Macy’s To Hire 80K Holiday Workers

Macy’s will hire approximately 80,000 seasonal workers for the upcoming holiday season, with nearly 30% of those new hires to be positioned in direct-to-consumer fulfillment facilities.

A majority of the remaining temporary hires will fill positions at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s stores, call centers and distribution centers during the holidays. The 2018 hiring plans call for an increase of 5,500 positions over 2017 as the retailer works to further enhance the omnichannel experience for its shoppers, Macy’s officials said.

In addition, approximately 1,000 people will be hired across the country to support the 92nd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Santalands and other holiday events.
