Kroger announced on Tuesday that it was hiring to fill 11,000 positions including nearly 2,000 management positions. The company reported it had created 10,000 jobs in 2017 and 12,000 in 2016.
In addition, the company will invest $500 million in associate wages, training and development during the next three years in line with its Restock Kroger initiative. Kroger said it had also committed to invest a significant part of its tax benefit from the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in its associates’ future. Further details on this investment is expected later this month.
Tim Massa, Kroger’s group vice president for human resources and labor relations said, “Kroger is a place where you can come for a job and stay for a career. We are committed to creating great entry-level jobs and investing in our associates, so they can reach their full potential.”
