PEORIA (WEEK) - Come for a job and stay for a career. That is the mantra employers at Kroger are hoping will help recruit new workers before the start of the holiday season.

The grocer held a nationwide hiring event Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET.

25 News caught up with an Assistant Store Manager Debra Burgess-Tipton at the Peoria Kroger on 9219 N. Lindbergh Dr., who said her store's goal was to get around 20 candidates who can fill full-time, part-time or seasonal positions.

"What we mean by seasonal is a lot of the college students go to school and then come back for the holidays... But, we'll take anyone part-time if they just need to make extra cash over the holidays.

-Debra Burgess-Tipton, Assistant Store Manager at kroger

$100 referrals are being offered to current Kroger associates.
