UPS and Kohl's will hire thousands for holidays

Posted by Iva Radman – email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There's more evidence that the job market is slowly healing.

The labor department says the number of job openings rose in august for the second straight month and layoffs dropped sharply.

UPS expects to hire 50,000 seasonal employees to work during the holidays. The company is beefing up short-term positions during its peak season between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Starting this month workers will be hired to fill positions such as package sorters and driver helpers.  

If you would rather face the hustle and bustle of retail over the holiday season, Kohl's also plans to hire thousands of seasonal workers this year.
