Macy’s and Tampa customer service jobs

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Macy’s is hiring for the holidays and may be looking to fill Tampa customer service jobs.

Macy’s, Inc.’s 2016 seasonal hiring plan includes the following:

  • Approximately 15,000 of the 83,000 total seasonal positions will be based in direct-to-consumer fulfillment facilities that support sales generated by the company’s omnichannel business strategy. This is an increase of 3,000 positions compared to 2015. These positions are located in megacenters in Goodyear, AZ; Cheshire, CT; Tulsa, OK; Portland, TN; and Martinsburg, WV, as well as in product-specific fulfillment centers in Sacramento, CA; Stone Mountain, GA; Secaucus, NJ; and Joppa, MD.
  • About 1,000 associates will be hired to interact with customers via telephone, e-mail and online chat at customer service centers in Mason, Ohio, Clearwater, FL, and Tempe, AZ.
  • More than 1,000 people will be hired across the country to support the 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Santalands and other iconic holiday events.

“These seasonal positions fill an important niche in the American employment spectrum. Especially at the holidays, we employ students working during break to help pay tuition, retirees seeking to remain active, and individuals from many walks of life wanting to supplement their income and benefit from receiving a merchandise discount on their purchases. We are proud to offer them this opportunity to work in a fun, fast-paced and collegial environment,” Lundgren said.

Applications for seasonal positions at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s are being accepted at macysJOBS.com and bloomingdalesJOBS.com, the company’s easy-to-navigate hiring sites. Candidates who submit applications online will receive a response via e-mail.

Most seasonal positions are part-time, often with flexibility to fit the availability of the individuals hired. Many positions require the applicant to work evenings and weekends and some require overnight. In some cases, temporary seasonal associates are offered open year-round positions based on their skills and performance over the holiday season.
