Retailer to host holiday season job fair

Posted: Updated:

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - On Saturday, people will be at Tanger Outlets shopping for jobs. All applicants will be seeing red, as the stores that are hiring will have red "Career Opportunities" signs in the windows.

This isn't a traditional job fair, since some stores will have tables set up outside, but Tanger is asking people to go in and out of the different stores to apply. General Manager Nick Barrett says Tanger is one of the Grand Strand's larger employers, with more than 1,500 people working at each location.

During this time of year, the outlet needs even more employees to handle all the holiday shoppers. WMBF checked on the posted jobs, and at least 32 stores from both locations are currently hiring.

It may seem like it's a little late in the game with Black Friday being exactly two weeks away, but Barrett says stores are still looking, and this job fair will hopefully push things along to get more people in place quickly.

Barrett also says some of these jobs last longer than just the holiday shopping season.

"It could lead to long term, full time employment," Barrett said. "It could start your opportunity into a career with retail, and those are great jobs."

The job fair will be at both Tanger locations, the one off of Highway 501 and the one off of Highway 17. It will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
