Hundreds of seasonal jobs available at North Jackson facility
If you're looking for seasonal part-time or full-time work, the Things Remembered fulfillment center in North Jackson is hiring.
The company hosted an open house Sunday to hire additional workers who will help embroider names on Christmas stockings, put initials on scarfs and throws and other personalized products.
The company also trains part-time and full-time workers to engrave or emboss personalized gifts, answer calls to take orders or answer questions at its call center.
"We'll fill over 600 positions. Around 70 in our customer call center, and the remaining in production in some way whether it's engraving, embroidery, gift-wrapping, or in quality control," said Vice President of Human Relations Rich Farruggia.
About 100 people made it to the open house.
People can be hired to do QC or quality control inspect the products before items and gifts are boxed up and rolled down the conveyor line.
The work is to make sure customers and gift receivers have a memorable personalized item.
The seasonal hires are to make sure Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and all holiday orders are filled in time.
