A major toy retailer is hosting a nationwide hiring day on Monday for the first time in its history.

Toys "R" Us seeks to fill part-time positions across the country ahead of the holiday season including those in and around Atlanta.

During the hiring events, interested applicants will have the chance to learn more about working at Toys "R" Us during the holiday season and take part in on-the-spot job interviews.

The goal is to have stores fully staffed for the holiday season.

Applicants can also get a head start on the process by visiting the company's holiday jobs website.

In addition to the stores, the company is also hiring at the McDonough Distribution Center in Henry County.
