Need Extra Holiday Cash? Labor Ready Hiring 1,400 Temps In Columbus

Labor Ready is looking to hire 1,400 temporary workers during the start of the holiday season, kicking off with a gigantic Black Friday event at nearly 20 “Big Box” retail stores around Columbus.

“Starting Thanksgiving morning and going through midnight Friday, we will be going nonstop,” said Nagel Lind, Labor Ready District Manager in the Columbus area. “This will be a massive undertaking. Anyone who is feeling an economic pinch right now — or anyone who just wants some extra shopping money for Christmas — should contact Labor Ready and apply for one of the 1,400 temporary positions for working across the greater Columbus area on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.”

Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving, is traditionally the largest shopping day in the U.S. each year.

Anyone interested in applying for one of these many temporary positions should contact their nearest Labor Ready branch.

Labor Ready has been scouring the greater Columbus area looking for temporary workers.

“We have high standards for the temporary workers we send into retailers. For starters, every temporary worker must pass a background check and a drug test,” said Shannon Davis, manager of the West Columbus Labor Ready branch. “We’ve been putting flyers up at rental offices, check-cashing stores, unemployment offices — any place where people looking for some extra money for the holidays might be going.”

Davis said retailers sometimes take the “cream of the crop” from their holiday temporary workforce and offer them full-time jobs. For example, one Labor Ready temporary worker was hired as the Customer Service Manager at a Whitehall, OH, retail store.

The temporary workers will be doing a number of manual labor jobs, such as cleaning stores, helping customers load and unload products, distributing flyers, checking receipts, retrieving shopping carts, and unloading pallets of product.

“All three of our Columbus Labor Ready branches will be open 24/7 during Thanksgiving/Black Friday. Our West Columbus branch will be working nonstop from Thursday morning until Friday night, dispatching workers, shuttling them around Columbus, and just generally being the nerve center of this massive operation,” Lind said.
