With the holiday season coming up, more stores will be hiring to fill positions, which is great news for many families. The Ocean County mall posted that JC Penney is having a national hiring event next week - Monday 10/26 - Thursday 10/29. I did a quick search on their job site to find out what positions are available.

  • Asset Protection Associate
  • Merchandise Execution Associate
  • Home Commission Associate
  • Visual Merchandiser
  • Merchandise Assistant
  • Seasonal Cashier
  • Seasonal Fine Jewelry Commission Associate
  • Hair Stylist
  • Seasonal Operations Associate
  • Sephora Beauty Advisor

It looks like there is a wide range of positions available - some are full time and some are part-time. So if you're looking to make some extra cash for the holidays, this could be an option.

The hiring event notice on the Ocean County Mall's website says that phone and in-person interviews are available, or you can apply online.

I think it's great that local places are hiring again. Hopefully, a busy holiday season will start to get everyone back on track. I am crossing my fingers for more jobs to be available for people soon.
