CINCINNATI -- The Kroger Company, the nation's largest grocery retailer, is holding a career fair this Saturday, May 14, to fill an estimated 14,000 permanent positions. Interested candidates can apply online at jobs.kroger.com and return to a store on May 14 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. (no appointment necessary).

"We have openings across the country for friendly, hard-working associates to join our team," said Tim Massa, Kroger's group vice president of human resources and labor relations. "We are looking for people who are passionate about making a difference for customers and communities  and want to do it in a fun, team environment with great benefits and advancement opportunities."

Over the last eight years, Kroger has created more than 74,000 new jobs. This figure does not include jobs created as a result of capital investment, such as temporary construction jobs, nor does it include increases due to the company's mergers.

Kroger's total active workforce grew by more than 9,000 during 2015. More than 90 percent of the new jobs are in the company's supermarket divisions, ranging from full-time department heads and assistant store managers to part-time courtesy clerks and cashiers. The company hired more than 7,000 veterans in 2015, and has hired more than 35,000 veterans since 2009.

Kroger, one of the world's largest retailers, employs more than 431,000 associates who serve customers in 2,778 supermarkets and multi-department stores in 35 states and the District of Columbia under two dozen local banner names including Kroger, City Market, Dillons, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry's, Harris Teeter, Jay C, King Soopers, QFC, Ralphs and Smith's.
