FedEx expects to add more than 50,000 employees this winter to help get packages where they need to go.

UPS wants to hire about 95,000 season workers.

Target plans to stock its stores with people, too - adding about 100,000 jobs.

Amazon, GAP and Toys 'R' Us are also hiring season workers.

The temporary job could even become permanent; UPS says over the past three years, 35% of seasonal workers got a full-time gig.

FedEx also says many of the 50,000 jobs added last year became full-time job opportunities.

If you need a job, go online. Search using key phrases like 'season jobs' or 'holiday hiring near me'.
