SOUTHGATE (WWJ) – Some jobs are coming to the area with discount grocer Aldi. The company is holding a couple of hiring events, Monday, in Metro Detroit.
About 20 people were waiting for the doors to open, early today, to apply for positions with the discount grocer. Robin Hubbard is among those hoping to land a full-time gig. “I’ve been looking for a few years. It’s very hard,” she says. “I’m currently working, but it’s only part-time. I’m trying to find something that’s a little bit more stable and more money and benefits,” adds Hubbard.
Aldi plans to open a grocery store in Woodhaven, and the hiring event is being held at the Holiday Inn Southgate Banquet and Conference Center on Northline Road from 7am until 6pm, Monday. Applications are also being taken for metro Detroit stores at the Met Hotel in Troy on Crooks Road.
Aldi is looking for cashiers, shift managers and manager trainees. The jobs pay in the range of $10.50 to $20.45 an hour depending on the position. Those applying must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or GED.
