Kroger has picked up speed for hiring new employees once again, now seeking to fill around 700 positions in its Mid-Atlantic Division with a January 15 job fair.
“Kroger is looking for the best and the brightest to join our family of associates,” said Anne Jenkins, Spokesperson for Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic Division. “We hire people who have a passion for helping others and taking care of customers, and people who aspire to work hard, advance and achieve their goals. A career with Kroger offers competitive wages, flexible schedules and room for advancement.”
Interviews will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, January 15, in all Kroger stores in western Virginia and West Virginia, according to a press release, with positions open for both part- and full-time openings. Departments included in the job search are: deli, bakery, seafood, meat, produce, and management positions under each department.
This is the latest in what has been a series of hiring sprees by Kroger—in the past 6 months the company has hosted hiring events to find 1,200 employees in Indiana, 1,000 in Southern Illinois and Kentucky, as well as another 1,200 in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio.
Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic Division operates 120 stores throughout Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio.
