MENOMONEE FALLS, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin-based Kohl's Department Stores plan to hire over 50,000 temporary employees for the holiday shopping season.
That's about 3,000 fewer people than in a similar announcement it made a year ago.
Kohl's, which is based in Menomonee Falls, said Thursday it would hire an average of 40 seasonal workers for each of its 1,100-plus department stores in 49 states. It also plans to hire an extra 6,400 people for Kohl's distribution centers, plus 350 to work on credit issues.
The hiring began earlier this month. Kohl's says most jobs will be filled by the middle of November.
Some of the jobs will only be for a few hours a week. Others will offer more than 20 hours of work each week.
