How Do I Get a Job at Macy's?


Macy's is a department store chain that operates more than 800 stores, mainly in the United States. Job opportunities with the retailer include store positions such as sales associates and managers and also corporate positions in marketing, logistics, design and development. Applicants seeking employment with Macy's should visit the retailer's job website and set up an online job seeker account. Applicants can then view open employment positions and submit an application.

Basic Requirements

  • Applicants at Macy's must be at least 18 years old to qualify for a job in most states, and possess a high school diploma or equivalent. Basic sales associate and seasonal sales positions typically do not require prior experience although it is a plus. Management and corporate positions require applicants to have a higher degree of education along with prior relevant work experience. Exceptional customer skills are a must as Macy's prides itself on meeting and exceeding customer's expectations to increase the brand and keep consumers coming back.

Seasonal Opportunities

  • One way to get your foot in the door with Macy's is to seek seasonal employment with the company. Macy's hires a large number of seasonal sales associates each year. In 2013, it hired 83,000 seasonal workers for the holiday shopping season. Most positions are part-time and require evening and weekend hours. A seasonal position is a great way to learn about the job, familiarize yourself with the company and, if desired, express interest in continuing employment after the holiday season. On its website, Macy's states that many regular employees started with the company in seasonal or temporary positions.
