Kohl’s is looking to hire employees for more than 1,100 stores in preparation for the busy holiday season.
The chain retailer forecasts that it will hire at a similar level in recent years. Last year, nearly 14,000 seasonal associates stayed on after the holiday season to continue working at Kohl’s.
Kohl’s will host a seasonal hiring day at more than 200 locations across the country. Interested candidates can stop by participating Kohl’s stores on Saturday, Oct. 7 for the opportunity to interview and potentially receive a seasonal job offer that day.

“From investing in technology that enables our associates to work faster and more efficiently, to hiring hundreds of new associates for our fifth e-commerce fulfillment center which opened in August, we are ready to serve our customers however they choose to shop Kohl’s - in our stores, online, or on a mobile device - this holiday season,” the company said in a statement.
Kohl’s is currently hiring at at least 12 stores in Ohio currently. Kohl’s has locations in Beavercreek, Huber Heights, Centerville, Miamisburg, Middletown, Troy, Springfrield, Lebanon, West Chester and Fairfield. The Wisconsin-based retail chain reported in February 2016 that it would close 18 stores across the country.
