Do I have to be a student at Concordia University to work for Concordia Stores?

We prioritize Concordia student applications but also accept applications from local CEGEP students.

When is the best time to apply for a job?

The best time to apply for a job at Concordia Stores is at least a month before the start of a new term in order to allow time for training new staff before the back-to-school rushes begin. So, the best times to apply are in June-July (Summer hiring for the September rush), and in November-December (for the January back to school rush).

People for the stock room jobs are typically needed starting in early Summer when the textbooks for the Fall term start arriving. Cashier & Customer Service positions are usually hired about a month before the start of classes.

To apply for other permanent and contract staff employment at Concordia University, please see the Human Resources website. The HR department does not handle student jobs, the various university departments do that directly.
