Meijer is coming to Northeast Ohio, and they're looking to hire.
The chain has announced it will open three supercenters in the area in Avon, Mentor, and Stow. With the stores expected to open in late spring, an estimated 900 people will need to be hired.
Said Regional Vice President Tom Wilson:
"Foundations are set, floors are poured, and the walls are up at each of our new Northeast Ohio stores, so every day we’re a little bit closer to opening our first three locations in Greater Cleveland. The opportunity to begin hiring for hourly positions and put together customer-focused teams is the next step in bringing our new neighbors a one-stop shopping solution. We look forward to hiring local team members who can be our future store leaders as we continue to grow in Northeast Ohio."
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Meijer is known for pioneering the "supercenter" concept back in 1962 and already has more than 240 stores across six different states, including Ohio. The new Northeast Ohio locations will feature the usual blend of fresh produce, meat, and dairy along with apparel, pet supplies, toys, electronics, and gardening equipment.
The 900 available full and part-time positions include team leaders, cashiers, cake decorators, customer service, receiving clerks and meat cutters. Candidates can apply at jobs.meijer.com by entering "Avon," "Mentor," or "Stow" in the search field.
