Improved Selection Enables Higher Sales Revenue at Sunglass Hut

Hiring Better Quality Retail Associates in order to Grow the Business

With 350 Sunglass Hut stores and 1,800 employees, of whom 70% were casual and often seasonal, it had an employee turnover of around 55% for retail associates and 30% for store managers. With an average store size of six employees, such a high turnover of staff impacts rosters, staffing levels and, potentially, sales. On average, the time it took to fill a position had been around 20-25 days, causing concern for hiring managers.

Sunglass Hut recruits over 700 hires per year from over 70,000 applications, resulting in the need to identify great talent from the immense application pool – without overlooking high-calibre applicants.
