RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- Nevada is expected to add over 4,000 seasonal jobs for the holiday season, according to the Retail Association of Nevada.

Last year, the state added 4,100 retail positions between September and December, and the same amount is said to be added this year, the Association says. The Association warns, however, that competition for available positions is expected to be as tough as it was during the last several holiday seasons, as there are 164,100 unemployed Nevadans, which is only slightly lower than levels reported around this time in 2011.

Several national retailers with locations in Nevada have
publicly announced major seasonal hiring plans:

Amazon – 1,250 estimated seasonal hires at the fulfillment
center in Fernley, Nevada

Macy’s– 900 estimated seasonal hires statewide

Target – 900 estimated seasonal hires statewide

Walmart – 500 estimated seasonal hires statewide

Kohl’s Department Stores – 490 estimated seasonal hires

Toys ‘R’ Us – 250 estimated seasonal hires at the McCarran
