Las Cruces Companies Hiring For The Holidays

Las Cruces – If you're looking for work and don't mind taking a temporary job, the holiday season presents an opportunity.

Many companies in the Las Cruces area are bringing on extra help before Christmas shopping. With the holiday season seeming to start sooner and sooner each year, many businesses have already started the process or soon will.

In La Mesa, Stahmanns Country Store manager Eva Valerio says her company is doing seasonal hiring for its candy plant and retail stores. In Las Cruces, the JCPenney store at the Mesilla Valley Mall starts accepting applications this week.

Across the country, retailers will add between 550,000 and 650,000 jobs this holiday season.
