Kroger job fair draws crowd

(WMC-TV) - Kroger held a job fair Wednesday afternoon, looking to fill a variety of positions.

Andrea Marr says working for Kroger would be a great experience regardless of what job she might land.

Applicant Dmarion Rudd hopes his previous job experience will get him a job.

Kroger recruiters say the job fair came about because of good sales and great earnings. The company is now in a position to hire more customer-friendly associates with the right stuff.

Sonya Wen, who works in human resources for Kroger, says they want people who can enthusiastically engage and go the extra mile for their customers.

Wednesday's job fair could not have come at a better time in Shelby County, which has an unemployment rate of 9.8 percent.
