Yes, Virginia, Santa Claus is still three months out, but he’s going to need a lot of retail helpers this year as companies begin ramping up seasonal hiring. Among them you will find Kohl’s who announced this week plans to hire 90,000 seasonal associates in the days ahead to handle the holiday crush.
With the holiday season just around the corner, Kohl’s has provided updates on seasonal hiring efforts for the back half of the year, in addition to announcing plans to hire 90,000 seasonal associates.
As part of its hiring total, Kohl’s plans to hire 7,000 associates to staff up a 135-store omni power center pilot supporting increased digital demand fulfilled by stores during the season. Omni power centers within store locations enhance Kohl’s fulfillment capabilities during peak periods by equipping them with more inventory, technology and process enhancements to allow associates to be more efficient in fulfilling digital orders.
New this year, Kohl’s will host its first-ever national hiring event on Saturday, October 5th, at all stores including the Fairplain Plaza store in Benton Harbor, as well as at e-commerce fulfillment centers nationwide with the intent to hire 5,000 seasonal associates in one day.
