More than four months before the biggest shopping holiday of the year, Kohl’s is already looking for seasonal employees.

Kohl’s is beginning to hire seasonal positions for the holidays during the last half of the year at 500 stores, including the Beavercreek and Centerville locations, a spokeswoman told the Dayton Daily News.

The department store will begin hiring season workers for stores, distribution centers and fulfillment operations in August and will continue through the holiday season, according to a statement.

Kohl’s is also hiring 3,000 workers to support in-store omnichannel process, according to the release.

Anyone interested in the jobs can apply on KohlsCareers.com/OurJobs.

The early hiring push comes during a time of low unemployment where economists say everyone who wants a job has one. It has been difficult for companies to find workers, which has sparked retailers to hire for major events earlier and offer more benefits.
