To access Insite, employees of Macy's and Bloomingdale's use the designated Employee Connection website. They go to the Insite link on the home page and enter their employee IDs and passwords. New users must first register with Insite. Instead of entering their login information, they click on New User. Next they fill in the validation screen, including personal information such as Social Security numbers, dates of birth and employee identification numbers, and select Sign In.
Accessing Macy's Insite does not require the employee to be logged in or connected to a corporate server, so users have access to the site from anywhere; however, Macy's recommends a secure connection, as the system contains sensitive, personal information.
Macy's Insite issues new users temporary passwords that they personalize upon their first login. Once logged in, employees have access to benefits information, schedules, time off and personal contact information. To view schedules, employees click on the My Schedule link, which takes them to a separate page displaying their schedules. Additionally, the site gives users the ability to view tax information and print important documents.
Logging in to Macy's Insite also allows users to download medical claim forms and other benefits-related documents such as 401K options and change of family status forms. Employees also use the site to manage their direct deposits and interact with other Macy's and Bloomingdale's employees.
