Campus Retail Stores Jobs:
What kind of jobs are available at Campus Retail Stores?
Typically we're hiring for what we call "casual part-time" positions, such as cashiers, customer service clerks, and shipping/receiving clerks for Campus Retail Stores.
Stock room - these positions requires heavy lifting and is in a fast-paced environment. This position requires attention to detail, fluency in reading English and the ability to work without distraction. During busy times some work is required on the sales floor shelving books. The ability to work with computers in a Windows-based environment is required.
Customer Service - these positions are at the information desk and in the textbook section of the store answering customer questions and helping them to find the books they need. Excellent communication skills are required.
Cashiers - these positions are in a fast-paced environment (especially during the back-to-school rush), and requires attention to detail, good communication skills, and a working knowledge of computers.
How long do you hire for?
These are typically short-term employment opportunities. Many of these jobs are just for the busy periods at the start of a new semester (about one month - depending on the position). There are a lot of positions available for back-to-school, and the months leading up to it (ie. in the summer).
Do I have to be a student at Concordia University to work for Campus Retail Stores?
No, we also hire non-students. Additionally, we welcome applications from local CEGEP students too.
When is the best time to apply for a job?
The best time to apply for a job at the Bookstore is at least a month before the start of a new term in order to allow time for training new staff before the back-to-school rushes begin. So, the best times to apply are in June-July (Summer hiring for the September rush), and in November-December (for the January back-to-school rush).
People for the stock room jobs are typically needed starting in early Summer when the textbooks for the Fall term start arriving. Cashier & Customer Service positions are usually hired about a month before the start of classes.
