The European discount grocery chain Lidl, which has already announced plans to expand into the Charlotte area by 2018, is hosting an event this weekend to recruit for a number of executive positions.
Lidl said it is seeking a number of area managers and store supervisors, jobs that will pay up to $60,000 plus benefits, and up to $17.50 an hour plus benefits, respectively.
The job fair is being held Jan. 27-28 from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. at 5700 Westpark Dr., in the Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park. Lidl said walk-ins are welcome, though those interested can apply online beforehand.
Lidl said preferred qualities for candidates include: “strong customer service skills, astute attention to detail, the ability to work well in a team environment, excellent time management and communication skills, and the ability to adapt to the ever-changing retail environment.”
In Mooresville, Lidl is planning a store on four acres on Williamson Road for a 36,170-square-foot grocery store, and in South End, the chain is planning another 33,000 square-foot grocery store at 3229 South Blvd., the Observer has reported.
Lidl operates more than 10,000 stores in 27 countries. It is in the midst of building a regional headquarters in Alamance County, about 55 miles northwest of Raleigh.
