Washington State’s retail industry is constantly changing and growing. Economists are predicting the industry will have generated some 50,000 job openings in the five years ending in 2021.
Though retailers do most of their hiring leading up to the end-of-the-year holiday hiring rush, retail opportunities are open year round. The retail industry is always among the more lively industries in the state offering jobs ranging from entry-level part-time jobs to upper-level management positions.
