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

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

“Every year we go out, we try to find some people who’re looking for some extra cash for the holidays or simply just want to work at Cabela’s,” said Tommy O’Brien, assistant general manager at the Hazelwood Cabela’s store. 

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

“Once the application is in, it gets screened by our HR manager, Megan, and then moves onto the next process, which is interviewing,” he said. “After the interviewing process, we’ll make an offer right here, and you can walk away with a job.” 

The outdoor retail store is not the only one hankering for help. Other companies holding 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’re starting to see an increase in applicants since COVID has slowed down a bit. Hoping we don’t have an uptick again this year,” O’Brien said. “Looking good so far. But yeah, it’s looking up. More applicants. More people inquiring about it.”

Kohl’s will hold a national hiring event in St. Louis on Oct. 13-15, hiring nearly 800 store associates for the holiday season. The retailer is recruiting for multiple open positions across the stores, including seasonal associates, with nearly 800 open roles in the St. Louis area. Candidates can receive a job offer on the same day of their interview. Candidates interested in viewing open positions in their area can apply today at careers.kohls.com or by texting APPLY to 24508.
