NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Kroger will hold open interviews Sept. 15 for all veterans and their family members.

Kroger has hundreds positions available in the Middle Tennessee area.

Applicants are asked to fill out an application online by Sept. 13 and return to the store on Sept. 15 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

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” program.

“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 Melissa Eads, marketing and public relations manager for Kroger’s Nashville division.

“Kroger is a place where you can come for a job and stay for a career,” she said, noting that about 70 percent of Kroger’s store managers started as part-time clerks.
