Shopko: Now Hiring for the Holidays!
Open interviews for part-time, seasonal employees at all Shopko stores
(Green Bay, Wis., October 10, 2016) – It’s no secret that holiday shopping can be both challenging and overwhelming to consumers—long on lines, short on patience. Shopko is determined to remove any frustrations associated with holiday gifting and will be hiring seasonal employees in order to continue providing consumers with the seamless shopping experience they’re used to.
The retailer will be hiring part-time, seasonal staff and will be holding open interviews at all Shopko locations on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016, during the hours of 12-7 p.m., as well as Monday, Oct. 17, 2016, between 3-7 p.m. Available positions include apparel and general merchandise sales floor teammates and cashiers.
This call for new employees comes as retail forecasters expect an increase in sales from Thanksgiving through the New Year. According to Deloitte's retail and distribution practice, U.S retailers are expected see a modest increase in sales over the holiday season of $1 trillion, a 3.6 percent to 4 percent increase when compared to last year's holiday season.
“The holiday season is, not surprisingly, an incredibly busy time for both retailers and our customers, and we are committed to alleviating any stress that comes with the holiday shopping experience,” said Peter McMahon, CEO of Shopko. “In adding to our already exceptional staff, we hope to maintain Shopko’s level of excellence in service delivery our customers expect and deserve during the holidays.”
Shopko has attracted talented, resourceful, and customer-centric leaders and teammates throughout the years, and is proud to hire those aligned with the brand’s strategies and values. Through working individually, as well as in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment, Shopko’s associates deliver each day on providing exceptional customer service.
