OHIO, USA — In response to coronavirus pandemic, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine has issued executive orders that result in many people being displaced from their job or are experiencing shortened hours. 

The new limitations have also resulted in high demands on products such as food and toiletries causing store associates to work around the clock to ensure all services and items are available to customers.

That is why major grocery store chains and local markets are looking to hire new employees.


Kroger currently has over 40 immediate openings available within 30 miles of northwest Ohio.

Positions range from retail clerk, pharmacy technician, jewlery sales professional, deli clerk, meat cutter and e-commerce clerk.
