Hiring Process FAQs

How can I find out about new positions and apply?

Check our postings. After you complete an online application, you can get email notifications about new jobs.

What's the application and assessment process like?

The online application and assessment each take 20-25 minutes to complete. You may apply for more than one position and attach a resume. You may update your profile as needed, but they expire after one year. Unfortunately, we're not able to respond to all candidates.

Who will see my application and assessment?

Once the assessment and application are completed, a hiring manager, The Fresh Market Human Resources Team, and the Talent Acquisition Team will have access to your information to determine if there is a good match for you.

How is hiring for new store different than hiring for existing stores?

The process is very similar, but we host open house events for new stores. Complete the online application before an open house career event and you will receive an email invitation to schedule an interview during the event, should your qualifications match an open position. Many new store positions may be filled prior to the event.
