Hiring for holidays underway

By Lacey Peterson, The Union Democrat

'Tis nearly holiday season and seasonal jobs are up for the taking.

There are more than 60 part-time holiday positions at Tuolumne County businesses, not including seasonal help for Christmas Tree farms, hotels and restaurants. Open application time for many employers has begun and will close by Thanksgiving, so now is the time to apply.

Wal-Mart usually hires between 20 and 25 part-time employees for the

holiday season - Thanksgiving through Christmas and New Year's, Sonora

Wal-Mart staff said Tuesday.

The open application period has already begun for Wal-Mart, Kohl's,

Ross Dress for Less, TJ Maxx and Lowe's (set to open Dec. 24).

Ross and TJ Maxx officials say they've already begun hiring for holiday help.

Kohl's of Sonora anticipates hiring 35 associates for the holiday season by mid-November, a Kohl's statement said.

In 2009, Kohl's hired an average of 30 associates per store.

Officials say its hiring levels will vary depending on the needs of

each store.

Seasonal associates can work anywhere from a few hours to more than 20 hours per week, Kohl's officials said.

Typical retail store jobs include unloading trucks, freight processing, stocking and cash register duties.

Tractor Supply officials say they're not really hiring extra

holiday help, and Safeway officials explained regular employees will

just get more hours.

Many big-box stores accept applications online and people can also

contact the Mother Lode Job Connection for more information on seasonal

employment. To visit the Job Connection online, go to
