Jobs For The Holidays
It's that time of the year. Time to find a job for extra holiday cash. Who is hiring? Amazon plans to hire 100,000 people for the holidays, and other companies in the area are planning on hiring too. Here's a few of the opportunities in the Stateline.
In addition to the massive seasonal hire from Amazon, there will be other retailers looking to hire you as well.
According to the Chicago Tribune, "It used to be that the bulk of holiday hires would be in customer-facing positions on the sales floor and behind the cash register. These extra workers would also help pick up the slack in the backroom, helping to receive and stock increased deliveries. Now, as more and more shopping is completed online, the holiday hiring is shifting away from stores and into the warehouses."
Wal-Mart indicates that they will be looking to hire 60,000 holiday employees. Target report about 70,000 and Macy's 85,000. Kohl's, J.C. Penney and Toys R Us are hiring less and GameStop will be hiring about 12 percent more workers than last year.
Best advise is get into these locations near you today and ask for details. Just like the holidays, these jobs will come and go fast.
