New Hy-Vee Grocery Store Hires Over 500

With help from the Missouri Career Center in Springfield the national grocery chain Hy-vee was able to participate in a special hiring fair.  KSMU’s Matthew Barnes reports.

Partnering with the Ozark Region Workforce Investment Board, the Missouri Career Center held a special hiring event in early August.  The event was held to assist Hy-vee in interviewing of over 1,000 applicants.

Those who attended the event were interviewed and more than half were hired on the spot. The national grocery chain Hy-vee is scheduled to open a store in Springfield in mid October and has hired over 550 people.
