IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET A WEEKEND AND SUMMER JOB IN KAPPAHL STORES?
Yes, sometimes we need extra staff, particularly during the summer, at Christmas and at weekends. However, we have no central list of store vacancies, so you must contact the store manager at the store in which you wish to work.
WHERE DO I APPLY FOR A JOB IN A KAPPAHL STORE?
Each store manager is responsible for recruiting staff according to need. Contact the store where you want to work.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET A STORE JOB?
You must be at least 18 years old because checkout work is an integral part of all store jobs.
WHAT QUALITIES AND QUALIFICATIONS DO I NEED TO GET A JOB IN A KAPPAHL STORE?

I AM A STUDENT. CAN I APPLY FOR A WORK EXPERIENCE PROGRAMME AT KAPPAHL?
Yes, we take students from textile courses at the colleges with which we cooperate.

Occasionally we do employ summer staff. Otherwise, you have a better chance of getting a summer job in our stores. Contact the store of your choice directly if you are interested.
