Kroger Prepares To Add 1,000 Workers Before Holidays



SOUTH CAROLINA - October is my favorite month of the year. It’s spooky; the leaves become a gorgeous kaleidoscope of red, yellow, and orange; and it’s socially acceptable for me to eat candy corn whenever I want. However much I might love Halloween season, major retailers have their eyes set on November and December. As the holidays creep up, grocers like Kroger are preparing to add upwards of 1,000 people to its workforce.

The 1,000-employee addition to Kroger’s holiday workforce will help to balance the seasonal spike of activity

For its Atlanta division stores, Kroger is hosting a one-day job fair October 19. This includes all of its Georgia and South Carolina stores.

Felix Turner, Corporate Affairs Manager, Atlanta Division, Kroger“The ‘Fall into a New Career at Kroger’ hiring event will help us meet our staffing needs for the holiday season and beyond,” stated Felix Turner, Manager of Corporate of Affairs for Kroger’s Atlanta Division, in a press release. “It will also help our Division address increased staffing needs due to Kroger’s focus on grocery pick-up, especially during the busy holiday season.”

Those interested can apply prior to the job fair. Interviews will be held between 11 a.m and 4 p.m.

Will this holiday growth trajectory continue into 2020? AndNowUKnow will keep its eyes on the newswire.
