The weather is turning colder, but the jobs outlook is getting a bit warmer here in Northeast Ohio.

Stores are getting ready to hire their seasonal workers, and at least one big box store is looking for a lot of new faces.

Walmart will hire 55,000 seasonal associates and will transition more than 35,000 associates from temporary to part-time and another 35,000 associates from part-time to full-time.

"The Christmas season is a busy time for everyone and we know that millions of customers are counting on Walmart to help with great deals, low prices and one-stop shopping convenience," said Gisel Ruiz, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer of Walmart. "We are determined to help customers and associates provide their families a memorable and affordable Christmas."
