Midwestern retailer Meijer is preparing to hire thousands of new team members for its stores as the company prepares for the fall and holiday selling seasons, Janet Emerson, EVP of operations, says.
“Meijer is always looking for good people,” she said. “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.”
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 locations. The retailer plans to hire more than 10,000 new team members throughout the Midwest—including 4,800 team members in Michigan, 1,800 in Indiana, 1,700 in Ohio, 1,500 in Illinois and 1,000 in Kentucky.
Interested candidates are asked to complete an online application here. During the online application process, prospective team members can search for openings in their area and indicate their store preference. Candidates may also complete an online application at the employment kiosks located at the front of most Meijer stores. Local store management will then follow up with qualified candidates.
“While most of these opportunities are part time and seasonal, these jobs can provide a gateway to a full-time career at Meijer,” said Michael Rotelle, SVP of human resources. “As we continue to grow, we are frequently looking to fill our ongoing part-time and full-time needs. These positions provide an opportunity for people to begin a retail career within a growing company.”
While traditional retail positions such as stockers and cashiers are needed, there also are opportunities in more specialized roles such as meat cutters and cake decorators. Many Meijer team members have begun in entry-level roles and grown into full-time and leadership positions.
