Grocery retailer Kroger has announced its drive to hire new staff for opportunities in retail, supply chain, healthcare, and delivery.

The US-based company has emphasised its benefits and work culture, leading it to be recognised as a top place to work by the American Association of People with Disabilities and Disability:IN and One of America's Greatest Workplaces for Diversity by Newsweek.

Kroger states it is committed to supporting service members and military families. Since 2014, the retailer reportedly hired more than 50,000 veterans in stores, technology, logistics and more, and continues to support veteran associates through the Veterans Associate Resource Group.

Kroger also invites students considering a career in retail to join the company through seasonal internships, which provide one-on-one mentorship, as well as coaching and guidance from managers.

Some general benefits that Kroger offers its employees are its tuition reimbursement programme, well-being resources, and free financial counselling.

Candidates can apply to Kroger using its all-new, mobile-friendly candidate experience, which uses profile import capabilities from LinkedIn or Indeed.

Kroger chief people officer and senior vice president Tim Massa commented: “While many may join our team in pursuit of a job, we truly want to help our associates discover a fulfilling career."

Kroger is currently in the midst of a battle to acquire its competitor Albertsons, which The US Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) is attempting to block. The case is set for trial in August 2024.
