The new Bealls Outlet will host its Grand Opening Oct. 20 according to Project Manager Carinda Johnwell and Minden store manager David Rico. The duo are set up in front of the store location in the River South Commons shopping center on South Drive. They are hosting an on-site job fair 10 a.m.-3 p.m. today – Thursday this week and next week. Interviews last approximately 15 minutes and they are hiring all positions from supervisors to part time.
“We’re looking to hire 35-40 people in the next two weeks,” Rico said.
Most are part time positions, but will work full time during the grand opening process according to Rico. There will also be full time hours available during the Christmas season Johnwell said.
“We are looking at managers as well. As of right now we have potentially found one that is from this area,” Johnwell said. “We try to hire everybody locally.”
The store is considered an “off-price” retailer and sells everything for the family from shoes to clothing, food, children’s clothing and housewares.
“We don’t sell the same thing all the time but we do carry name brands. We have Nike, Adidas and stuff like that,” Riko said.
“We are looking for great smiling faces, great personalities. Our company is known for its customer service,” Johnwell added.
“In the retail world it is a good environment to work in,” Rico said. “If you have customer service experience and that is what you want to work in then this is a good, fast growing company to work for.”
Johnwell and Rico stressed no experience is necessary to apply and they offer training. Benefits are available for full time employees and even part time staff qualify for vacation, sick and holiday pay after six months employment.
