SPAIN, 2016-Jun-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour increases its workforce by taking on 6,000 people to reinforce the peak working periods that occur during the summer. Ninety percent of those taken on will join hypermarket staff and the rest will fill positions in supermarkets and other company subsidiaries such as travel agencies, service stations and financial services. The profiles vary although the majority of applicants are young people looking for their first job and students.
The new employees will join all sectors directly related with customer service: check-outs, restocking, fresh product sales (butcher, cold cuts, fruits, bakery and fish counter) and vendor-assisted sale sections such as technology or domestic appliances, among others.
The candidates selected must be clearly sales and customer oriented, and possess the capacity to work as part of a team. The profile of the people Carrefour is hiring is very varied, although young first-time job seekers predominate. Those interested can send their CVs via www.carrefour.es/trabaja en carrefour stating the cities and stores they are interested in.
