A second job fair is now scheduled for Sunday, May 24 and Monday, May 25 at downtown Vancouver hotel to provide prospective applicants another opportunity to fill a wide range of full-time and part-time positions in retail management, operations and sales with iconic designer brands.

No advanced appointments are necessary, but as per standard practice applicants should come prepared and bring copies of their resume and cover letter to distribute to a number of interviewers.

Please note that interviews will be conducted by the fashion and luxury brands, which are the entities offering the jobs and not McArthurGlen.
