Goodwill Industries of Central Florida (GICF) has dozens of job opportunities available for anyone looking for a job this holiday season – and beyond – as it sees more demand from shoppers at its local stores. The organization has entry-level to managerial-level openings that range across different sectors, including retail, warehouse, transportation and safety.
Big box retailers who ramp up staffing for the holiday season appear to have fewer opportunities for job seekers this year. A recent report from the National Retail Federation indicates that retailers will be hiring anywhere from 450,000 to 600,000 seasonal workers – a significant drop from the 670,000 seasonal hires in 2021.
Inflation is a contributing factor and consumer spending habits are shifting.
Goodwill Industries of Central Florida also offers generous, best-in-class benefits, including health, dental and vision insurance, as well as a tuition scholarship program which launched in May of 2022. The scholarship program provides all part- and full-time employees who have been with GICF for at least 90 days, 100% pre-paid coverage of tuition and associated costs for any Florida-state public college or university, accredited technical college, or trade school.
Goodwill Industries of Central Florida proudly serves Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, and Volusia counties. For more information about job openings or to fill out an online application, visit www.GoodwillCFL.org.
