Now is the time to get hired for holiday work at Target.

The jobs include roles for picking, packing and shipping customer orders from the company's Maryland warehouses.

It's all part of a plan to hire about 100,000 seasonal Target workers across the country, plus 4,500 for distribution centers and fulfillment facilities.

Amazon said it employs more than 125,000 full-time workers at more than 75 fulfillment warehouses across the US - a number likely to be updated when the company reports third-quarter earnings in the coming weeks.

As a result, several US retailers, including Macy's Inc and Kohl's Corp, have been focusing on their online businesses and have ramped up hiring seasonal workers to man their distribution centers that support online operations.

"We prepare year round for the holidays and we're excited to hire for over 120,000 positions this season to help delight our customers", said Dave Clark, Amazon's senior vice president of global customer fulfillment, in a statement.

The Minneapolis-based chain will host hiring events this Friday through Sunday at all Target stores throughout the Chicago area to hire 2,500 seasonal workers for area stores.

Overall, U.S. retailers are expected to hire 25,000 fewer workers this holiday season, the NRF said, as current staffing levels are strong, and as companies such as Wal-Mart offer existing workers more hours rather than adding temp workers.
