MARTINSBURG, WV (AP) -

Macy's Inc. plans to hire about 2,100 seasonal workers at its fulfillment center in Martinsburg for the upcoming holiday season.

The number of planned hires is three times the amount of seasonal workers that the company initially projected it would hire.

Macy's spokesman Jim Sluzewski told The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown, Md. that more seasonal workers are needed because of rapid growth in the company's online business.

The center employs 1,100 year-round workers.

Available seasonal positions will include full-time human resource administrator, overnight maintenance engineer, seasonal warehouse associate and seasonal security associate.
