The holiday season is quickly approaching, and that means many local retailers and businesses in Grand Junction will be adding temporary workers to their staff over the next several weeks.

Many people are looking to make some extra cash during the holiday season -- in some cases to pay off all those credit cards being used for Christmas shopping. Others, perhaps, are doing it simply to get by and to be able to pay the bills they already have.

Regardless of the motivation, there are seasonal positions opening up in Grand Junction, so if you are wanting to nab one of them, the time to act is now. Here are some employers on  that are currently hiring seasonal workers.


Target is looking for seasonal team members with a friendly attitude and attention to detail. They need people to "keep the store looking great, clean and organized, and assist guests as they search for that perfect gift."


Cabela's is looking to add some folks for the holidays in various departments including warehouse, firearms, cashiers, customer service, and sales outfitters. They do a drug test, and weekend availability is required.


The holidays are a busy, busy time for delivery drivers and workers, and the big brown trucks of UPS will be in full force.  The website says they are hiring nationwide for the holiday season, but offer no details specifically about Grand Junction.
