The Disney Store is spreading a little of its magic to job seekers looking to earn some extra cash this holiday season.

The company plans to hire about 1,500 part-time workers to fill seasonal sales associate positions, reports Babble, which is owned by The Walt Disney Co.

Work benefits include a sweet 20% discount on most merchandise.

Sales associates are responsible for helping customers throughout the store and ringing up purchases, among other duties. According to Babble, these workers will be required to be available for at least two weekday shifts, in addition to weekends.

Pay starts at $10 an hour, depending on location.

Various stores across the country are hiring now. This seasonal position will last through mid-January.

To score this gig, you’ll need to be at least 18 with a high school diploma or equivalent and legally verified to work in the United States. You should also be able to climb a ladder and lift up to 45 pounds, according to one local job description for this position.

Previous retail experience is a plus.
