Need a job?

This morning, I made a few calls to the Human Resources departments and Managment teams at a few local retailers.... just wanted to see if there are any jobs out there.

I found that EVERY retailer I called has immediate openings. I plan to make more calls this afternoon, and you should too!

In our Park Lane Development:
Lane Bryant. Part time sales. $7.50 to $10.00 per hour.
Off 5th. All positions.
Nordstrom Rack. Part time sales.

NorthPark Center:
Banana Republic. Sales Associates, Sales Support, and Stock Positions. $8.00 to $9.00 for entry-level. Bonuses and Incentives and negotiable pay.
Gymboree. Sales Lead.

The moral of this story? There are JOBS out there! Here are a few tips:
1. Make a "cheat sheet" that includes the addresses and phone numbers of previous employers, as well as the correct spelling of managers' names. Also, note your prior pay rates. You'll be asked this information on EVERY application, and a cheat sheet will make the process easier.
2. Apply in-person whenever possible.
3. Dress PROFESSIONALLY to apply.
4. Ask to see a manager when you apply.
5. Follow up on your application within 48 hours of applying. Ask for an interview! Be enthusiastic and friendly.
