Retailers and shippers planning to hire more than 650,000 seasonal employees this holiday season, so the Better Business Bureau advises job seekers to polish up their resumes.

Agency investigator Shellie Kreter tells The Big Z you should research potential employers and apply right away, but be wary of any that ask you for money in order to apply.

She suggests you try to work where you shop, dress neatly and be prepared for an interview when applying, and be flexible. As a seasonal employee, you can expect to work long, sometimes inconvenient hours, possibly including Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.
