Cincinnati-based Macy's says it plans to hire 83-hundred workers for the holiday season, a slight increase from last year.
The seasonal employees will work in stores, call centers, distribution centers and online fulfillment centers. As online sales rise, Macy's says more of the seasonal workers have been enlisted to work at online fulfillment centers. This year 66 hundred workers will work in those centers. 12 hundred seasonal positions will be assigned to work in the fulfillment areas of 500 stores that fill and ship orders directly to customers. Most of the positions are part-time.
