You may have always worked in the same field, so thinking about trying something new might make you feel nervous. But with some of these open jobs, you don't even need experience to start.

One company on a hiring hunt is Sears -- specifically, it's Home Services Department.

"We weren't expecting the explosion that we saw," Vice President of Sears Home services, Jimmy Aho said.

The department is looking to fill 1,000 technician jobs nationwide and a handful of jobs locally.

"We have about 15 to 20 immediate openings. Then we're looking to hire twenty-five to thirty additional technicians between now and peak season next summer," Aho continued.

Aho said with more people staying at home during the pandemic, it's causing wear and tear on appliances. Aho said you don't need any experience and if you get hired, you'll be trained.

"Pay varies depending on the skill set, depending on what you want to do with your career, we start in the Milwaukee area somewhere around $15 or $16 with no experience and we could range up to low to mid $30's," said Aho.

The demand for home deliveries saw a big spike during COVID-19 -- companies like UPS still need to fill a handful of jobs in Wisconsin, like personal vehicle drivers in Racine County.

"Our average daily volume is about 22 million packages per day and during our peak season we expect that to nearly double," said Danelle McCusker, VP of Human Resources at UPS.

The hours and pay depend on the positions, but McCusker says pay ranges from $14.50 an hour to up to $30 an hour.

Online retailer Amazon is also looking for workers. The company wants to fill more than 2,000 positions in Wisconsin during the holiday season.

"On top of an industry-leading $15 minimum wage, full-time and part-time regular jobs at Amazon come with comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance, 401K with 50 percent company match, and a network to succeed" Jen Crowcroft, Operations Regional PR Manager with Amazon said.

About 500 jobs are available in Wisconsin at Roundy's grocery stores which include Pick 'n Save, Metro Market, and Copps. No experience is needed to apply.

"The onset of COVID really affected our e-commerce business. So our pick-up and delivery business," said James Hyland, VP of Communications & Public Affairs for Roundy's Division.

"There are openings in the meat department. There are openings with stockers, with baggers, as front-end people, cashiers, etc. So it's really across the board," Hyland said.

Pay varies depending on the position.
