More Jobs Slated For Clewiston Store

CLEWISTON, Fl --  Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. will host two job fairs in Clewiston in order to recruit 20 employees for its new Retail & Donation Center.  The job fairs will be held at the Clewiston Inn on consecutive Fridays, June 12 and June 19.  Both job fairs will be from 9:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Goodwill will hire approximately 20 employees for its new Clewiston Town Center store, which is scheduled to open in late July.  Available positions will include shift supervisors, cashiers, merchandise processors, donation attendants, salvage coordinators, and forklift drivers.  Both full and part-time positions will be available at the new store. 

"We�re looking for employees that have a passion for others and believe in our mission," says Bryan Avery, Goodwill District Manager.  "Our ideal employee has the skill sets to provide excellent customer service, can compete in a dynamic and constantly changing environment, and want to grow with our organization." 

Goodwill anticipates interviewing between 150-200 retail applicants during these job fairs.  Avery adds, �We hope to find plenty of employees who are as excited about the new store opening as we are.�

Goodwill will also conduct interviews for two positions with the agency�s Career Development Services department.  A full-time Employment Specialist position is available.  Preference will be given to applicants who have a background in vocational training, have worked with people with disabilities, and who have familiarity with the employment market in the Hendry/Glades region.

In addition, Goodwill seeks a Master Mentor, who will recruit, train, and supervise mentors for approximately 50 youth in Hendry, Glades, and Lee counties.  The qualified candidate should have some experience with volunteer/mentoring programs, as well as experience working with at-risk youth.

Applicants for all positions are advised to bring a recent resume, along with any materials necessary to display their qualifications.  Participants should be prepared to fill out a paper job application and speak with an interviewer for approximately 20 minutes.

Qualified applicants may be asked to participate in a second interview, to be held between June 15-24.
