Macy's Looks to Hire 23,500 Temporary Warehouse Employees

As retailers are preparing for the peak holiday season, Macy's is looking to hire 80,000 seasonal employees.


Macy's is planning on hiring 80,000 temporary workers for the holiday seasons, with 23,500 working solely in fulfillment centers. 

Reuters reports that sales expectations for the holiday season usually account for nearly a third of their annual sales. 

Macy's has been vamping its online presence lately to attract more customers. In the second quarter, the company's online business reached double-digit growth, more than 50 percent in the first half of its fiscal year from a year earlier.
