Ikea Hiring Starts February 4
Ikea has been taking applications from Red Hook residents for more than a week-and-a-half, having given them a three-week head start, but it sent out a release with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce yesterday that it will start general hiring for the Red Hook store on February 4. Some of the publicizing of job opportunities will be done through local community boards, but the application process will be online. The store is set to open sometime in summer with August being mentioned most frequently. Click here for instructions on how to access the company's job listings. It is hiring for both positions that require skill levels and experience as well as some entry-level jobs. It is unclear how many jobs are being filled locally. Employment was one of the big selling points in the campaign to have the store approved.
