Beginning this afternoon (11/4) and continuing tomorrow, all Lubbock Uniteds, Market Streets and Amigos will host a hiring event with on-the-spot interviews, according to a press release from this family of supermarkets. The event times on Friday are from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The purpose of the hiring event is to bring on new team members in preparation for the holidays. Both full time and part time positions are available in many different areas of these stores.

Despite the seasonal nature of this hiring event, these positions are not necessarily temporary. Historically, nearly half of the staff hired on for the holidays choose to stay on and become more permanent team members. But folks wanting a seasonal job for a little extra funds are encouraged to apply as well.

Team members have access to benefits like flexible scheduling, weekly pay and even discounts on groceries.

To apply, applicants can text UNITEDJOBS, MARKETSTREETJOBS, or AMIGOSJOBS to 433-00 depending on their work location preference. Alternatively, applicants can just show up to any store location for on-the-spot interviews during the two day hiring event during the aforementioned time ranges.

United is many Lubbock folks first job, and its many of Lubbockites' life long careers. In addition to the supermarkets, United et. al. has a sophisticated supply chain that also provides hundreds of jobs in the local area. Suffice it to say, there's many opportunities, and many different kinds of positions to suit a United team member.

Additionally, I want to say that I've been to a few of these hiring events as a radio person and I've watched how they work closely. In my experience, they've been incredibly efficient and friendly affairs. If you find yourself nervous when applying or interviewing for a job, I'd encourage you to take advantage of the job fair because its more relaxed than your stereotypical job interview.  The hiring folks at United are uncommonly nice and welcoming. I'd also like to give you a couple words of advice. Bring your ID and your social to speed up the process. Dress nicely, but there's no need to overdo it with a suit or anything. Smile and be yourself. You've got this!
