Seasonal Jobs Still Available

By Liz Goff
‘Tis the season for Queens job hunters to cash-in on holiday job opportunities that were not snatched up by early job seekers.

Wages paid to temporary holiday workers vary with each employer, retail analysts say. Remaining job opportunities will disappear in a flash, so apply as soon as possible, analysts say.

Some large retailers are still searching for the right people to fill jobs over the hectic holiday season:

  • Holiday job hunters may still apply for jobs in Macy and Bloomingdale’s stores call centers and distribution centers. To apply, visit www.Macysjobs.com/
  • Lots of local retailers are still searching for holiday workers. Check with the store manager if you see a “Holiday Help Wanted” sign in the window of a local retailer. Remember, local stores can also offer permanent jobs to workers who prove their worth during the holiday season.
  • Holiday job hunters have about one week to apply at JC Penny. For information visit www.jcpenny.net/.
  • Target still has seasonal jobs available at its stores in Queens and Brooklyn. To apply visit www.Target.com.
  • Lord & Taylor is still seeking hiring sales associates and supply associates at its Manhattan and Long Island stores. To apply, visit www.Lordandtaylor.com/careers.
  • Last, but not least, don’t forget Toys “R” Us – one of the city’s largest seasonal employers. Toys “R” Us has seasonal jobs available for cashiers, stock clerks, customer service workers and floor clerks at its stores in Manhattan, Queens and Long Island. To apply, visit www.Ruscareers.com.

People interested in finding hourly employment or temporary positions during the holiday season – or all year long, should log on to www.SnagaJob.com.

Only a fraction of seasonal jobs will lead to permanent employment, job analysts said.

Competition is fierce for the remaining holiday jobs, so apply as soon as possible, retail analysts said.
