NASHVILLE — Job seekers in Murfreesboro are invited to apply today for jobs at Saks Fifth Avenue’s 564,000-square-foot distribution center.
Located in La Vergne, this distribution center will fill orders for Saks.com customers around the globe. Saks Fifth Avenue has partnered exclusively with Tennessee Career Centers to conduct initial screenings and scheduling of interviews. The job fair begins a three-week hiring kickoff to fill 250 positions prior to the center’s start-up in July.
The majority of position openings are hourly and include material handling, quality control, receiving/returns, and picking/packing. All jobs are permanent and full-time, and all shifts are available.
Applicants must pass a basic skills assessment test, have at least a high school diploma or GED equivalent, and pass a drug test and background check.
Saks’ high-tech order-fulfillment center operates largely with robotic warehouse picking systems, but employees are needed to handle merchandise as well. Saks expects to move into the facility formerly occupied by Borders in July of this year.
Based in New York, Saks Inc. operates Saks.com, 46 Saks Fifth Avenue stores, and 61 Saks OFF 5TH stores throughout the nation, which includes an OFF 5TH store in the recently reopened Opry Mills Mall in Nashville.
The job fair kickoff events will be held only at the following Tennessee Career Center locations from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., today:
• Tennessee Career Center at Metro Center
