RBR Staff Writer Published 18 September 2014

Kohl’s (KSS), a specialty department store operator, is planning to hire more than 67,000 associates across US this holiday season to support seasonal business in stores and growth on Kohls.com.

With 1,163 stores in 49 states, Kohl's anticipates hiring an average of 50 associates per store to provide customers with excellent customer service throughout the holiday season.

In addition, the company is planning to hire approximately 9,300 seasonal positions at distribution centers across the country and approximately 670 seasonal credit operations positions.

Kohl's senior executive vice president, human resources and general counsel Richard Schepp said: "Kohl's is building a winning team by hiring more than 67,000 seasonal associates across the country to ensure we sustain the great service our customers know and have come to expect.

"By adding these associates, Kohl's will continue to deliver an enjoyable and convenient shopping experience to all our valued customers, whether they choose to shop in store or online at Kohls.com this holiday season," Schepp added.

The retailer noted that it has already started hiring, which is expected to complete by mid-November. Holiday positions are also being filled at the company's distribution centres, where hiring began in August.
