New York -

Many retail giants are already hiring for the holiday season.

Tuesday, Toys "R" Us announced it needs 45,000 workers for the holidays in stores and distribution centers nationwide.

Kohl's is hiring 53,000 workers this season.

Wal-mart is looking for 55,000 full-time and 35,000 part time seasonal workers.

Target also needs 70,000 employees for the shopping season.

Agencies like Spartan Staffing say it's not even Halloween, but now is the best time for job seekers to finalize resumes, apply for seasonal jobs and expect immediate callbacks.

"Just like anyone else, when the holiday seasons get here everyone gets geared up," said Kristen Beddingfield with Spartan Staffing.

The agency adds many times seasonal jobs become full-time ones. About 15 percent of last year's seasonal workers were hired full-time.

Spartan Staffing tells 7 On Your Side it's still early, and you should hear more companies announcing retail and warehouse job openings soon.

The Amazon Fulfillment Center in Spartanburg hasn't released its holiday job openings yet. But Amazon is currently hiring warehouse associates in Spartanburg County.

SMX Recruiting is handling staffing.

    Dozens of drivers have filed complaints with the South Carolina Department of Transportation over loose gravel along a stretch of I-85. Officials said the complaints, which topped out at between 6 and 8 per day last week, stem from gravel that's damaged vehicles between Highway 14 and 129, where crews are working on a two-year-long resurfacing project.
