Ikea made headlines a few weeks ago when it announced it is raising its average hourly minimum wage to $10.76 at its U.S. stores.
ALDI says it already offers above-average industry wages. The no frills grocery chain is holding a job fair on Tuesday in Oldsmar to hire store associates, shift managers and manager trainees for its stores in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.
The hiring event will be from 6 a.m. to noon and 1 to 6 p.m. at the Courtyard by Marriott, 4014 Tampa Road in Oldsmar, where a new store is opening this fall. Positions pay $10.50 an hour for store associates, $14.50 an hour for shift managers and $21 an hour for manager trainees.
Candidates must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or GED. Employees working at least 20 hours a week receive health insurance, dental coverage and 401K benefits.
