After almost two years of pandemic, retail remains one of the most stable and constant fields in terms of job supply, but also among the most sought after by candidates, according to eJobs.ro, the leader of the Romanian recruitment market . At the moment, there are almost 8,000 jobs available for those who want to work in retail. Not only has the pandemic not negatively affected job dynamics in this sector, but many employers have expanded their job offerings due to business growth.

Although the average retail salary is lower than in other areas, bonuses and sales commissions are most often added to the average basic income declared in this sector. Thus, more than half (53.8%) of the retail employees earn less than 3,000 lei net per month, according to the data entered by over 350,000 employees in Salario, the eJobs brand salary comparator. However, 6.5% of employees earn over 7,000 lei net, according to data from the largest recruitment platform in Romania.
