Holiday Hiring Already Underway

Companies like JCPenney, UPS and Target have already started hiring seasonal workers.

In Manchester, it’s time to start thinking about the holidays. The push to find seasonal workers is already in overdrive.

JC Penney is hiring supply chain associates at the Manchester facility. They planned to hire about 100 people Tuesday.

"We're already getting Christmas trees, believe it or not, that were sending to our store partners," said Cheri Musheno, general manager at JCPenney Manchester Facility.

Rishard Chever from Hartford was hoping to snag a job.

"I worked stock at the other JCPenney and I did receiving and shipping and stuff like that, so something,” he said. “Or data entry I went to school for computer engineering."

Quran Anderson also wanted to get hired on the spot.

“I just don't have a job and I need one,” said Anderson. “I've got bills to pay and stuff like that."
