DENVER — Macy's announced it will hire more than 600 employees in Colorado in advance of the holiday shopping season.
The retail chain said the employees will be hired to fill full-time and part-time positions at stores, call centers and distribution and fulfillment centers.
Across the United States, Macy's hopes to hire approximately 76,000 full-time and part-time workers. Approximately 48,000 of these roles are for the holiday season, while the remaining roles are permanent, said Macy's.
Macy's also announced its current workers can earn a referral bonus of up to $500 for every friend and family member they recruit.
“Macy’s, Inc. colleagues are the foundation of the best-in-class shopping experience that customers know and love from our brands, whether they’re shopping in store, online or on our mobile apps,” said Danielle Kirgan of Macy’s.
“We are proud to provide colleagues with ample opportunities and resources to grow in a dynamic, collaborative and inclusive environment during the holidays and every day of the year. Macy’s, Inc. offers competitive pay, flexible scheduling, optional overtime and additional incentives whether a colleague is joining our team to temporarily supplement their income and benefit from our merchandise discount or to help shape the future of an iconic retailer through a more permanent position.”
UPS announced will hire 2,455 seasonal workers in Denver ahead of the busy holiday shipping season.
Because of the anticipated annual increase in package volume that will begin in October, UPS said it expects to hire over 100,000 seasonal employees nationally.
