Apparel retailer Gap plans to hire more than 63,000 seasonal associates across the US at its Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Athleta stores, call centers and distribution centres for the 2014 holiday season.
Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Athleta are also coming together to hold a series of in-store hiring events in the company’s first-ever Holiday Hiring Blitz, taking place from October 13-18.
Gap Human Resources SVP Dan Henkle said: “To deliver the highest level of customer service at Gap Inc. brands during the busiest time of the year, we’re holding holiday hiring events across the country to attract and secure the best talent possible this holiday season.
“Whether our customers are shopping in our stores, online or on mobile devices, our top priority is providing a seamless experience during the craze of holiday shopping.”
Seasonal positions will vary from serving the many customers on the selling floor at Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Athleta stores, to handling the high volume of calls at the call centers and coordinating shipments from the distribution centers to stores and directly to customers who’ve purchased via mobile devices, online or in store.
