Meijer to Hire Hundreds for Holidays
Supercenter chain Meijer is preparing to hire hundreds of new employees for its stores as it prepares for this year's holiday season.
“Meijer is known for friendly customer service,” said Janet Emerson, EVP of operations for the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer. “In order to provide the service our customers expect during the busiest time of the year, we need to be sure we are staffed properly. We are looking forward to welcoming new team members into the Meijer family who will help us take care of our customers.”
While staffing needs vary from store to store, most Meijer stores have positions available. Interested candidates can apply online or at employment kiosks located at the front of most Meijer stores. Positions are sought for the meat, bakery and deli departments; utility clerks; general merchandise; cashier and service; cake decorators; third-shift stocking; and grocery.
“While many of these positions are for part-time holiday work, Meijer is always looking for quality people to join our teams and these types of positions will provide great exposure to a variety of retail career options,” said Jenny Hawat, Meijer VP of talent recruitment and retention. “We encourage anyone who wants to work in a thriving business at one of the most exciting times of the year to consider Meijer.”
Meijer operates 197 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.
