Bells Ferry Hiring Event to Start Tuesday
Woodstock – Goodwill of North Georgia is recruiting 40 workers to fill open positions at its new Bells Ferry location. The store, located at 6719 Bells Ferry Road, will include a donation center and will open to customers on August 28. Opening a new facility also means bringing new jobs to the area. “With each store we open we are creating new jobs where they previously did not exist,” Elaine Armstrong, director of public relations.
The organization is hiring floor and production associates. Those interested should apply in person during the Goodwill Hiring Event on July 29 – 31*, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at Iglesia Fuente de Vida (205 Arnold Mill Road, Woodstock, GA 30188). Candidates must be at least 18 years old, bring valid identification, have a high school diploma or equivalent, and be able to successfully pass a background check and drug screen. Applicants are encouraged to apply online (requisition number: 3953) before attending the hiring event, but walk-ins are welcome.
When the store opens next month, Goodwill expects shoppers to find it to be a great place for people looking to save money on clothes, books and other household items, and donors will enjoy the convenient drive-up donation center. Moreover, they will have the opportunity to help thousands of other North Georgians find work.
“Our mission is to put people to work. We do this through a variety of job training programs and employment services. We use the sale of donated goods to fund those activities. In fact, our goal is to help more 16,500 North Georgians find work this year,” explains Armstrong.
*Once all positions are filled the hiring event will be closed. Applicants are encouraged to join us on first day of the hiring event.
