Bashas’ Family of Stores is holding pop-up hiring events at its 114 stores across Arizona and its distribution center in Chandler, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sept. 18. On this day during this time, every individual location will have a welcome table with signage and a table for on-the-spot interviews so that managers can hire job applicants immediately.
Job applicants are encouraged to visit the location where they would like to work. For example, those interested in a warehouse position, like a delivery driver or order selector, are encouraged to visit the grocer’s distribution center, while others interested in a retail position, like a bakery manager or produce clerk, are encouraged visit the store location where they would like to work.
During the pop-up hiring events, job applicants can complete paperwork, be interviewed and have an opportunity to be hired on the spot to work at the specific location they visit on Sept. 18. Face masks, social distancing and a health/temperature check will be required.
Applications can be completed in advance online at jobs.bashas.com using the grocer’s mobile-friendly hiring platform.
The family-owned grocer that operates Food City, AJ’s Fine Foods and Bashas’ supermarkets is looking to fill more than 850 full-time and part-time positions. The open positions range from hourly clerks to store managers, and everything in-between, especially delivery drivers and order selectors who can immediately join the team.
Bashas’ Family of Stores offers flexible hours, great benefits, a grocery discount, competitive pay and professional development, growth and advancement opportunities to its employees. The company is one of the largest employers in the state and has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Arizona.
Participating locations for these pop-up hiring events on Saturday include:
- Every Bashas’, AJ’s Fine Foods and Food City grocery store in Arizona;
- Eddie’s Country Store in Pinetop (1753 E. White Mountain Blvd, Pinetop, AZ 85935); and
- The grocer’s distribution center in Chandler (125 S. 54th St., Chandler, AZ 85226),
People who work in the food service industry, particularly restaurants, lost their jobs during the pandemic. They were hired by supermarkets until their previous employers started opening back up. Now that those businesses are opening back up, these workers are returning to their former positions, leaving vacancies.
“The grocery business is strong and never dropped,” said Ralph Woodward, SVP of Bashas’ Family of Stores. “We gained customer traffic and are looking to add to our store teams.”
