Walmart-Holiday Hiring Walmart to offer extra holiday hours for current workers

NEW YORK (AP) - Walmart won't be doing large-scale holiday hiring at its stores this year. Instead, like last year, it will offer extra hours to its current workers.

The nation's largest private employer says, however, that it will be taking on more temporary workers at its distribution centers. But it's not giving a number yet for its planned holiday hires at the centers.

So far, the retailers have detailed mixed hiring plans for the holidays.
