Drop that Pumpkin Spice latte. Even though you haven't finished that leftover Halloween candy, retailers are already preparing for the holiday shopping season in full swing.
Sooner than you know it, you won't be able to make a quick trip to your local mall without being surrounded by Christmas trees and disquieting mall Santas.
But if you're looking for some part-time work this holiday season, the Christmas spirit might not be so nauseating.
Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. said it expects retailers to post more than 248,000 seasonal jobs, despite the struggling retail environment.
Target (TGT - Get Report) is looking for 100,000 workers at its 1,816 stores and 4,500 at its distribution centers and fulfillment facilities. Macy's (M - Get Report) plans to hire 18,000 holiday workers to fulfill online orders, according to Reuters. Meanwhile, arts and crafts retailer Michaels (MIK - Get Report) plans to offer 15,000 positions.
