EMPLOYMENT: Goodwill of Detroit is hiring for their new Canton Store

Goodwill of Detroit is hiring for their new Canton Store that is opening in August, 2010

Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit expects its flagship store to generate approximately $1 million in revenue in the first year. Proceeds from the store will fund local Goodwill employment training, education and support programs. Featuring upscale boutique clothing and other donated goods, the store will be modeled after the nation’s two most successful Goodwill retail locations in Indianapolis and Portland, Ore.

Initially, the Canton store will create 23 jobs for the region. Goodwill intends to look at recent graduates of its local career training and education programs to fill a majority of these positions. The store also will create training opportunities allowing participants in Goodwill programs to gain real-world experience as they work to earn permanent positions.

The organization already has begun the search for a professional store manager and two experienced assistant managers. Individuals interested in applying for jobs at the Goodwill Canton retail store should click here.
