Since November of 2017, Michigan Works! Southeast has helped Kroger of Brighton hire nearly 30 people. Every Wednesday, Kroger of Brighton comes to our Livingston service center to meet with job seekers including youth, dislocated workers, and veterans: conducting open interviews. “This is a priceless opportunity” says Dreama Drayton, a Kroger of Brighton representative. “The staff is very accommodating and eager to send job seekers to speak with us regarding our employment opportunities.”

Kroger of Brighton has attended other valuable events supported by Michigan Works! Southeast such as Hire MI Vet and the 13th Annual Livingston Regional Job Fair. “I appreciate their partnership and they appreciate ours,” said Diane Carson, Businesses Services Coordinator in Livingston. Other Kroger branches are following suit, with Howell, Pinckney, and Hartland now scheduled to come to our Livingston service center for open interviews.
