With the MCO in place, quite a few people have lost their jobs, particularly those who earn daily income. That said, with the growing demand for essential items, Tesco Malaysia has announced that they are looking to hire people during this busy time to support the store.
The Tesco Head of People, Alvin Low said that they’d like to bring in 600 new colleagues to work at Tesco stores for at least the next eight weeks.
“New colleagues will be placed across all of our 60 stores nationwide and Tesco online. We have seen a huge surge of orders via Tesco online since the Movement Control Order and we need all the help we can get to serve our customers as best we can,” he said in a statement, reported NST.
Since there’ll be new hires, existing Tesco staff members will have the chance to get ample rest.
Those who are interested to apply would have to be within the age of 18 to 60, with a minimum of Sijil Pendidikan Malaysia (SPM), no working experience needed. Those with special needs are also welcome to apply for the job.
Job vacancies include Store Associates, Cashiers, Tesco Online Pickers and Customer Delivery Assistants.
“We have since received some applications. We hope more will come forward to join us soon as we have streamlined our recruitment system and interviews are conducted via telephone so that candidates will not breach the MCO,” said Low.
You can send your application by email to Recruitment.Operation@tesco.com or call the Customer Service Hotline at 1300-13-1313 if you are interested in applying. For applicants without access to emails or phones, you can walk-in to get the application form at the nearest Tesco store.
