discount stores, no prestige in any way shape or form. Opening Thanksgiving is absolutely a nightmare, Macys should think of their employees first, but we... read more
I hope this is really anonymous or I'll probably get fired for what I'm about to spew. I just sacrificed another Thanksgiving in order to sell c-ap to foreigners that they will get for free with the rebate. Even though it's free they still want to... read more
The Boulder store was not on the list of 100 stores that are set to close, but the company officially confirmed that it’s considering that location for redevelopment. This confirms my suspicions that the number of stores that are going to be affected... read more
Anyone seen a list of stores that will be closing in 2019?
Kudos to all the stores who have set up for Christmas (under 25 million) We don’t get the recognition that 25 and up get. NewYork forgets we exist when they give out those awards. We never get our deliveries in time to even qualify. We get bare... read more
Take a look at the Wall Street Journal article published today titled " Macy's Radical Plan to Save Itself: Shrink". In the article, the Journal interviews CEO Jeff Gennette who describes in detail how of the 653 Macy's stores, 350 will become growth... read more
There you go! Smaller stores equal fewer employees. I get that this is basically on an experiment level and it’s only 4 stores that we are talking about, but if this turns out to be a concept that proves to be effective for the company leadership... read more
I was part of the February 2018 layoff when my full time position was eliminated and shifted down to part time which I didn't take and left with the package. Now low and behold they are making the position full time again and having trouble filling... read more
mplementing "changes" since 2008. They involve firing experienced folks, many who have been through multiple mergers, down times, good times etc. and knew how to manage change and hiring the inexperienced and sycophants and installing a reign of... read more
This is an excellent article for those want to get familiar with the plans of our CEO to give the company a new business direction and restructure it in order to meet the new and more challenging market demands. If you read between the lines, you... read more
It's amazing how many retail companies struggle
Do you predict that there will be Macy's Layoffs in 2019?
