Mariano’s is looking to hire more than 1,000 people to staff some of its new stores.
Mariano’s will hold a job fair Saturday at the Chicago Marriott Southwest, located at 1200 Burr Ridge Pkwy. in Burr Ridge.
The job openings are for the first five stores that re-open under the Mariano’s name. The company is looking to fill all kinds of positions that range from store directors to cake decorators. Two of the stores are located in Chicago, one in Park Ridge, one in Northfield, and one in Western Springs.
The grocery store chain is buying 11 Dominick’s locations for $36 million. The deal will go through by the end of December.
Dominick’s employees are encouraged to apply for the positions, but they won’t get preferential treatment.
Of the 11 Dominick’s stores that Mariano’s is purchasing, five will reopen by March, five will undergo renovations in the spring, and the one in Westchester will stay closed until later in the year to undergo a full remodeling.
