Several companies including Walmart, Target and UPS have already announced plans to boost their seasonal staff in order to prepare for another bustling holiday filled with online and in-person shopping.
This holiday season, although set against an uncertain economic environment, is expected to be busy, and retailers are trying to prepare early especially with some deals kicking off in October.
Many companies have trimmed down their hiring plans this year but have promised to give current staff members a chance to take on extra shifts in order to boost their earning potential.

Companies hiring and what they are offering current and new employees:
The flower company is seeking more than 8,000 seasonal and year-round associates across the nation, but the majority of the roles will be throughout Illinois, Ohio, and Oregon.
New hires will fill roles within production, gift assembly, distribution and operational support, according to the company. There will also be remote contact center positions available.
The company touted that it's offering "robust incentives and perks" such as competitive wages, flexible schedules and an employee discount.
However, it didn't specify what that wage is.
Michaels is seeking 15,000 people for positions across its stores and distribution centers in North America.
Michaels' Chief Operating Officer Joe Venezia told FOX Business that the company deliberately decreased the number of seasonal hires this year in order to increase the number of hours available for seasonal employees.
