Meijer is partnering with Capital Area Michigan Works! to host a hiring event in an effort to boost summer staffing and prepare for future growth at its Lansing Distribution Facility.
The hiring event will be held from 11am to 3pm, Thursday May 2, at the Capital Area Michigan Works! Office located at 2110 S. Cedar Street in Lansing.
The event will feature informational sessions with applicants, and will be followed up with formal interviews at a later date. Applicants must register at meijerhiring.eventbrite.com
The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer plans to hire up to 300 full-time, part-time and seasonal warehouse associates for its Lansing Distribution Facility. Position responsibilities include gathering store orders and staging them for distribution. Previous warehouse experience is preferred, but it is not required since training will be provided.
"While most of the positions are part-time, these jobs can provide a gateway to a full-time career at Meijer," said Frank Guglielmi, director of public relations. "It's a wonderful opportunity to get your foot in the door and demonstrate success within a growing company."
Meijer specifically reached out to the Capital Area Michigan Works! Office in an effort to ensure area veterans would receive information about the event. Representatives expect more than 500 applicants in attendance.
"Capital Area Michigan Works! is excited to partner with Meijer to promote the warehouse associate positions in the greater Lansing area," said Edythe Hatter-Williams, president and chief operating officer at Capital Area Michigan Works!. "It will be a great opportunity for job seekers to receive assistance with the application process and help Meijer connect with future employees."
