Has anyone received a severance letter yet?
They eliminated at least 12 cosmetic positions- short staffed to begin with- any idea what their plan is?
Associates and managers working in the GOB locations are kept until the completion of the GOB. Afterwards, it will be either relocation to a nearby location or severance. It's how it was, and it's going to be how it will be. Completion of Inventory... read more
I used to work for Macy’s, and know many people who did and still do, and all the lay offs are stemming from what I’m told is them spending almost 200 million on a new Employee system that s---s and I hear can’t properly pay employees and they are... read more
Who plans on negotiating their severance package? Any success with this? Does an attorney in labor laws help? Some lawyers specialize in negotiating severance any thoughts? Let’s get em boys... help each other out!

With the reduction in loss prevention, we’re seeing more broken security tags, ripped off tickets, and empty hangars all over in each our fitting rooms. We won’t have any merchandise left to sell or pick for fulfillment. Does anyone know what the... read more
The lack of information as to why me and not others is frustrating. Under the OWBPA (Older Workers Benefits Protections Act) those over 40 I think have different entitlements. 1 is that the 7 day waiver is not applicable; 21 is the entitlement and... read more
So seriously, it seems the only groups untouched by layoffs are DMs and RMDs. What gives? All these folks give direction now to who? No one left in stores!
I was told yesterday via phone that my position was eliminated. I have been with Macys over 5 years and a Magic Maker (that award they had out each year that entitles you to 30% o the back vs 20%) for two years. What baffles me is that the surveys... read more
There’s no point of going to Macys anymore. The service is terrible and you can’t find help. Where is the aspirational experience? The Macys name used to mean something in retail. Now it’s about the same as Kohls. The brands are a little better but... read more
My schedule on Insite goes past the target elimination date of 2/3/18. Does this mean my job is not being eliminated?
So, according to the latest WARN, 436 employees will be laid off by Macy's on March 18, 2018 in California as three locations close. I'm trying to figure out if these locations were already known or not - the article is a little confusing... read more

Does anyone have a list of the growth 50 stores? Please post
Does anybody know which stores are considered "Select locations", regarding all these cuts? I work at a Big Door store . Have not seen any cuts yet. Store is running on a bare staff already. If they cut anymore staff, iMacys might as well become self... read more
Anyone know of any stores cutting this job?
Interesting site here I just found.... /
After what we went through as Sales Managers last year, I thought it couldn't get any worse. I am concerned now that we have cut so many of our Associates, we are too top heavy .... too many leaders and not enough Associates to lead. Does anyone know... read more
Does anyone know why they are doing these massive layoffs? Especially in the cosmetics department? How do the expect to run a cosmetics department when there is no one really staffed? 7 people were cut from our cosmetics department. Several where top... read more

So I know they told most people they are eliminating positions and to interview. When will they actually serve the paperwork as well as tell people who got jobs. Really not fair or nice to leave us hanging! Karma is a bytch.
Found this in another thread () but found it to be such a perfect summary of what Macy's currently is that I had to make it into its own thread: I am a vendor rep who visits my nearest Macy's on a regular basis. A few months ago, I... read more
I've been hearing rumors that more closures will be announced next week, but I can't find anything to confirm that. Usually there is at least some chatter here, but this time nothing. Should I just ignore this as pure speculation? I guess with... read more
Has any one heard anything about the Jewelry Complex Associates and Clericals?
If you are still employed at MCCS in Mason, start looking for a job now. Many more jobs being eliminated. No one is safe.
If you are about to go through a job transition you have to remember this is all about you now. Take all the time needed to gather all the information necessary before you roll off. It is a process, take advantage of any job transition classes etc... read more
I got the word today I was cut. 28 years in two stores (my store closed 2 yrs ago), 95 attendance credits which says I am reliable not late or calling out. Only part time, but I feel just awful. Good record - just my time is up.
Bring Terry back, he knows how to run the Company . Get rid of The freak show! .
Anybody knows if those of us working in stores set to be closed can transfer to nearby Macy's? There are two other Macy's stores that are not too bad for me commute wise (not ideal, but better than nothing,) and I was thinking of applying for a... read more
With all the cuts at the store level. Let's have one huge center wrapstand with one associate on each floor. Empty rolling racks at each fitting from so that customers can put away their clothes. Offer 10% off, if customers put away there own go... read more
I worked over 20 years for MST and lost my job today. Many others as well. Hard to say where all of this is going. Wish the best to those that remain.

There are going to be more ops/apm manager positions open then there are people that are going to apply for them. How is that going to work? And what do you think the plan will be for them to fill the open positions? In my area most of the tenured... read more
As a vpsm I find it ridiculous that we are cutting thousands of jobs in the stores.but we can spend millions to send every vpsm to Las Vegas for a two day meeting. But don’t worry you should still exceed sales and magic in your stores with less... read more
Jeff, Who came up with this strategy. You need to trim the fat from the top not the bottom. People on top you are so out of touch with what really happens in stores. How can you make staff cuts For year's customers have been screaming for help on... read more
