With unemployment still in double digits in metro Atlanta, are you more likely to go after a temporary holiday job now?
Toys R Us says it will hire about 45,000 employees to help with the holiday season, doubling its U.S. work force, Associated Press reported.
The company said it is hiring more workers than in the past three holiday seasons because of an additional 600 smaller stores located in malls and shopping centers, AP wrote. Those “pop-up” stores are called Toys R Us Express.
In metro Atlanta, Toys R Us has already added a dozen stores in malls and outlet centers, with more on the way. Other retailers and distributors also pump up hiring during the holidays.
Given how tough it is to find a job these days, will you consider temporary employment? Or will you hold out for a permanent position?
