Seasonal Hiring For The Holidays Is Ramping Up
In case, you hadn’t noticed, the holidays are coming, maybe sooner than you’d like. On a positive note, anyone looking to make a few extra bucks or get a discount at one of their favorite retailers should start submitting their applications.
This news station in Columbia, SC has interviews with a few local companies who say they’re looking for dozens of workers to help out.
HoneyBaked Ham is looking for 10,000 workers across the country, including 1,000 in the Atlanta area.
Toys R Us is looking for 45,000 workers. Macy’s is seeking 86,000 workers. Target wants 70,000 workers. And Walmart is looking for 60,000 people.
And if retail isn’t your thing, UPS is looking for 95,000 workers. These are jobs that largely pay about $10, and they’ll be actively using social media to recruit. The company is working to avoid what happened last year, when a deluge of packages were sent around Black Friday and the final days before Christmas Day.
So now’s the time to get down to the mall or your town’s main street to start getting those applications in. We’d also suggest a trip to your local temp agency if that sort of work is more your style. This is the time in which a lot of people take vacations, meaning there are offices in need of workers to fill in for trip takers.
