Posted on October 9, 2012
Toy giant Toys’R’Us said last week it is hiring for many Boston sales jobs.
The news comes on the heels of the big announcement that the toy retailer will be hiring 45,000 nationwide for it’s seasonal popup stores.
The employees will work at stores and distribution centers across America.
This number represents an increase from the approximately 40,000 seasonal workers hired last year, driven in part by the addition of positions in ToysRUs stores designated specifically to help fulfill orders resulting from the companys newly enhanced omnichannel offerings such as Buy Online, Pick Up In Store, Ship from Store and Ship to Store.
Toys’R’Us said these seasonal jobs have the potential to become full-time positions for high-performing employees. Last year, approximately 15 percent of the holiday workforce retained positions with ToysRUs after the season ended.
Hiring for positions at ToysRUs stores begins this week and will continue through December. Positions range from managerial roles and sales associates to inventory replenishment employees and omnichannel teams. In addition, jobs are available at the companys 10 distribution centers, which began hiring in July and will also continue through December.
