Discount grocery chain Aldi will host a second Wichita job fair, this one slated to run from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Sept. 3 at the Hotel at Old Town, according to a news release.

Citing “ongoing growth” in the Wichita area, the retailer, which hosted a similar job fair in Derby earlier this month, is in the midst of a push to beef up its workforce, according to the release. Aldi is hiring for the positions of store associate, shift manager and manager trainee. The release states that manager trainees can earn a salary of $45,000 per year with the opportunity to earn more than $66,000 eventually as a store manager.

Applicants must be 18 and must possess a high school diploma or GED equivalency degree. Aldi offers full health insurance benefits for employees who average 25 or more hours worked per week, according to the release. The event will take place at the Hotel at Old Town conference center, 210 N. Mosley.
