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 people

All Macy's associate should Pickett outside the hotel! Fights to Vegas are cheap!
This is not the big meeting actually. It’s a mon-wed. And we’re told to get back to our stores fast as we have a big part of the big meeting on the Friday of the same week.
Enjoy the party, baby! Eventually, this derelict company will be nothing more than a zoo animal on display in some global management firm's asset portfolio, and maybe a fancy web site no one shops on.
If the meeting in Las Vegas is anything like the Store Manager meetings we have once a year in Reno, you can look forward to senior leadership using the opportunity to humiliate the store executives. Our RDOS has one of these every year and forces the store VP's and District teams to put on stupid skits, perform Gong show worthy musical acts and even feats of strength (one year we had a ridiculous karate guy break bricks on stage).
Afterwards, you can look forward to a free booze dinner with plenty of drunken dancing and inappropriate comments and touching from the senior executives. It is a great time for people with huge ego's to have the inflated even more as VPSM's who are afraid for the their jobs use the occasion to flatter them.
All of this expense at the cost of the stores and shareholders. The materiel covered at these meetings could be covered on a webinar or in a conference call, using a power point presentations. It is sad that with the job cuts this year, that our leaders feel the need to have these type of meetings.
It’s called The Big Meeting. This pow wow happens every year in March.
Don’t sweat it! That’s the money from the tax cuts! You all get a mini vaca to Las Vegas while other companies raise their min wage and give out bonus’ to all their employees! Jeff is a joke and I will enjoy watching him burn this to the ground! Sears 2.0
Nationwide. I’m assuming. I’m in north central

When do the VPSMs go to Las Vegas....is this nationwide or just your region?
