  • Why Macy’s

Why work at Macy’s? What makes us stand out as a great place to work?

Is it the discount? The flexible schedule? The great benefits and competitive pay? The fact that you can actually be part of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade? (Think about that last one for a second.)

It’s all of those things, yes. But it’s also something more – something unique that makes Macy’s stand out from the crowd, as the employer of choice for more than 100,000 employees around the country. We talk a lot about the magic of Macy’s - and with good reason. It’s an energy you feel when you walk in the door – a special connection and a sense that good things are happening, whether it’s in one of our stores, a distribution center, call center, or our corporate offices.

From our seasonal part-time retail associates to our call center agents to our corporate executives, people tell us that working here is different. That they’ve made friends and built relationships that make coming to work even more rewarding. That they feel like part of a team. That what we have at Macy’s is something special.

If you’re looking for a job that’s more than a job– whether it’s a part-time retail position or a long-term career opportunity, Macy’s offers something more.

Giving Back

Our colleagues don’t just work for a paycheck. We celebrate together during special occasions and show up during times of need. We create and share joy during the holidays. We are proud to be an integral part of the local communities we serve as an employer, as a hub for both connection and commerce, and as a responsible corporate citizen.

Through our Partners in Time employee volunteer program, cause marketing initiatives, and employee assistance fund, we have a huge impact on life-changing charities including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, National Park Foundation, Go Red for Women, and the North Star Relief Fund – a 501(c)(3) charity established to provide rapid, direct financial assistance to colleagues during times of need. Want to know more about Macy’s and giving back?
