    Finally a success story at Macy�s

    Finally a success story at Macy�s

    We are doing really well with our layoffs and realignments here in the south . We had planned several months ago to hire on several part time associates and of course we did. This has made it capable for us to cut back on several full time employees so our plan was a success, and we here in the upper management can finally celebrate on a plan well done. I hope this will make the share holders have a little more confidence in us despite our obvious blunders.

    Now all we have to do is get through the holiday season, and cut back more full time employees at the end of December 2007. With all the part timers we are hiring for the holiday season this will give us a excellent bullpen to pull from , and this will get our payroll in outstanding shape. Thanks for the patients in advance.

      One other success to this topic is being able to lower inventories on hand. I am part of the layoffs of 2010 and also was a faithful customer of Macy's since they chose to lay me off or down size as they like to say I never shop there anymore and niether do most of my friends so they shouldn't have to carry so much inventory. It's a win,win.

      Think about it you have executives pulling down 6 and 7 figure salaries and the company is placing all its hope for success on magic selling.

      Magic selling is basic selling 101 and the company is talking like it something new and wonderful.

      Please don't tell me about the localization of merchandise for local markets that is a bunch of b?ll ShXt.

      Sentiment: What the Hell

      Blind leaders hypocrites all they do not let others achieve nor do they achieve themselves. They swallow a cow and choke on a fly.

      What ever they decide it will not matter a hill of beans. The management in charge do not have a clue the decisions they make at this level will be made in regard to personal likes and dislikes no achievement or accomplishment needed you can just leave that at the door.

      Oh and don't forget to wipe your feet when you leave the conference room leave all that bad karma with them.

        Mission Accomplished !

        1. Lies
        2. Deceit
        3. Arrogant
        4. Ignorant
        5. Condescension
        6. Promiscuous
        7. Loathing
        8.Patronizing
        9. Prejudice
        10. Favoritism

        This is what we have done to our employees the list real short for the share holder you’ve just been screwed.

      • All Macy's is concerned about with their employees is how many charges they open! That is all the training that is ever given. There is NO merchandise training. It is only, how many charges have you opened? It is a big part of our review system. I'm not sure if merchandise knowledge is even on the review!
        Plus what do you expect when new hires are paid minimum wage? You can make more at any fast food chain. Morale will not change until Macy's puts some value on their employees! Since they took away our use your card discount we don't even get a better discount than the customers!

    • If you shop the aisles of Macy's ( and also some of it's similar mid-tier priced competitiors) and seek to get information about a product prepared to get very frustrated. First of all, there is very little staffing other than scanning the price tickets at the registers; so getting their individual attention requires patience and a bit of luck.

      Try asking how to best launder a 300 thread count sheet, what is a better weave, what are other coordinates to that selection and style?

      Try seeking some advise in children's wear as to what play wear holds up best to wear, abrasion, staining? You are sure to get a perplexed look, and a question back. "What you mean- ("abrasion" ) ?

      Most of the staffing in mid-tier retailers is now of recent immigrants who speak only the most fundamental English. Thank god that mathametics works the same way around the world.

      It is now amazing to me that I get FAR BETTER SERVICE and FAR MORE LIKELY a person who speaks fluent English and is knowledgble about the products in the stores at a regional OUTLET MALL.

      Macy's and others went to part time employees a while back, no wonder so many of us are now PART TIME CUSTOMERS who only shop at the 3rd markdown.

      Do I ever shop full price ? Good question. When I do, I shop at Brooks Brothers, Nordstrom, Tiffany, Crate & Barrel, Sephora, and LL Bean.

      • You are so right! Think about this who's fault is it that these people are not trained right. The store managers job should be to have meetings with the employees in the morning and show new products and discuss them so everyone in the store can be informed about what they sell. She should train her assistants and go over the areas. I have always said in dept. stores it's all about the store manager and how effective they are. As a rep. I think most of the store managers should be an administrative assistant instead of a store manager. Friends have told me that the store managers leave at 5 and the assistants stay until 6 or 7 because they can't do all the work.They say they are terrified of the store manager this is crazy! Somethings wrong there! Your boss should always work harder than you to get respect. Most employees I read their postings have no respect and why should they. This company has a morale problem!

      • I had similar experiences. They sold me pants that were too long. I had to have them altered. They sold me Jocky underwear that didn't fit. I had to drive about 10 miles to exchange them. Their 'know-it-all' attitude got me to buy and out the door only later to find out that I had paid a dear price for what didn't fit. The experiences made me very angry.

      Just playing this one all over again, you see some things never change......................Just change the year to 2008 and hell we don't even need some of the managers or part timers either. Bravo a job outstandingly done executive management!

      The company will start to use Dillard’s department store tactics in managing the store and its employees. The Macy’s management staff really has no ideas on how to manage, so we are looking for direction from our fellow department store brethren.

      Dillard’s has an array of ideas on how to discipline the sales associate. I am looking forward to finally showing the associate who is the BOSS!

      Well, it looks like the management team has come up with fantastic idea. This idea is to change the attitude about the coupons by offering the coupon as a consolations price. This gives the customer a false sense of reward.

      This Red Star promotion Macy’s did weekending 4/06/2008 the customer was so happy they won something, but no gift cards or trips to the Macy’s day parade would be won.

      The up coming promotion has a slant on helping the environment what you do is donate five dollars and get a coupon to use towards you purchase in the store or on internet orders. The only problem with this coupon is it has the same exclusion as the one you receive in the mail or can cut out in the paper.

      The “Go Red” “Books for Children” and “Friends and Family” have hardly any exclusion, why the change on the environmental coupon?

    • Hey folks, is fedupwithma a nasty loser, or what?

    • Success Story! Hello! I don’t think so. What you did is screw your loyal employees and hire part time people to take their place. And, in perspective, what you have really done over the past few years is to first screw the customers with poor product, then screw the employees while all the time doing a very good job of screwing the shareholders. These are all signs of a very poorly run outfit. Why anyone would want to hold this stock is beyond me. I guess Macy's didn't learn anything from Marshall Fields.
