  • Congratulations to Macy's, Inc. Chairman and CEO Jeff Gennette, who was named Executive of the Year by Retail Dive. “Gennette's vision, which included the acquisition of pop-up store concept Story, as well as a minority stake investment in tech retail concept b8ta, has so far helped the iconic retailer reimagine its purpose for customers in a new era for department stores.” http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQhmF

    Executive of the Year: Jeff Gennette, Macy's

    I know what's really right at Macy's, and I know what doesn't need to get fixed at Macy's. And I know what's wrong and where we need to attack. Jeff Gennette worked his way up the Macy's food chain from his first role as an executive trainee at Macy's West in San Francisco in 1983.

  • In honor of World AIDS Day, Macy's supported San Francisco’s annual Light in the Grove event at the National AIDS Memorial Grove, where 600+ guests came together to remember the lives lost to AIDS, inspire healing, and convey a message of hope for future generations. #WAD2018

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Macy's Technology.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter, followed by in-person interview. The recruiter, calling in from home that day, gave me a list of people I would speak with, which turned out not to quite match the list of people I actually spoke with. The senior person among the group left part way through the interview. One person asked mostly "tell me about a time when" questions and those went very well. Although they did not specify this, I got the feeling they wanted someone with a software engineering background (which I do not have). Following the in-person interview, the company has not contacted me in any way, even to tell me that they do not intend to make me an offer.
