Madi­son Good­will hir­ing 20-30 work­ers

The Covington News - - BUSINESS - STAFF RE­PORTS

Good­will of North Ge­or­gia will be­gin re­cruit­ing 20-30 work­ers to fill open po­si­tions at its new Madi­son lo­ca­tion. The store, lo­cated at 1512 Ea­ton­ton Road, will in­clude a store and do­na­tion cen­ter and will open to cus­tomers on Jan. 31. Open­ing a new fa­cil­ity also means cre­at­ing new jobs where they pre­vi­ously did not ex­ist.

“We’ve opened more than 20 lo­ca­tions across north Ge­or­gia dur­ing the past five years and now we have the op­por­tu­nity to bring our unique shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence and new jobs to Madi­son,” said Good­will’s di­rec­tor of pub­lic re­la­tions Elaine Arm­strong.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion is hir­ing floor and pro­duc­tion as­so­ci­ates. Those in­ter­ested should ap­ply in per­son dur­ing the Good­will Hir­ing Event on Dec. 20, and 21 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the James Madi­son Inn and Con­fer­ence Cen­ter (260 West Washington Street, Madi­son, GA 30650). Can­di­dates must be at least 18 years old, bring valid iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, have a high school di­ploma or equiv­a­lent, and be able to pass a pre-em­ploy­ment back­ground screen­ing and drug test. In­ter­view at­tire is strongly rec­om­mended. Ap­pli­cants are en­cour­aged to ap­ply on­line be­fore at­tend­ing the hir­ing event.

When the store opens next month, Good­will ex­pects shop­pers to find it to be a great place for peo­ple look­ing to save money on clothes, books and other house­hold items, and donors will en­joy the con­ve­nient drive-up do­na­tion cen­ter. More­over, they will have the op­por­tu­nity to help thou­sands of other North Ge­or­gians find work.

“Our mis­sion is to put peo­ple to work,” Arm­strong said. “We do this through a va­ri­ety of job train­ing pro­grams and em­ploy­ment ser­vices. We use the sale of do­nated goods to fund those ac­tiv­i­ties.”
