As we approach the holiday season, stores stock up on products in anticipation of the gift-giving rush and some even have seasonal hiring opportunities for thousands of job-seekers. 

Toys ”R” Us and Kohl's are anticipating this busy winter with plans to hire more than 40,000 seasonal employees at stores and distribution centers nationwide.

Toys "R" Us seasonal employees will take on more hours than in previous years with 18 to 20 hours a week and will provide extra hours opportunities for current employees.

Some job opportunities may open up to year-round employment at Toys ”R” Us as 20 percent of the company’s holiday employees retained a full position after the holidays last year.

Kohl’s plans on expanding its employment by hiring more than 69,000 people nationwide for their holiday rush and expect to hire an average of 50 associates per store at all 1,166 of them.

Hiring positions will depend on the business needs of each store, but Kohl's expects to fill each position by mid-November.
