Hampton Roads, VA – August 31, 2015 – The entire Kroger family of stores will hold open interviews on Tuesday, September 15, for all veterans and their family members. The Hampton Roads hiring event will take place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Kroger Training Center in Virginia Beach located at 2029 Lynnhaven Parkway Suite 100, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23456.
Nationwide, The Kroger Co. is hiring to fill an estimated 20,000 permanent positions in its supermarket divisions.

Kroger hired more than 6,000 veterans in 2014, and has hired more than 29,000 veterans since 2009 as part of its commitment to active duty troops and the nation's 23 million veterans through “Honoring Our Heroes,” a multi-faceted program the company designed to show its deep gratitude.
In addition, Kroger is proud to have helped the "100,000 Jobs Mission" surpass its original goal in January 2014, seven years early. The "100,000 Jobs Mission" is a coalition of more than 130 companies with the common goal of hiring more than 100,000 transitioning service members and military veterans by 2020.
“Kroger is deeply committed to the nation’s veterans and their families, and we continue to seek out opportunities to honor heroes through career opportunities,” said Noelle Motley, spokesperson for Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic Division.
The online application requests an email address, employment history and education information and takes about 30 minutes to complete. Kroger/Banner is asking applicants to input the hashtag #HonoringOurHeroes in the “Search by keyword” field at the top of jobs.kroger.com when applying online to be eligible for an in-store interview on September 15.
Through the Honoring Our Heroes program, Kroger stores have raised more than $11.9 million since 2010 to help support USO programs, which represents the largest cumulative gift to the USO in its nearly 75-year history.
