Kohl’s holiday hiring to reach about 300 locally

Kohl’s has announced it will hire 69,000 seasonal workers this holiday shopping season. That’s roughly 2,000 more than last year.

About 300 of those positions will be available in Western New York. The department store will hire roughly 50 associates per store, and has six locations in Buffalo, Amherst, East Amherst, Lancaster, Orchard Park and Batavia.

Seasonal associates will work filling orders that are bought online and shipped to stores, helping with freight processing, as well as providing customer service on the sales floor and at checkout.

Kohl’s has 1,166 stores in 49 states. About 9,500 of the temporary jobs will be staff positions at distribution and e-commerce fulfillment centers across the country. Another 660 of the seasonal employees will work in credit operations.
