Kroger Welcomes Job Seekers to New Year, New Career

[Indianapolis, IN.] January 3, 2021 – Kroger Central Division today announced it has openings for interested job seekers. The hiring opportunity aims to ease employment concerns for people struggling through the pandemic. Through 2020, this division of Kroger, serving four states, has hired 12,908 associates – many from restaurants, hotels and other businesses hit hard by the pandemic.  

“At Kroger, we know COVID-19 will continue to affect every aspect of our daily lives and operations for some time. We are taking proactive steps to ensure our stores and facilities are clean, safe and appropriately staffed as well as shelves are full of fresh food and essentials and our supply chain and e-commerce solutions continue to operate efficiently,” said Colleen Juergensen, president of Kroger Central Division. “Every action we’re taking requires friendly, caring and dedicated associates, so we’re recruiting talent to join our team in the new year.”

Since March, the Kroger family of companies has collectively invested more than $1 billion to reward associates via Appreciation Pay, Hero Bonus, Thank You Pay, store credits and fuel points as well as safeguarding associates and customers through the implementation of safety measures. Combined, the organization has made more than 30 policy and process changes to protect its associates and customers.

Kroger offers competitive pay and benefits plus flexible work schedules, stable job opportunities and discounts on Our Brands products.

“While 2020 challenged us all in many ways, it has been an uplifting experience to be able to provide bridge jobs to thousands of unemployed workers and serve and support our associates, customers and communities by living Our Purpose to Feed the Human Spirit,” continued Colleen Juergensen. “Others have discovered why Kroger says, Come for a job. Stay for a career.”
