-A A +A

OCALA – Career seekers with dogged determination may find working for Chewy.com is tail-waggin’ good — or purrfect, as the case may be.

The pet supply e-retailer, now owned by PetSmart, is seeking to add “Chewtopians” to its “Wow Team” as it prepares to open the new Ocala Fulfillment Center. In partnership with CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion, Chewy.com will host a hiring event from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, at the College of Central Florida Klein Center, 3001 SW College Road (State Road 200) in Ocala for warehouse and fulfillment center associates (also known as “agents of awesome”).

Based in Dania Beach and founded in 2011, Chewy.com became one of the fastest growing privately-owned e-commerce companies in the nation. With the opening of its new Ocala facility, Chewy.com now operates fulfillment centers in Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Indiana.

The company offers an open-space, collaborative environment that values integrity, creativity and accountability. The ideal candidate will have a deep-rooted passion for pets and a penchant for enriching the bond between pet parents and their pets.

Interested candidates should apply online at www.employflorida.com (reference Job Order No. 10586613 for Fulfillment Specialists and Job Order No. 10586616 for Forklift Operators). As with all hiring events, professional dress is encouraged. For information, call 800-434-JOBS (5627), ext. 1790.
