Macy’s, Inc. plans to hire an additional 7,000 seasonal associates for positions at its Macy’s stores nationwide due to strong sales on Black Friday. The department store chain originally said it would hire 80,000 workers for the holidays in September.
“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 is the largest department store chain in the nation with 700 stores under the names Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s.
