Holidays Jobs

Holiday Job Overview

Holiday jobs are positions only available during special times of year, such as Christmas, New Year and Halloween. During holiday periods, businesses expect spikes in product exposure, and sales at retail outlets typically rise. As a result, companies need additional staff and employees. Businesses that support the retail industry, such as post offices and shipping companies, may also boost their hiring efforts during the holidays.

In most cases, holiday jobs are part-time or temporary. As the holiday winds down, so does the number of employees. The demand for holiday jobs tends to increase year after year, depending on performance of the national economy.

Holiday Job Education Requirements

Holiday jobs education requirements correlate with the type of position offered. Seasonal or holiday sales are great for high school candidates and individuals without previous job experience. The same can be said for hospitality positions and general vacancies. Technical or managerial positions may require a college degree in a particular field or industry. For the majority of holiday jobs, individuals with some college or minimal job experience can fill such positions. Businesses are very accommodating to students and professionals looking to supplement their income, providing flexible hours.

Holiday Job Market

The holiday jobs market is favorable for those seeking part time seasonal jobs or immediate employment. Industries known for hiring holiday staff include retail, food, and hospitality. Large companies such as Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Universal Studios and the United States Post Office also tend to offer such jobs. Holiday job positions for small businesses may require multiple responsibilities. On the other hand, large companies may offer positions that focus on single, repetitive tasks. Students and individuals who are looking to gain work experience in a new industry can benefit from the demanding holiday jobs market.

Holiday Job Salary Information

Contrary to popular belief, holiday jobs pay relatively well due to the requirement to work during vacation periods. Recruiters can make as much as $25.00/hr, while customer service representatives can expect to bring in $12.00/hr. Bonuses are common for holiday jobs, but vary depending on company policy. Tip-earning employees may find extra compensation from vacationers and out-of-town visitors. This type of extra compensation is common for positions in the hospitality industry. Apart from higher pay and bonuses, companies may offer attractive incentives such as discounts and coupons for their employees. Such incentives can extend to a candidate’s family members, and may also be valid long after the job has ended.
