OMAHA, Nebraska — As the holiday season approaches, businesses begin hiring seasonal workers.
Seasonal jobs are highly regarded by the metro area workers with whom we spoke.
Former seasonal worker Braxton Crowder stated, “I believe it’s necessary to constantly have a side hustle, so I prefer seasonal work.” Something that does not require a long-term commitment, but may be done during the holidays for extra cash.
When I was that age, my parents actively encouraged me to acquire a job as soon as possible, stated a mother. It teaches monetary worth and responsibility.
However, there is a countrywide labor deficit.
“I believe that in the current job market, individuals are yearning for higher-paying jobs,” stated Crowder. McDonald’s pays its employees $16 per hour, which is more than some people earn with a college degree.
Nebraska Furniture Mart is one local business that claims it has no difficulty hiring year-round or seasonal workers.
Without a sure, the economy is hard, said Rick Johnosn, talent acquisition manager for the organization. “We’ve been in business for 85 years, and in that time we’ve never had a single layoff. In uncertain times, I believe that speaks volumes about the current employment environment.”
Currently, NFM has fifty seasonal job openings available. According to them, bonuses and growth possibilities help attract personnel.
Indeed lists over 500 seasonal employment openings in Omaha.
