Top 10 Retail Employers

By November 16, 2012

Retail StoreAre you interested in a job in retail? Retailers are hiring, both for holiday seasonal jobs and for long-term positions.

In fact, even a short-term seasonal job can turn into a permanent position. Companies often use seasonal hiring as a way to evaluate employees and at least some of the workers hired for the holidays may have the opportunity to stay on.

Indeed.com reports that retail hiring is up significantly this year:

  • Retail job postings have increased 15% since January 2012
  • Retail job postings increased steadily each of the last three months as employers ramped up seasonal hiring.
  • Retail job postings increased 6% in October, the largest monthly increase of any industry.
