As the holiday season approaches, retailers typically bulk up their payrolls with seasonal workers to help deal with the rush of business. Two high-profile retailers – Macy’s and Target – have publicized their hiring plans for the season in recent days.

Target said it plans to hire about 100,000 seasonal employees ahead of the 2023 holidays and Macy’s said its hiring plans call for bringing about 38,000 seasonal workers.

Target is hiring workers for the sales floor, to provide same-day fulfillment services, and sort and ship orders. Those moves and others, mean Target “is making it easier than ever for our guests to embrace the joy of the season” said Chief Growth Officer Christina Hennington. “We’ll have great deals every day, on top of our everyday low prices our only-at-Target exclusives, robust assortment of owned and national brands, new partnerships, and industry-leading fulfillment services.”

In a similar vein, Macy’s Chief Transformation and Human Resources Officer Danielle Kirgan said: “The holidays are one of Macy’s, Inc.’s most important seasons to deliver a great shopping experience for our customers and our colleagues are the company’s greatest brand ambassadors at this special time of year. We are pleased to enhance our team of customer service professionals during the holidays with more than 38,000 seasonal positions. Whether they are looking for extra income for the season or the start of a new career in retail, we offer an unmatched culture, competitive pay and fulfilling retail career opportunities.”

The retailer said it has openings at its Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury stores, as well as its distribution centers.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
