LOUISVILLE, Ky.—Retailers continue to hire new staff with unique events designed to maximum applications and minimize contact.
For example, Thorntons announced a “Drive Thru Hiring Event—Open Interviews” on its Facebook page to advertise for 50 full-time and part-time in-store positions. Today, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thorntons will host the drive-thru hiring event with interviews for guest service representatives and managers.
Interviews will take place at 13314 Shelbyville Road, Louisville. “Text THORNTONS to 97211 to connect with a recruiter for an interview today!” the c-store chain said on its Facebook page.
Last year, Taco Bell held nearly 600 hiring parties with free food, festivities and on-the-spot job interviews.
This year, merchants are turning to online job fairs to fill open positions. The virtual hiring events include application submissions, screening programs and video interviews. For more on how to find workers in today’s environment, read “Help Wanted” from the September 2020 issue of NACS magazine.
