Businesses start hiring for the holidays

It’s still hitting triple digits outside, but it’s time to think about Christmas.

The Gaylord Texan resort in Grapevine is already accepting applications online for its annual ICE show. Posted openings on its web site include box office agent and attendants for the attraction and retail operations. Besides seasonal, the site also lists numerous other jobs in Grapevine, ranging from culinary to management and bellmen.

Tax services typically start hiring around this type of year for the peak season. Liberty Tax Service is having an open house and job fair, 5 p.m.-7 p.m., Aug. 22 at 2325 S. Stemmons Freeway, # 303, in Lewisville. The company said it expects to hire seasonal 40,000 tax preparers and other positions for its 3,500 U.S. offices.

GameStop expects to hire 19,000 people for the holidays – about equal to last year’s hiring, says Mike Buskey, senior vice president-human resources for the Grapevine retailer. That’s 3-5 people per store.

“There are a number of key releases that are coming out this fall,” Buskey says. “They could be some of the biggest title releases we’ve ever had.”

Interested? Drop by a store to inquire early to mid-September, Buskey says. Hiring starts in early October for the retail stores.

GameStop also expects to hire 100 people each in its Grapevine distribution and refurbishment centers, and corporate office.

Applicants can go online or apply in person at those locations, Buskey said.

GameStop expects to post the seasonal jobs in late August on its site.

Buskey notes GameStop is always looking for employees.

“If there’s somebody looking for an opportunity, we’d love to see them tomorrow,” he said.
