The company says most holiday season positions will be filled by mid-November at department store locations nationwide

Department store Kohl’s expects to hire more than 69,000 associates nationwide this holiday season – or approximately 50 new employees per store, the company announced Wednesday.

According to the company, seasonal hiring will soon begin at the 1,166 Kohl’s department stores that span 49 states – including the locations in San Diego County. In addition, the company plans to hire about 9,500 season positions at distribution and e-commerce fulfillment centers across the U.S. and approximately 660 seasonal credit operations positions.

The company says hiring began this month and most jobs will be filled by mid-November.

In-store seasonal associates will help in fulfilling orders purchased online but picked up in store, as well as freight processing duties and customer service on the sales floor and cashier counters. New hires working at distribution and e-commerce centers will also help get orders to retail stores and into the hands of Kohls.com customers.

Hiring levels at locations vary depending on the needs of each store and facility. For information about job opportunities, visit this website.
