Chain stores plan to recruit a total of 300 people for the busy festive season with the promise that dozens will be given permanent positions.
Hundreds of jobs are available at 20 stores at Glasgow Fort Shopping Park where a jobs fair will take place next Tuesday between 10am and 5pm. At last year's event more than 1200 jobseekers applied for 240 posts.
Asda Living, TK Maxx, HMV and Smyths Toys Superstore are among the stores which will need extra staff as they gear up for Christmas and the New Year sales.
The mall attracts thousands of shoppers who spend about £1million per day in the run-up to Christmas.
The annual jobs fair at Glasgow Fort is organised by the Glasgow Regeneration Agency and JobCentre Plus.
David Cassidy of JobCentre Plus said: "Last year, one in five people who came to the fair secured employment and, although the focus is on temporary positions, some could lead to permanent jobs."
A mall spokeswoman said the recruits will start work in the coming weeks and continue into the new year, and that at least 60 are likely to be kept on.
She added: "More than 20% of the positions are likely to be permanent."
More than 200,000 shoppers visit Glasgow Fort each week and last year traders made more than £60m during the Christmas rush.
The festive season is the busiest time of the year for the park's 90 stores and stalls which employ more than 1500 staff, most from the East End.
Fort manager Phil Goodman said: "The jobs fair is a great opportunity for people to find out what is available in the stores and meet the managers face to face."
The jobs boost comes just three weeks after a multi-million pound expansion plan for Glasgow Fort, which will create another 200 new posts, was announced.
Work has already started on an eight-screen Vue cinema and five eateries.
The £9m leisure development will also provide 250 construction jobs and will open in the summer.
