Target is preparing for the holidays.

The retailer announced plans to hire 100,000 seasonal workers. The employees will be spread out across stores and supply chain facilities, the company said.

Target hired 100,000 people for seasonal jobs last year as well, Reuters reported.

“From offering more stable and flexible schedules that help provide desired hours to investing in training opportunities, we’re giving team members the tools they need to have a successful and rewarding season,” Target stated.

Job-seekers can apply at Target’s seasonal jobs website.

Target’s hiring plans exceed its main competitor, Walmart.

Walmart announced on Sept. 21 that it plans to hire 40,000 seasonal workers this holiday season.

CNN and the AP reported that companies expect a slower holiday season this year due to inflation.
