Kohl’s Department Stores says it will hire 52,700 store associates for the upcoming holiday season, a 10 percent increase over last year’s in-store seasonal hiring.
An additional 5,700 seasonal workers will be hired at distribution centers and 30 additional staffers for the retailer’s credit operations.
The retailer is hiring, on average, 41 workers per store. There are more than two dozen Kohl’s locations in metro Atlanta. The retailer has 1,146 stores in 49 states.
The jobs are part time and range from positions on the loading dock and in freight processing to stocking shelves and cashiers. The hours range from a few to more than 20 a week. The retailer hopes to finish hiring by mid-November.
