As a Holiday Retail Sales Associate, you will be an integral part of bringing the magic of Macy's to life during the fast-paced holiday season. Associates in this role perform a number of functions that are critical to offering our customers the best experience when they shop in our store. While all holiday positions require working as part of a team to meet department and store objectives, your individual responsibilities will include keeping the selling floor stocked with merchandise and ensuring that fitting rooms are clear and merchandise returned to the selling floor in addition to demonstrating outstanding selling and customer service skills.
In order to present our customers with the best holiday shopping experience, many of our Holiday Retail Sales Associates arrive prior to store opening and remain after closing to ensure we are ready to make Macy's magic. Holiday associates will have the opportunity to work a flexible schedule on a temporary basis, which may include early mornings, evenings, weekends and busy events such as the day after Thanksgiving and the day after Christmas. And don't forget - just in time for holiday shopping, you will receive an employee discount of up to 20% starting your first day!
