To meet demand during the coronavirus pandemic, C&S Wholesale Grocers will host a virtual hiring event on Aug. 26 seeking warehouse selectors to join the company’s team.
According to C&S: “[S]electors play an integral role in ensuring every American has reliable access to nutritious food during the pandemic by preparing orders and moving product as efficiently as possible. They earn competitive starting wages, performance-based incentives, competitive benefit plans, paid time off, career growth opportunities and more.”
The nationwide event will run from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT. Candidates can join the company’s virtual interviews to become a selector with one of C&S’ companies, in which role they would earn competitive starting wages plus performance-based incentives. Those interested can apply online.
