Local job fairs are hoping to boost hiring numbers for the holiday season

HAZELWOOD, Mo. — We’re still closer to Halloween than Christmas, but retailers are already hiring for the holidays.

Cabela’s in Hazelwood is hosting a National Hiring Day event.

“Every year that we go out, we try to find people who are looking for some extra money for the holidays or who just want to work at Cabela,” said Tommy O’Brien, executive vice president of the Hazelwood Cabela business.

Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops hope to hire 3,500 seasonal, part-time and full-time team members across the country in the next few days. O’Brien said you can apply online or in-store.

“Once the application is received, it’s reviewed by our Human Resources Manager, Megan, and then we move on to the next process, the interview,” he said. “After the interview we do right here and you can get away with a job offer.”

Not only the outdoor specialist trade is longing for help. Other companies hosting job fairs in the St. Louis area this week include Kohl’s, the US Postal Service and the Humane Society of Missouri.

“I think we are starting to see an increase in applicants since COVID has slowed down a bit. Hoping we don’t have an uptrend this year,” O’Brien said. “Things are looking good so far. But yes, it looks up. More applicants. More people are asking about it.”

Kohl’s will host a national hiring event in St. Louis Oct. 13-15, hiring nearly 800 store associates for the holiday season. The retailer is recruiting for several open positions at its stores, including seasonal workers, with nearly 800 open positions in the St. Louis area. Candidates can receive a job offer the same day as their interview. Candidates interested in open positions in their field can apply today at career.kohls.com or text APPLY to 24508. See Kohl’s seasonal hiring schedules for more information here.

Kohl’s offers employees flexible hours, weekly paychecks and a 15% employee discount on merchandise, in addition to competitive wages and benefits. Occasionally there is a special event for partner shops with a 35% discount.
