Anyone else have their DVP jamming the Big Give Back down their throats today? I transferred into a new division a few months ago and our Store Manager who's pretty cool just told us that we needed to have all of the colleagues complete the Big Give... — read more
Since online shopping has become the new norm, how many think Macy's has what it takes to remain in the forefront as more stores close over the next few years? I'm well aware this is not just our issue. It would be interesting to see how our... — read more
So, when customers are already asking if we’re closing because of the bare walls and empty dance floor because of the lack of merchandise and it’s only August! I’m at a “neighborhood” location so down deep I think I’m pretty sure I know the fate of... — read more

So what is the deal with stores being told they need to dedicate several thousand square feet to toys?
the true question is why did macys eliminate Marshall Fields & Company
What will happen to it?
I agree with someone who said the company is past the point of no return. However, does it really need a return or does it need to adapt to change? I think it needs to adapt to change. It is not worrying that there is no going back to the old, but... — read more
What if Macys shut all its stores and sold off the real estate and bought warehouses and became only a online store.. which position would be gone?
I am referring to the thread about OVM position and I absolutely agree with the person who thinks it is questionable whether this position will be around in 2022. My opinion is that it most likely will not, but I am interested in what other positions... — read more
I’ll give my store managers a nomination for a Oscar. They put on such a phony show when corporate does it walk thru. They make it seem like they are Enthusiastic and really driven. This act is far far from the truth. They barely do anything... — read more
I see the Selling and Support Captain jobs open all over the place.. most stores have 4 open jobs for this position? isn't this the former lead position? and did they clean house on the old leads that used to work or did they all just quit?
a manager was fired for telling an associate to ask permission for using restroom.
Numbers in the toilet? Nobody wants to work there and cant find help? Stuff being stolen left and right? Everyone on the verge of quitting? Cant keep employees and have high turn over? Remember you got rid of everyone ! .. all the talent and... — read more

It’s been like this for a while now. We are nothing but a number. Leadership doesn’t care about any of us - even though they talk a good game it’s not true. Everyone is bitter and feels overworked but no matter how much we ask there is no relief... — read more
There is one thing I am certain of after a few years working at M - people love to share other people’s business and it happens every day in the stores. There is a lot of loose lips which shows a lack of professionalism and maturity. Protect yourself... — read more
Red badge here, what’s your opinion on all the prep that goose into practicing speeches for deep dives and regional visits? I feel CSX’s and OVM’s spend and waste more time preparing to impress senior executives then make sure we give excellent... — read more

I can't wait to leave, but on the other hand I'm a bit nostalgic because I know that things could have been a lot better here. It may sound stupid, but in spite of everything, I have some nice memories for this place. There are very few people left... — read more
Any OVM managers here? How is the position treating you? Yes or No to go for it?
It is not too late for Macys to be an online powerhouse. They blew it years ago by not recognizing and maximizing this potential- management just enamored with their current success and power. Amazon is still a messing, disorganized, disingenuous... — read more
Everybody seems worried about layoffs but in reality, we have layoffs very seldom. Instead, people are getting fired all the time and many of them for ridiculous things/no reason at all. I think Macy's has no need for layoffs when they can just fire... — read more

I had the pleasure of working at Macy’s during the “golden age” right before cell phones, internet became a huge thing, I started in 1997 and left in 2002, but honestly can’t remember if Macy’s even had online sales back then. But customer service... — read more

So we have a bunch of "Captain's" in our store. Can someone tell me what is the role of the Captain? We have a new manager that is so overwhelmed that she hides from our department. No one ever sees her on the selling floor. It seems like the... — read more
Work/life balance is out of whack at big dump.. but i do believe they are doing it so you quit or find another job.. its by design.. prove me wrong below ..
Macy's can no longer solve even the smallest of problems, not to mention a bunch of bigger problems. Someone already mentioned, employees have problems even with the temperature in stores. How can they solve major problems of their employees, if... — read more
So far I have not had a store manager here who had the ability to separate personal from professional. The current SM cultivates an inexplicable animosity towards certain employees and this is clearly noticeable. Why is that? Why is this happening?... — read more
