Before we know it, the holiday shopping season will be here. Ellenton Premium Outlets is getting a head start on preparations.
On Thursday, the outlet mall will host a job fair for its retailers seeking seasonal positions. Some merchants will also be seeking to hire for full- and part-time non-seasonal positions.
Interested applicants will be able to apply between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Stores hiring include American Eagle Outfitters, Auntie Anne's Soft Pretzels, Corningware Corelle & More, Fossil, Guess Factory Store, J. Crew, Kitchen Collection, Levi's Outlet Store, Michael Kors, Nautica, Perfumania, Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Sketchers and White House | Black Market.
For a complete list of stores hiring visit Simon Guest Services in the food court. Interested applicants will need to visit the retailers individually.
The job fair is free and applicants should dress professionally. Employers will ask for resumes, so bring plenty of copies. Hiring retailers will be available to interview candidates and distribute applications on site.
Ellenton Premium Outlets is located at 5461 Factory Shops Boulevard in Ellenton.
