Better Hurry For Holiday Jobs!
This holiday season stores are expected to add over 800,000 temporary jobs. That's the most since 1999. I want to be the Fred Flintstone department store Santa this year, but I better hurry. Most seasonal jobs this holiday season will be filled next month and they expect to begin training in October as well. 70,000 will be hired at Target alone. Macy's and Bloomingdale's will open 86,000 positions. Walmart will bring on 60,000.
The jobs should start opening up pretty early this fall in anticipation of increased spending this holiday season.
