Kroger is hosting a hiring event today, Wednesday, August 11, from 1-4pm, in all Nashville division stores. Those are stores in Middle and East Tennessee, North Alabama, and Southern Kentucky. The goal of the event is to hire close to 500 associates with a variety of positions available including roles in pick-up and pharmacy.
“Kroger is one of the largest employers in the country and our longstanding culture of opportunity has created an environment where many people, whether it be a cashier, stocker, or pharmacy technician, come for a job and stay for a career,” said Sonya Hostetler, president of the Kroger Nashville division. “To continue advancing our inclusive culture where associates feel valued and can feed their future, we are embracing greater collaboration, technology, and innovation to attract, identify, and develop talent to help us deliver a great shopping experience for our customers.”
The Kroger hiring event is open to all, including veterans, high school and college students, retirees, and people with physical and intellectual disabilities. Interested applicants should visit their neighborhood Kroger during the time of the event, and if possible, apply ahead of time at jobs.kroger.com/.
