Meijer hiring for the holidays

ALGONQUIN – Meijer plans to hire 900 employees in the Chicago area for the holiday season, including jobs at its stores in Algonquin and McHenry.

Overall, the company plans to add 12,000 workers for the busy holiday shopping season. Staffing needs vary by store, but company officials said all stores have positions available.

Meijer stores are open 24 hours a day, but are closed Christmas Day.

Seasonal job candidates can apply online at www.meijer.jobs. Prospective employees can indicate store preference in the application. Job seekers can also apply at kiosks at the front of most Meijer stores.

Company officials said that while most of the jobs are temporary, some may lead to full-time employment.

The Algonquin store is located at the corner of Randall Road and Stonegate Road. The McHenry store is located at 2253 N. Richmond Road.

Meijer, based in Grand Rapids, Mich., has 199 supercenters in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky.
