Kohl’s is boosting its seasonal hiring efforts for the back half of the year, and said it plans to hire 90,000 seasonal associates.
As part of its hiring total, Kohl’s plans to hire 7,000 associates to staff up a 135-store omni power center pilot supporting increased digital demand fulfilled by stores during the season. Omni power centers within store locations enhance Kohl’s fulfillment capabilities during peak periods by equipping them with more inventory, technology and process enhancements to allow associates to be more efficient in fulfilling digital orders.
New this year, Kohl’s will host its first-ever national hiring event on Saturday, October 5, at all stores and e-commerce fulfillment centers nationwide with the intent to hire 5,000 seasonal associates in one day.
“Our early hiring strategy continues to work well for us, with thousands of seasonal associates already hired and beginning their seasonal positions at Kohl’s,” said Marc Chini, Kohl’s senior evp/chief people officer. “We continue to see tremendous interest from talented candidates ready to join our results-oriented team across our entire network of stores, e-commerce fulfillment and distribution centers nationwide. We are confident our strategy will once again position Kohl’s to meet holiday demand and provide the incredible service our customers know and expect from Kohl’s.”
Kohl’s began early seasonal hiring at 500 Kohl’s stores in July, with seasonal positions now available at more than 1,100 stores, distribution and e-commerce fulfillment centers nationwide.
