DollarTreeThe Economic Solution Center at Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration is inviting the residents of Central Brooklyn out for a tremendous employment opportunity.

The center is working with Dollar Tree in helping to staff ten new stores that will be opening across Brooklyn and Queens between August and November, with part-time and full-time positions available.

“We’ve established a strong relationship with the company, and so right now, we’re actually the direct contact for them,” said Willie Sanchez, employment specialist at the Economic Solutions Center. “We serve such a large community here in Bed-Stuy, we can assist a lot of people in finding employment.”

The center held its first employment screening on Tuesday, and they had more than 65 people lined up for interviews within a matter of days. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Right now, we’re looking to fill over 300 positions, from cashiers, to stock, to assistant managers, to managers, to even  greeters,” said Sanchez. “Just arrive fully prepared with an up-to-date resume and professional attire. They will need to register on site, at Restoration. But I encourage them to do that ahead of time to make sure they get a slot.”
