Topics regarding layoffs at Macy's Inc.
As a compnay our "flex" associates are averaging 28-40 hrs a week and stores in my district still can't handle the work load. It has felt like Xmas all year due to this. I love it when district level managers visit , see the workload and make pretend... read more
Points are going away...what is taking its place?
So, if you are a MTM or an OAPM (literally the two worst jobs in stores at Macy's), then you are supposedly an executive employee and such exempt from over time for hours worked in excess of 40 each week. For MTM's, we usually work anywhere from 50... read more

I’ve been at Macys as a sales associate for 3 years. Lately our managers have been walking around with a big bag of goodies, inside Warm diet coke sodas, chocolate candy bars, rice cakes, chips. We get to pick 1 item when we get a loyalty. So if Im... read more

Does anyone else that this centralized HR system is a joke . I come out of a building where we don’t have a physical HR rep. We have to use the online portal or phone call to communicate with a HR rep. Feels like people on the other end of the... read more

This whole Jewelry strategy has turned into a joke. The department is completely over staffed for a commissioned department and you have non commission leads selling too. You cant make money. Having to ring 150,000 to get more than 2% is crazy... read more
While I understand a focus on key high volume stores. Doing nonething for the others makes no sense. You do not need to do full on remodels, reconfiguring the entire store. most stores really need new carpet , new fitting rooms, new lighting and... read more
It used to be a special event where once a year LeVian or Effy was brought in for a special trunk show. We could talk it up and build excitement because it was a rare event, available only once during the year. Fast forward to today, where now trunk... read more

Just over a year ago I decided to leave Macys as a high level Dir. In the e-commerce. But first the backstory. E-commerce had been growing since my arrival by 32% year over year for 5 years. During that tenure there was a big push to streamline the... read more
Investors from Goldman Sachs are visiting our store. Should we be worried that this is a fore runner of employment cutbacks and/or this store location closing?
When Macy's closes a store, who is entitled to severance? And how much is it - for those who receive it? Is it a week per year like in most other places or something different?
The retail apocalypse is having it's impact on Macy's too, we just aren't doing press releases like the other companies. Lucky for us that so few people want to work at Macy's anymore since we ask so much of our employees, we were told we could take... read more
While Macy's may do some good things, they really started out 2019, naming it the year to rid it's payroll of longtime employees and senior citizens . The technology group, technicians have been out sourced to a company that provides lack luster... read more
Just came from a meeting where concerns were raised about IT support, regarding outsource. These guys were let go due to pay scale and benefits. Never mind the job they did......they were targeted because of years of service and pay. So warning to... read more
The votes have been tallied! Jeff and Hal score very very low. Results matter?
What does the visual position look like for neighborhood stores? Is visual eliminated and just done by sales staff? how is the visual roll transitioning?

Several groups of Senior Directors and Store Managers (all of whom were VP's just a week ago) realize and discussed the changing culture at Macy's. We no longer have the once a year announcements in January, we no longer have the 11 months of job... read more
If any store manager that went to the Florida meeting could please give more concrete details of what was discussed....that would be really helpful.

I have heard that the VP is being dropped from the VPSM title. Any truth to this? I mean, it was over used anyways. Also heard pay structure changed for them? Would assume bonus structure?
Sad to hear RB was let go. Smart guy! The two stooges, Jeff and Hal are nuts. They are too busy running around with VR headsets on ! Like really Guys! Fake figures too. Sales are not being generated from these. Customers hate them!!
