After strong traffic in stores to start the holidays, Macy’s plans to hire an additional 7,000 seasonal associates for positions at its stores nationwide for the season.
Seasonal store associates at Macy’s serve customers on the selling floor and work in store operations positions, including fulfilling buy online, pick-up-in-store orders. Most seasonal positions are part-time, often with flexibility to fit the availability of the individuals hired.
“Macy’s has had a great start to this holiday season with high customer volume across our business. Due to the strong traffic in our stores, we are adding associates in our stores across the country to ensure that customers continue to receive the high level of service they have come to expect from us,” said John Harper, Macy’s chief stores officer. “We are excited to be further expanding our seasonal workforce. Seasonal workers play an important role in the Macy’s holiday shopping experience and, in addition to a competitive hourly income, they will experience a flexible working environment and benefit from a merchandise discount.”
Macy’s previously announced that it would 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 holiday season.
