Dollar Tree plans to hire over 25,000 workers this holiday season

Dollar Tree Inc DLTR.O said on Monday it planned to hire more than 25,000 workers at its stores and distribution centers this holiday season, as it prepares for what is typically a period of higher sales.

The U.S. dollar-store chain, which also owns Family Dollar, is looking to fill full-time and part-time positions, including store managers, cashiers and seasonal holiday help as part of its yearly hiring event.

Chesapeake, Virginia-based Dollar Store also said it would hire order fillers, equipment operators and warehouse associates at its distribution centers, as a COVID-19-driven increase in online shopping had prompted retailers to hire such workers.

Dollar Store did not disclose such jobs in its 2019 holiday hiring plan.

Retail giant Target Corp TGT.N last month said it would double its staff for contactless services and hire more seasonal employees for distribution centers this holiday season.

Dollar Store also said it would conduct phone interviews this year to practice social distancing.
