Macy's To Hire 80,000 Seasonal Workers

Macy's holiday hiring seasonal jobs

Macy's Inc., operator of the Macy's and upscale Bloomingdale's chains, said on Monday it would hire about 80,000 seasonal workers for the upcoming holiday season, a 2.6 percent increase over last year's levels.

Macy's will hire people to work as sales associates, work in store operations positions, at call centers, and in distribution and fulfillment centers to support the department store operator's growing online business. The retailer becomes the latest, following Kohl's Corp., Toys R Us and Walmart Stores Inc., to hire more people compared with last year, as consumer spending continues to recover gradually.





Macy's has outperformed rivals like Kohl's and J.C. Penney Co. this year in terms of sales gains. Sales at stores open at least a year, or same-store sales, rose 3.7 percent in the first half of the fiscal year, which ended in late July, and Macy's expects them to rise at a similar pace in the second half, which includes the holiday quarter.

Sorry AOL but....consumer spending is NOT recovering gradually as you claim. Fact is, durable goods ordering and spending is way down as is non-durables. Go do your homework---or at least tell the public the truth if ya dare.

After Christmas, it's back on the dole.

Minimum wage, less than 40 hours a week, no benefits, no insurance, no benefits.
The new American way.

Seasonal, low-paying jobs with no benefits or future. That's exactly what this country needs!
