Retailer hosts Veteran Career Expo Event and offers military discount for Veterans Day
Kroger will honor active and former military members and their dependents with a 10 percent discount in stores nationwide on Veterans Day.
On Saturday, November 11, all service members, veterans and their dependents with a valid military ID are eligible for the promotion.
Kroger veteran associates can take advantage of the savings on top of their 10 percent Our Brands discount, saving 20 percent on Veterans Day.
A longtime supporter of service members and military families, Kroger contributed more than $41 million to the United Service Organizations (USO), recognized as the largest cumulative donor in the organization’s 82-year history. Kroger continues to support veteran associates through the Veterans Associate Resource Group (ARG), which unites Kroger veterans and veteran supporters with the common purpose of highlighting the talents and strengths of associates with military experience through education, mentoring and networking while supporting veterans in need within local communities.
The company will also host a veteran and military family virtual career expo on Thursday, November 9 from 2-5 p.m. ET.
“Service members and veterans have made great sacrifices to guarantee the freedoms that America enjoys. Kroger is proud to honor our heroes by offering a meaningful career for those who have served, including military service members and their families,” said Tim Massa, senior vice president and chief people officer at Kroger. “By embracing veterans experiences and skills, we are building a stronger workforce and stronger communities.”
The Veteran Career Expo will provide an opportunity for veterans and their families to learn more about career opportunities with the Kroger Family of Companies and participate in one-on-one conversations about their passion and interest to help them match to career paths and opportunities. The virtual event will also spotlight Kroger veteran leaders to provide insight on the veteran experience within the organization. Candidates may register for the career expo here.
Kroger is committed to providing opportunities that support the unique needs of our veterans, transitioning service members and their families. In the last 10 years, Kroger hired more than 50,000 veterans in-stores, technology, logistics and more.
“As a former Kroger store leader and Top Women in Grocery honoree, I’m proud to refer friends and fellow veterans to explore the myriad of opportunities with an organization who respects and honors the many sacrifices endured by military veterans,” said Cora R. Mauzy, a member of the Veteran’s ARG and operational project leader. “You can be confident that your leadership and communication skills will be maximized and recognized on various levels and platforms.”
