Macy’s warehouse to hire 5,000 seasonal employees

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. –  Macy’s logistics center in Portland, Tenn. is providing an employment opportunity for thousands in South Central Kentucky.

Macy’s is looking for seasonal warehouse associates and will be having a mass hiring event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at Daymar College and again on Sept. 26.

There will be an opportunity for people to apply, interview and be hired on the spot at this hiring event.

“You can even do your orientation on the same day if you’re available, or the next day. They’re trying to get as many people and not have a ridiculous waiting period,” Macy’s talent acquisition coordinator Darlene Halman said.

Macy’s will be hiring roughly 5,000 area workers for the holiday work season, which will run from now through the beginning of December.

Pay ranges from $12.50 to $14.50 per hour, and there is an incentive plan that offers bonuses for referrals.

Those interested can attend the hiring event at Daymar College Thursday or later this month on Sept. 26.

Macy’s also welcomes walk-in applicants at the warehouse, and will be hosting events on Tuesdays at Workforce Essentials in Springfield, Tenn. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
