Meijer to hold local hiring event


Meijer will hold a hiring event Thursday and Friday to fill jobs at its Tipp City distribution facility, company officials announced.

The Dayton Daily News last month reported that the Michigan-based retailer plans to hire up to 150 part-time employees for its warehouse crew, with assistance from the Montgomery County Job Center.

Meijer representatives meet with job candidates from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday to answer questions, assist with the application process and conduct interviews.

Applicants should be able to work in various temperature conditions and continuously handle product weighing up to 75 pounds, officials said.

Warehouse team candidates should have a high school diploma, GED or equivalent. They also should be available to work weekends, holidays and overtime when required.

The part-time positions have the potential for future full-time opportunities, officials said. Pay is based on position, experience and shift assignment.

The Meijer distribution facility is at 4200 S. County Road 25A in Tipp City, Miami County.

Meijer, headquartered in Grand Rapids, Mich., operates 203 “supercenters” and grocery stores in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.
