If you’re looking for a job make sure to attend the Dollar Tree hiring event being held next week for soon-to-be-opened Pahrump location coming in early April.
On Wednesday, March 18, the Dollar Tree will hold interviews at the NyE Communities Coalition activities center located at 1020 E. Wilson Road, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Dollar Tree will look to fill up to 28 associate positions and one assistant manager position for the future site located across from Area 51 Fireworks on Highway 372, at the one-day event.
With the job market in Nye County increasingly getting better, as the unemployment rate dropped from 10.2 percent in Dec. 2013 to 7.8 in December of last year, business openings like the Dollar Store will only help the unemployment rate further decrease.
“I think that things are starting to pop,” said Tim Wigchers, workforce director of the NyE Communities Coalition. “We’re keeping a close eye on some of the things the economic development groups in town have been working on, so I think that the job market is improving in Pahrump.”
Applications are available now at the NyECC and potential applicants are encouraged to submit one in advance of the hiring event. Wigchers said that around 50 people have already submitted applications, but mentioned the majority will wait until the day of the event to do so.
If you feel you aren’t ready for the hiring event the NyECC offers weekly workshops that teach attendees resume writing, how to dress for success, program orientation and job readiness.
The NyECC also has an active job board at their campus, and Wigchers said that new jobs pop up almost daily.
