There are job openings in retail sales in every province, region and city. Whether it’s as warehouse clerk, cashier, handler, sales consultant or store manager, there is a broad range of available employment opportunities.
There are hundreds of thousands of points of sale across Canada, most of which are clothing stores, health and personal care stores, service stations, speciality food stores, building material and supplies dealers, electronics and appliance stores, and so forth.
As the retail sector does not require any specific skills, the workforce is comprised mainly of students, for whom the industry is often a way of entering the job market. Although workers in this industry are relatively young, a new trend is currently emerging and that is the hiring of an experienced labour force, namely retirees.
Retail outlets are major employers offering stimulating careers and, more importantly, the opportunity to progress and rapidly rise through the ranks.
