(KCEN) -- Toys R Us is hiring big time for the holiday season.
The toy store giant says the added workers will be used in stores and various distribution centers across the country.
Last year they hired 40,000 temporary employees to help with holiday sales.
The additional workers are needed to help manage the company's newly expanded on-line order and delivery service.
Last year about 15 percent of the holiday workforce retained positions after the season ended.
