We’ve officially made it to October, which means holiday seasonal hiring is in full swing! Companies really start to prep for the busy holiday season around this time, meaning they have to stock up on extra help to make sure all that crazy seasonal shopping goes smoothly.
So what does this mean for you? Hopefully, it’s an opportunity to make some extra cash, helping you shop guilt-free for your loved ones (or yourself!) or maybe just earn some money to put into savings. Whatever you plan to do with all that extra cash you’ll make be being a seasonal employee, Kohl’s has got you covered if you’re looking for holiday work.
Kohl’s joins the list of other big-name companies that have already started looking for seasonal help, including UPS, Target, and Home Depot. However, unlike these other stores, Kohl’s didn’t just list a specific number of available job roles. UPS announced that they’d be looking to hire about 95,000 people, while Target revealed they were hoping to hire an 100,000 workers for the holidays.
“We continue to refine our company strategy, our hiring strategy, and the culture we’re trying to build,” said Ryan Festerling, Kohl’s executive vice president of Human Resources. “That’s why we’re doing what we’re doing.”
What Kohl’s has decided to do instead is to inquire with their current staff how many extra hours they’re looking to work over the holiday season, that way they can gauge how many seasonal employees they’ll realistically need to take on.
Though the company isn’t posting an exact number of how many employees they’ll need this holiday season, there is no doubt that they’re looking for sales associates, distribution associates and freight associates. The jobs have already been posted on Kohl’s holiday and seasonal jobs webpage. Last year, the company announced that they’d be hiring about 69,000 holiday workers, 14,000 of which ended up staying with the company afterwards!
Kohl’s is also planning on hosting a seasonal hiring day on October 7th at more than 200 locations across the country!
