New York (KTNV) -- Are you looking for a job? You may want to check your local Walmart or Target stores.

The world's largest retailer said it's bringing on 55,000 seasonal workers to handle the Christmas rush this year.

That's up from 50,000 last year.

With more than 4,000 locations across the country, that averages out to about 13 more workers per store.

To compare with another major retailer, Target said it's actually hiring fewer holiday workers this year.

Target plans to hire about 70,000 employees, which is down from 88,000 seasonal workers last year.
