CADDO-BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Stores across the ArkLaTex are preparing for the busy holiday season by hiring more workers, and if you are looking for a seasonal job experts say you should start applying now.

Major retail corporations across the U.S. announced the beginning of the holiday hiring season. Target says it will hire more than 80,000 workers nationwide. Locally the Target store on Youree Drive in Shreveport expects to hire 120 new workers.

"The more guest coming in the more people we want to have available to make the shopping experience that much better for the guest," says Target Team Leader Brandon Wilkinson.

Among the other stores expected to do large amounts of hiring include Toy R Us, Wal-mart, Kohl's, and Best Buy.

If you want to snag one of these jobs, job experts suggest that you start applying now.

"Start applying today. Don't wait until thanksgiving, by then it's too late," says Jacque Lasaigne with the U.S Department of Labor. Lasaigne also points out that  many holiday jobs require flexibility and long hours. "They need you when they need you."

Job experts say that most of the hiring for the holiday season will be finished by the second week of November.
