Gallery Furniture isn't ignoring the recession, but just isn't participating. Business continues to be good and there's a need for new employees.
That's why several hundred people came to the North Freeway store Thursday for the first Job Fair of 2009 at Gallery Furniture.
Applications were being taken for Sales Associates, Warehouse staff, Internet Sales and Marketing staff, and sales trainers.
Job seekers were given details about the jobs available when they first arrived and then filled out applications.
No hiring decisions were made today. After the applications are reviewed, the second stage of the process will begin with a number of job seekers called back for a second interview.
After that, Gallery Furniture will have several dozen new employees and will be able to delight even more customers with great furniture, great prices, great service, and do it all TODAY!
