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
@CyclopsCaveman I worked at a grocery store for five years and a customer asked me one time towards the end of October if the company was gonna be getting any seasonal help.
I just laughed in their face.
@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
