seasonal positions basically exist so companies can fill labor positions during high traffic periods for only the time necessary to train and have people there during the high traffic periods. they're essentially a way for them to get around having a full, well paid staff year round because its cheaper to run on a skeleton during the rest of the year, and hire up untrained or low skill work for peanuts during busy periods. this is specifically a retail related phenomenon, please don't jump at me about seasonal acting gigs for haunted houses and theme parks
@Ethancdavenport yeah grocery stores are especially bad about this. they almost never hire for seasonal stuff, and if they do its probably just low-level employees like baggers
@Ethancdavenport oh you work in the deli? good luck adding handing out roasts to all the normal tasks you already do. no we're not going to add people for the increased demand during the season
