TEXOMA---- With the holiday season right around the corner, the "Now Hiring" signs are starting to pop up across Texoma.

"It seems like the economy is a little bit happier this year than maybe it has been in years past and I think retailers are expecting a good Christmas season this year," Workforce Solutions Texoma's Bob Rhoden said.

A good Christmas season meansa lot of holiday spending, so many Texomans are looking for a seasonal job to keep up with the added expenses.

Walmart  plans to fill about 55,000 positions nationwide. Hiring managers said about 90 of these jobs are up for grabs at the stores in Grayson and Bryan County. You can apply online or inside the store.

In Sherman, JC Penney said they plans to fill about 25 positions. Managers said you can apply in the store at the hiring kiosk or online.

Best Buy said they're hiring for every potion. You can apply online.

Belk, Target, Old Navy, Cracker Barrel and Academy also all have openings.

April Donovan of Snelling Staffing Services said it's also important to look for positions outside of retail.

"Towards the end of the year a lot of things happen in local industry," Donovan said. "In some cases, there may be product that has already been sold that needs to be made before the end of the year and companies will pile on extra help during the end of the year to put that product out and fulfill their orders."

Whether you're looking for a position in retail or something a little less traditional, job placement specialists say it's important to apply early.

"The holiday season seems to back up a little early and if you wait until the last minute then there is a relatively good chance that a lot of the companies will have made some of their hiring decisions," Rhoden said.
