According to a report in today’s Press Herald, Trader Joe’s is now hiring for their store in Portland. (see the job posting on the Trader Joe’s website)
Work to transform the store was in full swing Thursday, with contractors installing walls and stripping the vestiges of Wild Oats off the exterior.
Spokeswoman Alison Mochizuki said the company plans to open by the end of the year.
The company declined to say how many people it hires for its stores. Mochizuki said the hiring crew in Portland has handed out about 1,000 applications, with four recruiters operating out of a small trailer and working under a pop-up tent in the parking lot.
