|Macy’s, Inc. to Hire 80,000 Seasonal Associates in 2012|
“Macy’s traditionally implements one of the most robust holiday hiring
programs in American retailing, and that will be the case again in 2012.
Hiring additional associates for holidays ensures that our customers are
well-served in this busy shopping period – both on the sales floor and
behind the scenes,” said
Seasonal associates at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s serve customers on the selling floor, work in store operations positions, interact with customers via the telephone in call centers, and staff the distribution and fulfillment centers that coordinate shipments to stores and directly to customers who buy online.
Most of the positions are part-time, often with flexibility to fit with the availability of the individuals hired. Many positions require the applicant to work evenings, weekends or overnight. In some cases, temporary seasonal associates are offered open year-round positions based on their skills and performance over the holiday season.
Applications for seasonal positions at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s are being accepted at www.macysJOBS.com and www.bloomingdalesJOBS.com. Candidates who submit applications online will receive a response via email. Hiring for store sales positions will begin in mid-October. The company has already begun hiring for sales support positions, such as in distribution centers, call centers and store receiving.
“I often hear stories from our holiday associates about the fun they have working at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s at the holidays,” Lundgren said. “Our stores and websites are busy places and the pace is fast. But it is a magical time of year, and helping customers select gifts from Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s is a special experience that generations of associates have enjoyed and found rewarding.”
