The world's largest retailer plans to increase its holiday crew by 10% this year, bringing on 55,000 seasonal workers to handle the Christmas rush.
That averages out to about 13 more workers per store.
In addition to these seasonal workers, the company also said it plans to transition 35,000 current employees from temp jobs to part-time, and another 35,000 workers from part-time to full-time status.
The 10% bump in Christmastime hiring comes despite a disappointing year for Wal-Mart (Fortune 500). Same-store sales fell in the first half of the year, and the company cut sales forecasts for the rest of the year. ,
