You can add seasonal job to the list of many people’s holiday traditions these days. Malls, large retail stores and shipping companies are typically atop the list of best places to find part-time holiday work. Unfortunately, if you were hoping to pick up a second job this year, you may be out of luck as many businesses have already completed their hiring.
The good news is that holiday temp hiring is up this year, if only slightly, compared to 2009. One forecast predicted up to 650,000 additional retail jobs for the holidays. Toys R Us alone was expected to add about 45,000 seasonal workers this year, according to a September report.
Have you ever worked part time during the holidays? What was your experience like? Do you have a holiday job lined up this year?
