Retailers Hiring Big For Holiday Season
RETAILERS SCRAMBLE TO HIRE TEMP WORKERS AS THE HOLIDAY SEASON WILL BE SO HUGE IT WILL LIKELY OVERWHELM THE STORES
(CNN) – Retailers are offering up holiday gifts to workers, in the form of lots of holiday temp jobs.
Macy’s said it will hire 80,000 seasonal workers, GAP said Monday it will bring on 65,000 temps and Target announced last week it will need to hire 120,000 holiday employees.
Delivery companies like UPS and Fed Ex are looking for 155,000 more workers between the two.
It might be hard to fill so many jobs. So as incentive, Target will offer temp workers $12.00 an hour, store discounts and a gift card lottery.
