Normal Schnucks to Bring New Jobs to the Community!

 

            NORMAL, Ill. – Everything is proceeding according to plan and customers in the Normal community can look forward to a brand new, state-of-the-art Schnucks store to open in early fall.

That’s according to Store Manager Eric Snow.  Snow says Schnucks employment personnel are currently in the area seeking out qualified candidates for both part and full-time positions.  “We hope to hire approximately 160 new associates.  We’ve had a great response so far, but we have a lot of positions to fill,” Snow said. 

“While we welcome anyone with retail food experience to apply, those without experience are also encouraged to fill out an application,” said Snow.  “Schnucks will provide the training and mentoring to ensure every associate’s success.”

            Individuals interested in employment with Schnucks should visit the Illinois Department of Employment Securities at 207 East Hamilton in Bloomington (near the intersection of Main and Veterans Parkway) Monday-Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

            Schnucks stores offer an exciting and fast-paced environment with career opportunities for talented associates who want to work for a friendly, family-oriented company.  Some other reasons to consider working for Schnucks include:

  • Flexible schedules
  • Competitive wages and set pay increases
  • Paid vacation and health benefits after qualifying period
  • Chance to advance – Schnucks has a strong tradition of promoting from within
