Kroger just held an event in late October to hire 400 new associates in the Dayton and Cincinnati division. Clerks have starting minimum wages of $10 an hour. Deli and bakery workers will start at $11 per hour and third-shift workers start at $12 an hour.
Earlier this year, Kroger announced new employee benefits including higher wages, more generous retirement plans and associate benefits. The popular grocer currently has more than 110 stores between the Dayton and Cincinnati areas and employs about 20,000 associates in the division.
