With the holidays right around the corner, we could all use some extra money. Not only do we need to prep for decorating the house, hosting parties, cooking, and of course, gift giving, but all of our usual monthly expenses aren’t going anywhere, either. No matter how prepared for the holiday season we may feel, a little extra cash in our wallets certainly wouldn’t hurt.
Joining the masses of big name retailers who are bulking up on staff for the holidays, Amazon recently announced that they’ll be doing some mass hiring for seasonal positions…120,000 workers to be exact. UPS, Target, Macy’s, and JCPenney all recently announced that they’ll be doing some serious hiring for seasonal help. So, if you’re looking for work, Amazon might be the perfect fit for you!
