Published 18 September 2015

Kohl’s is planning to hire more than 69,000 associates nationwide this holiday season to support seasonal business in stores and growth on Kohls.com.

"Kohl's is hiring more than 69,000 seasonal associates to prepare for another exciting holiday season. We want to ensure we provide the excellent service and easy experience Kohl's customers expect, whether shopping in stores or online," said Richard Schepp, Kohl's chief administrative officer. "By building a winning team of associates, we know we will help our customers continue to enjoy Kohl's incredible savings and amazing product throughout the holiday season and beyond."

Kohl's anticipates hiring an average of 50 associates per store to provide customers with excellent service throughout the holiday season at its 1,166 stores in 49 states. In addition, the company anticipates hiring approximately 9,500 seasonal positions at distribution and e-commerce fulfillment centers across the country and approximately 660 seasonal credit operations positions.

Kohl's is now offering customers the option to buy online at Kohls.com and pick up their order in store at all Kohl's locations across the country. Seasonal associates will assist in fulfilling those orders, as well as Kohls.com orders designated to ship from stores direct to Kohl's customers. Seasonal associates in stores also help with freight processing and customer service on the sales floor and at the point of sale.

Hiring began this month and most jobs will be filled by mid-November. Holiday positions are also being filled at the company's distribution and e-commerce fulfillment centers, where hiring began in August. Associates working at distribution and e-commerce fulfillment centers help ensure Kohl's products get to retail stores and into the hands of Kohls.com customers. Associates working in Kohl's credit operations perform a variety of customer service functions, including assisting customers with Kohls.com orders.

Hiring levels at specific locations vary depending on the business needs of each facility.
