Macy’s to host first national holiday hiring day


Macy’s is the latest retailer to announce it will hire roughly the same amount of holiday employees as last year.

This holiday season, the department store giant plans to hire approximately 83,000 associates for positions across its Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s stores, call centers, distribution centers and online fulfillment centers nationwide.

To streamline the process, Macy’s will host its first national holiday hiring day on Friday, Sept. 30, when candidates can apply at any Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s Backstage store locations.

Specifically, Macy’s is allocating 15,000 associates in direct-to-consumer fulfillment facilities that support sales generated by the company’s omnichannel business strategy. This is an increase of 3,000 positions compared to 2015.

These positions are located in Macy’s “mega-centers” in Arizona, Connecticut, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia, as well as in product-specific fulfillment centers in California, N.J., and Maryland. Another 1,000 associates will support telephone, e-mail and online chat at customer service centers in Ohio, Florida and Arizona.
