Macy’s plans to hire approximately 80,000 seasonal workers for positions at its namesake and Bloomingdale’s stores, call centers, distribution centers, and online fulfillment centers nationwide for the 2017 Christmas and holiday season.
The company is planning a national holiday hiring event, which is expanding to two days this year. It will occur on on Thursday, September 28, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday, September 29, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., local time. Job candidates can visit Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s Backstage stores, as well as the company’s call centers, distribution and fulfillment centers to apply for the seasonal positions. To identify open positions and opportunities for on-site interviews, candidates can also apply online.
“Macy’s greatest strength is our talent, and our associates, who directly engage with our customers, play a major role in our success,” said Jeff Gennette, Macy’s CEO. “During the holiday season, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s shoppers appreciate our higher staffing levels wherever they connect with us, in stores, online and mobile, or by phone, and our associates love the income-earning opportunity. We first offer current associates the opportunity to work extra hours over the holidays, and then add to our workforce with seasonal hires. We also employ students, retirees and individuals from many walks of life who wish to supplement their income and benefit from receiving a merchandise discount. We are proud to offer them this opportunity to work in a fun, fast-paced and collegial environment.”
