ADP, Albertsons, CVS rev up worker recruitment with special hiring events

Some El Paso employers are revving up their worker recruitment as they try to fill jobs while a labor shortage continues to make hiring people difficult.

ADP, Albertsons and CVS are having special hiring events this week.

Even though an estimated 21,200 El Paso County residents were reported as unemployed in August by the Texas Workforce Commission — well above pre-pandemic levels — employers still are struggling to fill jobs. The same thing is happening nationally.

El Paso’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 5.8% in August — also well above pre-pandemic levels, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas data show.

ADP, in conjunction with Workforce Solutions Borderplex, is having a four-hour, online job fair Wednesday to hire workers for multiple positions at its El Paso operations.

The company, which employs about 1,900 people at two large call centerlike facilities in West El Paso, provides human resource and payroll services to employers. It’s looking to fill jobs in customer service, implementation, insurance services, retirement services and management.

It did not provide the number of job openings, but an ADP spokesperson in August told the El Paso Times the company then had about 150 jobs available. ADP does not disclose wage levels. However, a Workforce Solutions official has said ADP jobs start at more than $17 per hour. Bianca Cervantes, a Workforce Solutions spokeswoman said, ADP wages vary by position, experience and education.

The ADP job fair is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday. Job seekers need to register online and then will be directed to the hiring event. People also can apply on the ADP website at jobs.adp.com.

Albertsons is holding hiring fairs at its eight El Paso and three Las Cruces supermarkets Sept. 28 to hire about 60 people in El Paso and 20 to 25 people in Las Cruces, said Nancy Keane, a spokesperson at Albertsons headquarters in Phoenix.

The jobs are in the deli, meat, bakery, produce and customer service departments and for cashiers and courtesy clerks.

The supermarket chain does not divulge starting wages, but wages are competitive, she said.

The hiring fairs will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 28. Job seekers also can apply online at albertsonscompanies.com.

CVS Pharmacy is having a national, virtual hiring event Friday to fill 25,000 pharmacy, nursing and retail jobs nationwide.

It has just over 40 jobs available at 13 locations in El Paso, including CVS locations in Target stores, according to its website. Jobs in El Paso include pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, store managers and cashiers.

CVS in July raised its minimum wage to $15 per hour.

It’s drawing attention to the jobs with its virtual event Friday. The drug store chain is taking applications online only and not at its stores. To apply, go to jobs.cvshealth.com, or text CVS via phone to 25000

Fourteen employers are scheduled to take part in a Workforce Solutions drive-through job fair Sept. 29 at the Kelly Center for Hunger Relief at 915 Florence St., in Central El Paso, from noon to 2 p.m.

An unspecified number of entry-level to midlevel job positions will be available from employers, including the University of Texas at El Paso, YWCA El Paso Del Norte Region, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, and Bienvivir senior health care services.

More information is available by calling 915-759-5627.
