SHREVEPORT, La. -

The holiday season means hiring seasonal help. Several of the big box stores already look to bring in help for the rest of the year.

According to the Louisiana Workforce Commission website, more than 600 season jobs have been posted. More than 50 of them are in the Shreveport-Bossier-Natchitoches area.

These are jobs that are listed on this particular website with seasonal in the title or in the description. Those listing their seasonal openings on the website include Academy, Shane's Restaurant and the United States Postal Service.

Not every retailer uses this website to post its job listings, including The Enchanted Garden. They plan to bring on at least three or five extra sets of hands to help with the volume this Christmas season.

"I like everyone to know how to do everything—help customers, wrap merchandise, ring up," said owner Deb Cockrell. "We all try to do everything. That's why a lot of people who have worked here before come back. They already know what to do."

If you are interested in picking up some seasonal work, look at the Louisiana Workforce Commission website. As well as maybe dropping by a retailer you're interested in working with this holiday season.
