The holiday shopping season is fast-approaching – and so are the “You’re Hired!” phone calls and emails for hundreds of thousands of people.
More than 800,000 people are expected to nab a seasonal job in the U.S. retail industry this year. This will be the highest number of seasonal hires in 15 years.
Gap Inc., as one of the nation’s largest retailers, is set to hire more than 63,000 people for seasonal work this holiday season. This is basically equal to offering a retail job to everyone in Santa Cruz, Calif.
Gap and Banana Republic are hosting in-store hiring events throughout the week of Oct. 13 - 18, and Athleta and Old Navy are holding all-day events on Saturday, Oct. 18. (Check for local dates and times.)
