Roundy’s, a division of the Kroger Co., is looking to fill 500 full- and part-time positions at its supermarkets.
Roundy’s will host hiring events at all 106 of its stores including Copps, Metro Markets and Pick ’n Save stores throughout the state.
In Kenosha County, Roundy’s will be hiring to fill positions for hourly clerks, department leads and department managers for its Pick ’n Save stores. The company will host hiring events with open interviews 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 6.
Pick ’n Save has Kenosha stores at 2811 18th St. and 5710 75th St.
James Hyland, a company spokesman, said Roundy’s is not expanding in terms of new stores, but is experiencing some internal store growth.
“The grocery industry has always been a highly competitive industry — Wisconsin is no exception — and there is a need for talented people,” he said.
“In our particular case, it’s a combination of our growth over the last few years and changes that have occurred along with that growth such as online ordering and grocery pickup that has created the need for additional help.”
Though competition for workers has tightened, Hyland said he believes Roundy’s can successfully find the people it needs.
“We feel we have a hiring advantage in that we are now part of the Kroger Co., and offer excellent benefits,” Hyland said.
Roundy’s offers a full package of benefits including medical, dental and vision coverage, a flexible spending account, life insurance, a 401(k) savings plan, educational assistance, vacation and time off. For full-time personnel, it also offers an employee assistance plan.
