Macy’s to increase holiday hires by 3.6%, driven by increased omnichannel needs

Cincinnati -- Macy’s said it plans to hire about 86,000 seasonal associates for its Macy's and Bloomingdale's stores, call centers and distribution and fulfillment centers for the 2014 holiday season, an increase of about 3.6% from 2013.



In particular, Macy’s said, its seasonal workforce has grown in recent years in the company’s network of online fulfillment centers in support of increased sales generated by the company’s omnichannel business strategy.



In 2014, approximately 10,000 of the 86,000 total seasonal positions will be based in the direct-to-consumer fulfillment megacenters in Martinsburg, West Virginia; Goodyear, Arizona; Portland, Tennessee; and Cheshire, Connecticut, and well as in product-specific fulfillment centers in Sacramento, California; Stone Mountain, Georgia; Secaucus, New Jersey; and Joppa, Maryland.
