This Week: Top 100 Employers with 770,000+ Jobs Open NOW

By Susan P. Joyce

JOBS from the top 100 employersWeek 9: researched on 2 June 2020. I will update this list every week for the foreseeable future.

Most of these employers have more jobs open this week than they had open last week. The total this week is a 20,000 job increase from last week!

Check the list, below, of 100 employers with a total of over 770,000 jobs open, based on our research of the jobs posted on or on the employer's website.

Currently, the hospitality and retailing industries dominate this list. The industries of transportation, healthcare (including animal hospitals), and business services are becoming a larger portion of this list.

Keep the following things in mind as you view the list of employers:

  •   Over 25% of the jobs are "Director," "Manager," or "Supervisor" jobs!  

    Don't assume that all the jobs for these employers are minimum wage. Jobs at all levels are available! And several of these employers probably have very few minimum wage jobs (Apple, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Deloitte, etc.). Check them out to see!

    Overall, more than 25% of the 770,000 jobs have the word "Director," "Manager," or "Supervisor" in the job title. This ranges from Manager-in-Training and Assistant Manager to Case Manager, Service Manager, District Manager, Store Manager, Food Service Director, Facilities Director, Shift Supervisor, Production Supervisor, Campground Supervisor, and thousands more.

  •   11 new employers were added this week.  

    Postmates (headquartered in San Francisco), System Transport (headquartered in Cheney, WA), Sonic Drive-In (headquartered in Oklahoma City, OK), Panera Bread (headquartered in Sunset Hills, MO), Sam's Club (headquartered in Bentonville, AR), Advantage Solutions (headquartered in Austin, TX), FRESENIUS (US headquarters in Waltham, MA), Obsidian Financial Services (headquartered in Mahwah, NJ), Mercy Health (headquartered in Cincinnati, OH), SOAR Transportation Group (headquartered in West Valley City, UT), and the VCA Animal Hospitals (headquartered in Los Angeles, CA).

    If you live in one of the headquarters locations, you may find many interesting, relatively high-level jobs. Worth checking out, if they are near you.

  •   Links to each employer's website are included in the table below.  

    Check the website to see if the employer looks like a place where you would want to work before you try to find connections who work there or apply for any of the jobs..

    Most/many of these employers have openings across the USA (and, often, Canada). Do not assume that the location of the headquarters is the only location with job openings. But, do consider that the headquarters areas may have well-paying "corporate" jobs available.

  •   The fastest way to land a new job is through an employee referral --   not through an online application.

    That employee referral makes you stand out among the vast crowd of people who apply anonymously. So, leverage your network (LinkedIn is helpful for this). Find people who work at one of these employers IF you want to work for that employer.

These 100 employers are a very small sample of all the active employers in the USA currently. The jobs available are a very wide variety of opportunities from Vice President to trainee and intern.

The Job-Hunt Top 100 Employers Hiring List

The jobs for Walmart, CROSSMARK, Ross Stores, Sam's Club (owned by Walmart), Maxim Healthcare Services, Chico's FAS, Apple, Dollar General, LifePoint Health, and Jacobs Engineering are available on the employer's website. The other employers' jobs are available on

Many of these employers have locations across the USA (and, often, the world), so they are probably in your area, too. Look to see if similar businesses in your location are hiring, too.

The Bottom Line:

Hopefully, you see many employers are hiring people and many different jobs are available right now. Try a Google search for "jobs near me," and you will find jobs from employers who are local to you. To land your new job, read former recruiter Biron Clark's article about networking during this pandemic, recruiter Ed Han's article about how hiring is happening NOW, and then dig into LinkedIn to expand your network and to make your expertise more visible to the world. With a good LinkedIn profile, a good network, and some luck, your next job will find you.

Good luck with your job search!
