Many people have lost jobs in recent weeks, either permanently or temporarily. If you’re worried about how to make ends meet, it is helpful to know that some companies are still hiring all over the country. You probably can find a job.
Demand for workers at grocery stores, drugstores, delivery services, hardware stores and some restaurants that deliver has grown. In some cases, the jobs will be permanent, and in others cases, they are temporary. If you need a way to put food on the table, a temporary job may be a good move.
But not all the jobs are temporary. Some companies are seeking permanent, full-time employees with benefits.
Here are 25 companies current hiring. Some are using a virtual, online recruiting process, and others will be happy to talk to you if you call or appear at their stores (though a phone call first would probably be good).
Most of these are national companies with a local presence, but we’ve added any local places have been able to find. If you’re a local business owner that’s hiring, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d be happy to add you to our list at no cost.
