Macy’s is preparing for a holiday season hiring blitz, with a massive telephonic job fair being held Thursday to hire about 6,100 workers for the company’s 97 stores statewide, including outlets in Pasadena, Arcadia, and Glendale, representatives said.
The virtual hiring event will take place between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., according to Macy’s. Positions to be filled include jobs at stores, in fulfillment centers, and at call centers, the company said in a written statement.
“The quick and convenient process allows seasonal candidates to interview from wherever,” the statement said.
Employees are offered competitive pay, access to flexible scheduling, discounts, and opportunities to earn bonuses, according to the company.
Season applicants often receive an offer the same day they are interviewed, and many stay on with the company beyond the holiday season.
“Our colleagues help bring the magic of Macy’s to life during the busy holiday season, performing a number of functions that are critical to providing our customers the best experience when they shop in our store,” according to Macy’s employment website.
One of the available jobs represents a new position for the company.
“To support Macy’s convenient shopping experience, stores will also offer a new, versatile role focused on picking and packing contact-free curbside pickup and same-day delivery orders,”’ the statement said.
Those unavailable for the virtual job fair on Thursday can interview prior to the event, according to Macy’s.
