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.
