The countdown to the holiday season has begun, and with it, the search for seasonal workers. Sales are expected to rise compared to last year. So for some stores, being prepared is at the top of the checklist.
"We're looking at hiring about a little over 50 people," said Target store manager, Ryan Hartman.
The clock is ticking and pretty soon holiday chaos will be coming to a store near you. Retailers like Target in Weston are getting ready to tackle what this season has in store.
"We're hiring everything, we hire cashiers, pharmacy, logistics, sales floor, car attendants, every work center in our store," said Hartman.
Target store manager Ryan Hartman says they've hired 10 part-time seasonal workers already. Buy they're still looking for dozens more, to keep up with sales. According to The National Retail Federation, holiday sales this year could top more than $500 billion. A 4 percent increase from last year.
"We did have a really really good turnout last year and it was just a tell tale sign this year should be a good year as well," said Hartman.
While Target is looking to fill some positions, another store across town checked that off the list 2 weeks ago.
"People have been coming in pretty regular handing in their applications, and I only have one part-timer because I'm a smaller business," said Jody Malsack.
Jody Malsack, owner of Again and Again resale shop in downtown Wausau, recently opened the store in May. She says she's not sure what to expect this holiday season. But she's confident in her new seasonal employee, who's already hard at work.
"It's been great, I want see the store do well," said seasonal employee, Eric Dee.
Officials say hiring those extra helpers is key to doing well, as they prepare for a hectic season.
Target store managers say they are still accepting applications for part-time seasonal positions. If you'd like to apply, you can head to the store or visit http://www.target.com
