Fleet Farm opens hiring center

Jan. 24, 2019

Fleet Farm is starting to hire for its new Sioux Falls store.

The retailer opening later this year at the Sanford Sports Complex needs about 150 full- and part-time employees, according to general manager Jon Kollman. He previously managed Fleet Farm in Sioux City.

“It’s been outstanding,” he said. “I was a little apprehensive because of the market. The unemployment is really low, but it’s been phenomenal.”

The hiring center is in a former Great Western Bank branch at 2700 W. 41st St. that closed late last year.

It’s typically staffed for walk-in applicants and interviews from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays but can be available on weekends, Kollman said.

The following full-time positions are available:

  • Inventory control lead
  • Warehouse team member
  • Freight team lead
  • Warehouse team lead
  • Auto specialist
  • Customer service lead
  • Sales floor lead
  • Hardware specialist

There also are part-time jobs supporting all of those areas as well as positions at the gas station and convenience store that will be part of Fleet Farm. Pay is not being shared publicly at this point.

Applicants can search for openings here and apply online or by texting SIOUX FALLS to #86516. They also can call 866-645-5733.

Starting dates will vary, Kollman said.

“We have a pretty aggressive training schedule, so depending on the positions they’re hired for, it will determine their start date. It could be in two weeks up until two weeks before we open.”

The 175,000-square-foot store is on track to open by midyear.

“It’s definitely a one-stop shop,” Kollman said. “You can get anything from apparel to sporting goods to food and drug. There’s a grocery section. If you need it, we have it. You can fill your car with gas, get it washed, get the tires rotated. It’s everything.”

The company opened five stores in 2018 and is doing that again in 2019.

“The company has a progressive growth plan,” Kollman said. “People that are applying here are looking for careers, and we have those. We have career advancement to offer. That’s the biggest benefit to anybody coming in our doors.”
