The Westfield Group will host two job fairs at its South Shore and Sunrise malls to fill the demand for more than 500 seasonal and permanent employees as the holiday shopping season approaches.

The first job fair will be on Wednesday from noon to 7 p.m. at Westfield South Shore, 1701 Sunrise Hwy. in Bay Shore, near the Lord & Taylor court.

The second will be held Oct. 22 at Westfield Sunrise, 1 Sunrise Mall in Massapequa, near the lower level Macy's court.

Dozens of stores, including Lord & Taylor, Sephora and White House Black Market, will be accepting applications to cover their extended seasonal hours.

In addition to seasonal positions, many new retailers will be looking for permanent, year-round employees. New Westfield South Shore mall tenant The Cheesecake Factory plans to hire 260 full- and part-time workers.
