Has anyone received a severance letter yet?
Our store is EMPTY. And by empty, I mean the associates outnumber customers on an overwhelming basis. Stores around the country, what is your foot traffic like? Are you seeing any at all? What are store sales like on a daily basis? Is there any life... read more
They eliminated at least 12 cosmetic positions- short staffed to begin with- any idea what their plan is?
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!
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
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
Center City Philadelphia #213 is announcing major cuts today! Home store, kids, sales supervisors, visual, cosmetics associates, 1 FT mattress/big ticket position ALL eliminated
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
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
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
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 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
Interesting site here I just found.... /
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
1 Asset Protection Manager Spring 2018 Stores and Stores Support Asset Protection Manager Executive Job Elimination (1) Apply and interview for an open position in which they are qualified for (2) Offer severance Note: All moves must be within 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
Does anyone have a list of the growth 50 stores? Please post
My schedule on Insite goes past the target elimination date of 2/3/18. Does this mean my job is not being eliminated?
here we ago again. the 1st week of Jan. everyone thinking is my job going to be eliminated. i heard this will be the mother of all years with 50 more store closing. HR being eliminated. buyers and planners merging. a smaller macys. work on ur resume... read more
After hearing the cuts coming in my store this week, I am speechless. They are far greater than I anticipated. This is insane.
Has any one heard anything about the Jewelry Complex Associates and Clericals?
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
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
Well Christmas is over, the presents all opened and families all fed, time once again for executives to wake early from bed. They will return to their regions, their districts, and stores, and begin the countdown to the news we deplore. January 3rd... read more
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?
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
In my store, we are under the understanding that one associate in each commissioned department is getting the axe. That means one in ladies shoes, men's shoes, suits, BT, etc. Anyone else hearing that?
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.
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.
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
Here's a place Macy's could save a ton of money. How about, when creating business cards, the company ensures they're correct the first time. Printing them 2 or 3 times to correct misspellings just has to cost us a few bucks. And it happens each and... read more
I do not understand why they cannot figure out why traffic is slowed down in the stores. We have had the exact same Three day, One day sale for the last 10 years with the same product and pricing! Customers know it will be on sale next week without... read more
Overheard a DHRM say that if anyone that is layed off they would not receive packages. The only exception would be people with 20+ years of employment. Anyone hear anything?
Rumor is that this position will be cut next year.
Does anyone have any idea what, if any, cuts will be announced tomorrow? Are they store or district cuts? Associate or store executive cuts? Specific positions being cut? Thus far, the only cuts I am aware of are APMs and MSOs- nothing really else... 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
