Roundy’s Supermarkets Inc. wants to hire up to 2,500 workers for its Pick ’n Save and Metro Market stores throughout Wisconsin, the Milwaukee-based company announced Friday.
Roundy's, like other supermarket operators, is seeing a surge in demand from shoppers stocking up on food, toilet paper and other items as social distancing, quarantines and other measures are enacted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company needs help in all positions and all shifts at 106 Wisconsin stores. This includes full-time, part-time and salaried management positions.
Roundy’s benefits include medical, dental and vision coverage, flexible spending accounts, life insurance, 401(k) savings plans, tuition reimbursement, vacation days and an employee assistance program.

Employers had trouble finding employees before the coronavirus struck.  Where the hell are they going to get 2,500 workers?  Or Amazon get 10,000?  Or Walmart get 150,000?  It's absurd.
