Kohl’s hiring for retail jobs in Connecticut

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

With the opening of several new stores Kohl’s has announced it will be recruiting heavily for retail jobs in Connecticut, among other locations.

The retail giant said ?12 new stores in 10 states, including Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington. Of the 12 new locations, 11 are small format stores with approximately 64,000 square feet or less of retail space.

The store won’t just be opening new brick-and-mortar stores, but will also be remodeling existing store base by remodeling approximately 50 stores this year.

Over the last six years, more than half of Kohl’s store base has been remodeled or newly built.

The move is expected to create about 1,500 jobs nationwide, which will be a nice boost to the economy.

Kohl’s said new stores will feature:

Updated check-out station
Newly designed shopping carts and strollers
Innovative fixtures in cosmetics
Upgraded fitting rooms throughout the store with fitting room lounges in Misses and Juniors
Expanded customer service area relocated to the front of the store in all locations
In-store Kohl’s Kiosks
Electronic signs in all departments
Wi-Fi throughout the store

Nine of the new stores opening this week were built according to a prototype that received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification at the Gold level from the U.S. Green Building Council. Characteristics of stores built to LEED guidelines, which provide best practices for the design, construction and operation for high-performance green buildings, include: recycled and regionally sourced building materials; water-efficient landscaping and plumbing fixtures and the use of ENERGY STAR-rated roofs that reduce each building’s energy demand.

“We are pleased to be in a position to open 12 new stores, create approximately 1,500 jobs and invest in our existing store base by remodeling dozens of locations,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “While shoppers continue to be selective about their purchases, value is an important part of why customers choose Kohl’s. So, we continue to offer quality national and exclusive brand merchandise in a fresh and exciting shopping environment, at an exceptional value.”

Connecticut Retail Jobs Harder to Get this Season

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

While seasonal jobs will be fewer this year than last because of the current economic downtrend, those seeking seasonal Connecticut retail jobs may have some help.

The National Retail Federation estimates that holiday retail spending will increase by a minor 2.2 percent, the slowest rate of growth in six years. In preparation for a slew of job seekers and not as many jobs, the Connecticut Better Business Bureau has some tips for job seekers.

First, it’s important to start your search as soon as possible, as people seeking holiday jobs will need to look harder this year than in past years to find a good position, because many jobs are being lost. It may help to identify companies you’d like to work for and which positions your skills are best suited for, and then begin sending in applications.
