HENRICO COUNTY, Va -- If you're looking for a job, Kroger wants to talk to you.

The grocery chain is having a job fair Wednesday afternoon at its training center in Henrico. Hiring managers are not focusing on hiring part-time employees to work the store floor, though. They're looking for people interested in management.

"We're hiring co-managers on up, across stores. We are growing steadily and are promoting from within, so with that promotion comes an added need for more members of the management team in each store," said Terry Reynolds, Kroger's human resources coordinator.

Kroger is mainly looking for people with an associate's or bachelor's degree, or have previous experience in retail management.

The job fair is from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Kroger Training Center. It's located at 2235 Staples Mill Road. Interested applicants can apply online on Kroger's website and then go to the job fair with a resume.
