RBR Staff Writer Published 20 September 2013

American departmental store chain Kohl’s Department Stores (KSS) is planning to hire about 50,000 seasonal employees across its outlets in the US.

The hiring would be undertaken during this holiday season, which is believed to support seasonal business in stores and growth on Kohls.com.

An average of 40 associates are expected to be hired per store, the company said.

In addition, the retailer is looking to hire approximately 6,400 seasonal positions at distribution centers across the country and approximately 350 seasonal credit operations positions.

Seasonal jobs available will include unloading trucks, freight processing, stocking and cash register duties. The company expects to complete hiring by mid-November.

Kohl's chief customer officer Michelle Gass said, "In order to ensure we provide excellent customer service during the busiest time of the year, Kohl's is hiring more than 50,000 associates across the country to maintain the high level of service our shoppers appreciate."

Based in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, Kohl's is a family-focused, value-oriented specialty department store offering moderately priced, exclusive and national brand apparel, shoes, accessories, beauty and home products. It presently operates 1,155 stores in 49 US states.
