In what it said is the “recognition of the challenging retail landscape… regarding the exit of Target from the Canadian market,” Sears Canada said it is extending a “special offer” to Target Canada employees.
Sears Canada said it is encouraging Target Canada employees interested in job opportunities at Sears Canada to visit the Sears Canada Careers site at www.sears.ca, and select the “Careers at Sears” link at the bottom of the home page under About Sears Canada. Beginning early next week, the site will publish information on special events being planned by Sears regarding career opportunities such as local job fairs across Canada. There will also be an open invitation to Target Canada head office employees for a meet-and-greet with Sears executives and human resources experts on Wednesday evening, January 21, 2015 at Sears’ head office located at the Toronto Eaton Centre.
Sears Canada will also offer affected Target Canada employees the Sears Canada employee discount for a period of 16 weeks. This discount is 25% on soft goods and 15% on hard goods and applies to both regular and sale prices with some exceptions, noted the company.
