BROOKSHIRE, Texas (Covering Katy News) – Rooms to Go on the Katy Freeway in Brookshire is adding an additional 60 to 70 positions in its warehouse. The company will hold a hiring fair next month and plans to make job offers on the spot. The positions will be full-time with benefits.
“These are full-time positions that are eligible for full benefits, including great health insurance for you and your family, 401k, paid vacation and holidays,” said a statement on the company’s website.
“Many of the jobs will be entry-level positions but there will be some management level positions available too,” Rooms To Go recruiting manager Becky Richards told Covering Katy.
Business has been strong, but the increasing demand for furniture due to the floods of Hurricane Harvey have also added a sense of urgency to the hiring process. “We want to be available for the community with the inventory that they need,” Richards said.
Richards also indicated that Rooms To Go is not a company that hires for the short term.
“Ninety-five percent of our positions are full-time with benefit positions,” Richards said. “We have a really low turnover,” she added. Richards noted that the average employee stays with the company for five years.
It’s recommended that people who are interested in being hired by Rooms To Go attend an information session to learn more about the position which they plan to apply. The information session will be held on Thursday, Oct. 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Waller County Community Center at 21274 FM 1098 in Prairie View, TX 77446.
“Come to the information session to enjoy free food and drinks and register for giveaways,” the statement said. “Also, learn more about the culture at Rooms To Go, and why you would want to be part of our team.”
The job fair will be held at the same location on Friday, Oct. 6 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and again on Sat. Oct. 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those applying can save time by beginning the process online.
