Retailers Kaufland and Carrefour, Banca Romaneasca, Whiteland distributor and Riviera Casino are hiring hundreds of people despite the economic crisis, saying this is the best time to do it because many people are on the market, following layoffs The discount hypermarket operator Kaufland Romania, part of the Schwarz German group, plans to hire 100 people to open a new store in Bucharest at the end of January.

"Since we're opening new stores, we have to hire people, too. We haven't been affected by the crisis yet, we are only affected to the extent that we have to import products priced in euros," explained Octavian Cojocaru, Kaufland's marketing manager.

Another retailer that is hiring is Carrefour, which plans to bring 1,800 new employees on board this year. "We are not feeling the crisis. We will hire another 1,800 people next year," said Andreea Mihai, the market manager of Carrefour in December last year. The retailer posted more than one billion-euro business in 2008.

On the other hand, even the banking sector, affected by the financial crisis especially in Western Europe, is still looking for people.

An ad posted on recruitment website shows that Banca Romaneasca, the local branch of the Greek group NBG, intends to hire ten people, both in Bucharest and in the rest of the country for various positions.

Casino chain Riviera Casino is seeking 300 people to open a casino in Bucharest in March. After the ads were run in newspapers and on the Internet, the company received approximately 100 Cvs.
