Kohl’s preps for holiday season with hiring at 1,100 stores

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.

Interested applicants can apply at KohlsCareers.com.

“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.
