German discount grocery chain Aldi plans to hold hiring events for a store planned in East Huntingdon.

The store, located on the site of a former Kmart near Mt. Pleasant, is scheduled to open early next year.

Aldi is hiring for the position of store associate, which offers a base pay of $11.30 per hour and a raise after six months of employment.

The event will be at Holiday Inn Express, 250 Bessemer Road, East Huntingdon, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Dec. 7.

Job requirements include: a high school diploma or GED, retail experience, the ability to lift 45 pounds, and availability to work between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. Monday through Sunday.

Aldi is in the midst of a nationwide expansion and plans to add 25,000 jobs by the end of 2022.

The East Huntingdon store will bring the number of Aldi stores in Westmoreland County to six.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
