GRAND RAPIDS —Midwestern retailer Meijer is preparing to hire more than 10,000 new employees for its stores across five states as the growing company prepares for the fall and holiday selling seasons.
“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,” says Janet Emerson, executive vice president of operations.
Meijer stores are open 24 hours, and only close on Christmas Day. While staffing needs vary from store to store, positions are available at all Meijer stores. Here’s a breakdown of the need:
- Michigan: 4,800
- Indiana: 1,800
- Ohio: 1,700
- Illinois: 1,500
- Kentucky: 1,000
“While most of these opportunities are part time and seasonal, these jobs can provide a gateway to a full-time career at Meijer,” says Michael Rotelle, senior vice president of human resources. “As we continue to grow, we are frequently looking to fill our on-going part-time and full-time needs. These positions provide an opportunity for people to begin a retail career within a growing company.”
Rotelle says while traditional retail positions such as stockers and cashiers are needed, there are also opportunities in more specialized roles such as meat cutters and cake decorators. “Many Meijer employees have begun in entry-level roles and grown into full-time and leadership positions,” she says.
