Kroger says its stores are filling some 10,000 positions

By Store Brands - 01/23/2017

As President Donald J. Trump urges businesses to accelerate job growth in the United States, Cincinnati-based The Kroger Co. said Jan. 23 that it is hiring to fill an estimated 10,000 permanent positions in its supermarket divisions. Over the past eight years, Kroger has created more than 86,000 permanent new jobs, the company stated in a press release.

“Kroger’s growth trajectory continues to create opportunities for our people to advance their careers and to do that in a fun team environment with great benefits,” said Tim Massa, Kroger’s group vice president of human resources and labor relations, in a statement. “We’re looking for associates who are passionate about people and about food and who want to make a difference for our customers, communities and each other.”

“Kroger is a place where you can come for a job and stay for a career,” Massa added, noting that approximately 70 percent of Kroger’s store managers started as part-time clerks.
