Amazon to Add 120000 Holiday Workers, Same as Last Year

United Parcel Service Inc. has said it would hire 95,000 workers, also on par with past year, aiming to increase operational efficiency with the same number of workers even as the number of packages it ships grows.

Target said it would hire 100,000 temp workers, banking on its successful turnaround efforts, which saw it report its first rise in comp sales in more than a year in August.

Hiring events take place from 10 a.m.to 6 p.m. each day.
