Kroger announced Monday that it will hold a hiring event on Thursday to fill 10,000 jobs across its businesses.
The event will offer virtual and in-store interviews for prospective staff in its retail, e-commerce, pharmacy, manufacturing and logistical operations. In addition to its namesake Kroger stores, the company operates brands that include Fred Meyer, Harris Teeter and Ralphs.
The company has an average national wage of more than $15.50 per hour. In March, Kroger said it planned to invest $350 million to raise the average associate wage to $16 per hour. In a press release, Kroger added its benefits include a tuition reimbursement program, mental health counseling, and discounts on groceries, electronics and streaming services.
