No, I'm not a Macy's employee.
The huge majority of the parade positions go to Macy's employees, but my understanding is that an employee can sponsor a family member or guest.

That's what makes this experience so incredible - the number of non-employees in the parade is very small, and my sponsor was very generous to give me a shot at it!
