Kohl's Department Stores on Tuesday announced it expects to hire more than 40,000 holiday workers this year, up about 5 percent from last year due to store growth in 2011.

The company anticipates hiring an average of 35 part-time employees per store at its 1,127 stores in 49 states, according to a news release. In addition, the company expects to hire about 2,500 seasonal positions at distribution centers and more than 500 seasonal and full-time credit operations positions.

Seasonal employees can work up to 20 hours per week. Typical store jobs include unloading trucks, freight processing, stocking and cash register duties. Hiring began this month, and most jobs will be filled by mid–November. Holiday positions are also being filled at the company's distribution centers, where hiring began in August.

The company has locations in Crete, Highland, Homewood, Merrillville, Portage and Valpraiso. For more information, visit www.Kohlscareers.com .
