Meijer Inc. does not want to be caught understaffed in the busy holiday season. The Midwest retailer expects to make 10,000 hires to gear up for the fall and winter and to support new stores.
“Meijer is always looking for good people,” EVP of operations Janet Emerson said in a media statement. “Our continued growth provides a great opportunity to find new team members who will help deliver on the Meijer promise of providing exceptional customer service.”
All of the chain's stores are hiring, and the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer plans to make 4,800 hires in Michigan, 1,800 in Indiana, 1,700 in Ohio, 1,500 in Illinois and 1,000 in Kentucky. Meijer stores are open 24 hours and 364 days a year, closing only on Christmas.
The new employees will primarily be seasonal and part-time. Applicants can apply online or at an in-store kiosk.
“While most of these opportunities are part time and seasonal, these jobs can provide a gateway to a full-time career at Meijer,” said Michael Rotelle, SVP of human resources, in a press release. “As we continue to grow, we are frequently looking to fill our ongoing part-time and full-time needs. These positions provide an opportunity for people to begin a retail career within a growing company.”
