“A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.” – Yogi Berra
We continue on with the Fortune 500 companies list on today’s post. The companies range from supermarkets to Energy and Retail. The common theme is that these companies are hiring and there are jobs out there. Where I could search across the company I’ve listed the number of job opportunities. Across today’s companies, there were over 459 job opportunities when I checked across the sites.
- Kroger – Kroger, ranked at # 22 on the list, is a retailer with over 2,400 supermarkets and department stores in the United States. Their career site has a wide range of search opportunities – Hourly Store, Manufacturing, Accounting Services and Distribution Center. You can also review company background and register from this page. Clicking on Opportunities provides an advanced search function. A simple search returned 272 job opportunities across the United States.
- Marathon Oil – #23 on the list, Marathon is known for integrated energy. Their careers page is fairly simple, with a brief overview at the top of the page and links on the left for Apply, High School, Benefits and Locations. The Apply for a Career link leads to a page with several choices: Oil Companies, Transportation, University / Entry Level and Speedway. There were 61 job opportunities across all categories when I checked the site.
- Costco Wholesale – Not everyone has heard of this specialty retailer, ranked 24 on this year’s list. Their careers page has quite a bit of information running down the left hand side of the page. Some examples are: About Costco, Locations, Employment Opportunities and much more. The center of the page has a company overview, and then goes on to describe each of the major job functions with some embedded links. This makes it somewhat difficult to read, but if you are patient you will find the category and links that apply to you. While it is not easy to see all of the jobs that are available, I counted 45 job opportunities when I checked the site.
- Home Depot – Ranked at #25, Home Depot is know as the Do It Yourself store. While they have struggled a bit this year, they have an established business model. Their careers page is clean and crisp. There are links at the top left hand side of the page for 5 different functional areas of employment, plus one for new store openings (where they will obviously need help). Below this on the left hand side is a search function, followed by a number of additional links to related information. The center of the page has click boxes for Store Managers, Customer Service and Supply Chain. Also, at the bottom of the page they have a link for their 2009 career fair calendar. Unfortunately, you must register on the site and check each job type individually.
- AmerisourceBergen – A drug distributor and ranked 26 on the list, AmerisourceBergen’s career page is fairly simple. The left hand side of the page has links for Benefits, History, Culture and more. The center of the page has a brief overview, followed by a link for career opportunities. Clicking on this brings up their job search engine where you can filter on a number of criteria. There were 81 job opportunities when I checked the site.
Good luck in your search.
