Are you still looking to make some extra cash to get you through the upcoming holidays? Retailers and shipping companies are still looking to hire thousands of seasonal workers in metro Atlanta, around Georgia and across the country. The good news is that despite signs of slower retail sales last month, the employers haven’t altered overall hiring plans for the remainder of the year, according to the outplacement consulting firm Challenger Gray & Christmas. The firm expects seasonal hiring to reach 695,970 this year, up 34 percent from 518,000 last year. While the list includes major companies, don’t overlook other employers, both midsize and small, that expect a sharp increase in business around the holidays as shoppers take a break between stops. Restaurants and entertainment businesses are also looking to hire. Check out our gallery of the companies that are hiring and the number of jobs that need to be filled. What’s great is most of the companies have multiple locations across metro Atlanta. Additional hiring information, including pay and benefits, if any, generally is available on the companies’ websites.

Who is hiring for the holidays

Hiring for the holidays

The Dart House was built by William Dart, son of Brunswick's co-founder Urbanas Dart, over 137 years ago. The two-story house was constructed in Folk Victorian style using milled cypress and pine, and has survived numerous hurricanes. The Dart family maintained ownership until 1983, when the house was sold to Golden Isle-Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, which undertook an extensive rehabilitation at the time of purchase.
 
The Chamber of Commerce relocated to newer offices in 2013, leaving the Dart House empty and susceptible to deferred maintenance and deterioration. In Sept. 2014, the Chamber entered an agreement with the Historic Brunswick Foundation to allow the Foundation five months to raise $300,000 so that it may purchase the property. The Foundation set a goal to raise $500,000 in order to acquire the building and meet any restoration and maintenance needs. Failure to raise the acquisition funds may result in demolition of this important house.
