If you are a more in-person kind of folk, stay alert for Kohl’s next hiring event happening from October 13 to 15 at all their stores, distribution centers and e-commerce fulfillment centers. During the event candidates can walk-in to any store between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. for an on-the-spot interview and can receive job offerings that same day.

The Dallas Morning News reports that Kroger is looking to hire 1,500 full and part-time roles for their North Texas locations. Company officials told the news outlet that with new retailers like H-E-B opening stores in the area, grocery workers are in demand, and Kroger is understaffed. 

The retailer encourages candidates to apply and offers growing opportunities for those who want to move into management positions. They also offer workers an array of benefits including tuition reimbursement up to $21,000, competitive wages, health and dental insurance, pension plans and financial planning tools, employee discounts and more. In addition, Kroger is the only North Texas retailer with its workforce represented by a labor union, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, with whom they ratified a wage increase agreement in 2020.
