Meijer hiring holiday help

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Midwestern retailer Meijer says it's begun hiring hundreds of people in Indiana and Kentucky as it prepares for this year's holiday season. Meijer expects to hire 500 people in Kentucky alone.

Meijer stores are open 24 hours, and only close on Christmas Day. While staffing needs vary from store to store, all Meijer stores have positions available. Interested candidates are asked to complete an online application at www.jobs.meijer.com. During the online application process, prospective team members can indicate their store preference.

Candidates may also complete an online application at the employment kiosks located at the front of most Meijer stores. The local store management will then follow up with qualified candidates.

"While most of the seasonal opportunities are part-time, these jobs can provide a gateway to a full-time career at Meijer," said Jenny Hawat, vice president of talent recruitment and retention. "As we move into a new year, we frequently look to seasonal employees first to fill our on-going part-time and full-time needs. It is a wonderful opportunity to get your foot in the door and demonstrate success within a growing company."
