Albertsons Companies is partnering with major companies to provide part-time jobs to their employees who have been furloughed or had their hours cut.
The supermarket retailer is looking to immediately hire 30,000 new associates. The company said it fully understands and appreciates that most people will return to their previous jobs when the crisis is over.
Currently, Albertsons said it has secured partnerships with 17 companies, some of which include: ASM Global, BJ’s Restaurants, G6 Hospitality, Hilton, Inspire Brands, Marriott International, MGM Resorts, Regal Cinemas and G6 Hospitality.
Dedicated application sites have been established for employees from participating companies. The partner companies will provide links when they notify their employees about the opportunity for part-time employment with Albertsons.
“The most valuable asset and the core of any business is people, and we are working hard with many human resource teams across a variety of businesses who are actively defining next steps for their employees,” said Vivek Sankaran, president and CEO, Albertsons. “So many businesses in the hospitality and retail sectors are scaling back hours or temporarily closing as their customers remain home and adhere to shelter-in-place orders. We are grateful to be a resource to help fill a critical need in our own business and take care of people who want to continue working during this time of national emergency.”
