Kohl’s kicking off holiday hiring ‘earlier than ever’
Amid a tight labor market, Kohl’s Corp. is looking to get a jump on seasonal hiring.
The department store retailer said Wednesday that it has begun hiring for the back-to-school, fall and holiday seasons. Positions are now available at more than 300 stores, with additional hiring to begin at all Kohl’s stores, along with its nine distribution and e-commerce fulfillment centers and credit operations nationwide, in August. Hiring will continue through the holiday season.
"We are hiring seasonal associates earlier than ever to ensure our teams are fully staffed, trained and ready to support peak shopping seasons," said Ryan Festerling, executive VP of human resources, Kohl’s.
Festerling added that Kohl’s will offer its current employees the opportunity to increase their hours first, and will add new seasonal workers to meet the individual staffing needs of each store, distribution and fulfillment center, and credit support location.
Kohl’s said it offers seasonal hired competitive wages, a weekly pay schedule, an immediate 15% Kohl’s discount – which can be stacked with other applicable Kohl’s coupons – and special “associate shop” days for more savings. Employees also have the opportunity to be considered for open full-time and part-time positions.
