With only 13 Friday’s left until Christmas, the holiday hiring frenzy has begun.  Fed-Ex announced they are hiring for 55-thousand jobs across the nation and hundreds of positions are available in Arizona.  U-P-S is on track to hire some 95-thousand employees from November to January, which stacks up to be the same

as last year.  Walmart, Kohl’s and Target are top retailers in the market for season new hires.  Walmart plans on hiring more than 60-thousand associates to cover 24/7 Christmas shopping.  Kohl’s and Target are checking out nearly 69-thousand new hires for retail positions.  What Christmas shopper doesn’t spend hours traipsing around “Toys-R-Us?”  They will hire about 40-thousand clerks for the kids toy retail chain.  These temp jobs may turn into permanent positions.
