Kum & Go to transition 2,000 workers to full-time jobs with benefits
In a move addressing the tight labor market, Kum & Go plans to shift 2,000 of its part-time positions to full-time jobs, making employees eligible for an enhanced benefits package that includes health insurance, a retirement plan, paid time off, tuition reimbursement and leave for new parents, the Des Moines Register reported. After testing the program for six months to make a majority of its store positions full-time rather than part-time, Kum & Go is now expanding the initiative across its more than 400 stores in 11 states. The full-time jobs range from cashier work to assistant manager roles that pay between $12 and $20 per hour in Des Moines.
