Kroger to hire new employees at all stores during September job fair
Kroger will add to its workforce again during its second hiring event this year.
Kroger The grocery chain will host open interviews from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, at all neighborhood Kroger stores. Spokeswoman Melissa Eads said there are many part-time opportunities, as well as nearly 100 jobs available at the retailer’s soon-to-open Madison store.
“Positions are available in most every department including front end, deli, meat and grocery,” she said. “Applying to work at our stores is easier than ever with open interviews and the ability to apply from anywhere.”
Job seekers should fill out an application on www.startnewcareer.com before attending the career fair. The company also allows candidates to apply for positions via smartphone or tablet.
Another hiring event in November will cater to military veterans and their families. Kroger, which currently has 431,000 associates in 2,778 stores in 35 states and the District of Columbia, says it offers competitive wages, flexible work hours, benefits and advancement opportunities.
The Sembler Company broke ground in July on a new 123,000-square-foot Kroger Marketplace store on the southeast corner of U.S. 72 and County Line Road. The facility will combine clothing, home goods, a toy department and expanded grocery offerings in one facility.
Sembler is also building Midtown Marketplace, a 114,000-square-foot shopping development anchored by Kroger at Browns Ferry Road and Wall Triana Highway in Madison. The location will feature a Starbucks, pharmacy with drive-thru, online ordering service, more meat and seafood options, an expanded deli and bakery, natural and organic selections, and additional prepared foods.
