Retail jobs are available at Kroger stores, as well as positions in e-commerce, manufacturing, supply chain, merchandising, logistics, corporate, and pharmacy and healthcare.

Kroger says its average hourly pay is more than $16 per hour.

Kroger spokesperson Rachel Hurst tells WWJ there’s a lot that comes along with a paycheck, including college tuition and retirement packages.

“Between health benefits, college tuition and my favorite is the retirement,” Hurst says. “After a year of service with us, all of our associates are eligible for insurance and retirement benefits.”

A competitive benefits package, discounts for employees, and further training and development programs to support employees are also in place at the company.

A hiring event is planned for Wednesday afternoon, which will include virtual and on-site interviews from 2-5 p.m.
