New Gander Outdoors four-day hiring event set for next week in Ocala  

OCALA  – The first round of rebranded Gander Mountain stores are getting ready to open, including the new Gander Outdoors in Ocala. And that means jobs.

CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion has partnered with Gander Outdoors to hold a four-day hiring event, Dec. 11-14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the store – located in the former Gander Mountain – at 3970 SW Third St., Suite 101, in Ocala.

Gander Mountain shuttered last spring and its assets were picked up by Camping World, the nation’s largest retailer of recreational vehicles, parts and outdoor gear. The Ocala store is one of just a handful scheduled to open early in the new year.

Company representatives will be on site recruiting for full- and part-time Customer Service Associates as well as Service Technician Specialists, Products Specialists and Warehouse Specialists.

Starting wage is $12.25 an hour. Benefits include health insurance (medical, dental and vision) as well as paid vacation and holidays.

Interested candidates should register at www.EmployFlorida.com and submit an online application prior to attending. 

For more information, visit CareerSource CLM’s calendar of events or call 352-249-4378, ext. 1270 or 800-434-JOBS, ext. 1270.
