E-mail Print PDF

TENSE AND EXCITEMENT fill the air as hundreds of work applicants line up at the city’s Public Employment Service Office (PESO) bringing with them credentials for employment at the Robinsons Supermarket. Robinsons is set to open its 22nd store in Pagadian City

inside the City Commercial Complex’s (C3) basement this December, timed for the yuletide season. Robinsons, owned by John Gokongwei Jr., sells quality merchandise, groceries, constructions, carpentry and electrical tools, furniture, kitchen utensils at reasonable prices.

Kit Bodegas, human resource manager of Robinsons said that they need at least 60 male and female employees who are either degree holders for managerial positions and college levels or with enough experience and background for the rank-and-file.

Bodegas disclosed that positions Robinsons wants to fill up range from store manager, assistant store manager, administrative officer, sales supervisors, clerks, checkers, cashiers, utility men, graphic artists and technical specialists.

Hiring for these positions ended last Aug. 26, while prospects will then be scheduled for interview and those hired shall undergo a one-month training, Bodegas added.

He likewise cited the help of the PESO and its manager, Engr. Joseph Isaias Quipot, and his staff for organizing the jobs processing.

“Robinsons branching out to Pagadian City will surely help give employment to Pagadianons and at the same time provide exposure to Robinsons in this part of Mindanao,” he said.

For his part, Quipot said Robinsons’ presence in the regional center has lent a hand to the city government’s employment promotion program.

Quipot added that aside from Robinsons, there are also job openings for managerial positions, accounting clerks and cashiers at the Gaisano Capital, Greenwich, RD Pawnshop and also welders for Lao Construction.

Mayor Samuel Co said he is happy with the development, adding the soft opening of the C3 this December will surely attract more lease proposals from other big businesses in Luzon and Visayas including international food chains and franchises, textiles, hardware and ready-to-wear companies.
