Retailers are expecting holiday sales to reach new heights this year and, in turn, have been adding more employees to their seasonal workforce. Several projections from industry experts and analysts point to a positive outlook for the 2014 holiday season. Take, for example, the National Retail Federation (NRF), which expects sales to increase 4.1% over 2013. To keep pace with increased demand, the NRF expects retailers to add between 725,000 and 800,000 seasonal jobs. In 2013, more than 768,000 seasonal jobs were added.
