Still not fully staffed for this holiday season?

With the holidays rapidly approaching, there’s no time to waste. We’ve got some last-minute tips to help you find your last few hires, fast.

Compare your wages: The primary reason hourly workers are looking for holiday jobs is money, so it’s crucial to make sure your wages stack up. Check out our map of what rates job seekers are looking for across the country on page 6 of our Holiday Hiring Report below. If you really need to hire fast, consider upping your wages to entice workers who are on the fence.

Leverage referrals: Reach out to your former holiday employees and find out if they’d like to return. Ask your existing employees to spread the word that you’re hiring.

Perfect your job posts: Don’t let a low-quality job post hurt your chances of getting the right applicants. We’ve got a full checklist of tips on page 9 of the Holiday Hiring Report below. For example, did you know that including your logo on your job post can get you 150% more applicants?

Promote your job posts: Employers say online job boards are their top resource for seasonal recruiting. Create and promote your jobs postings on Snagajob to reach the largest pool of hourly workers.
