Just as the fourteen-foot tall letters spelling out "FASHION OUTLETS OF CHICAGO" are being placed on the roof of the shell that will be, come August 1, the building that houses more than 150 discount shops, the shops inside are beginning to see shape.
That's a lot of shops, which means a lot of employees. And filling all these positions can be hard. Ads on Craigslist have started to surface--but during our hard hat tour last week, we caught wind that the Fashion Outlets of Chicago is planning a job fair. We snagged a preliminary flyer (for stores only) outlining the deetails.
If you're interested, or know someone who is, the job fair happens Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15 from 10AM to 5PM on both days at the Stephens Convention Center just off the Rosemont Blue Line stop on the Blue Line. We'll have more information about what stores will be at the job fair later, but this should be enough to wet your whistle for now... until we find out what the employee discounts are.
