How to Get Hired
We asked Nugget Market, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We look for people who are enthusiastic, have a positive attitude and are willing to provide friendly, helpful service. Because we encourage our associates to have fun at work, a cheerful person with a sense of humor is a plus. Our family’s culture is built on inclusion, providing support for each other and striving to become better, so we also seek out people with a willingness to learn and who appreciate the value of teamwork. Candidates must be personable and enjoy engaging with others—make direct eye contact and SMILE!
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Through our online application process, candidates have the opportunity to tell us more about themselves in our “All About You” section. In addition to describing what they hope to accomplish by working for Nugget Markets, and how they would like to contribute to our company, they are able to let us know about their outside-of-work interests and causes about which they are passionate. This helps us get to know them better, and during the interview process we look for candidates who display a positive attitude, have a strong propensity to provide excellent service, and will have fun with their fellow associates and our shoppers—who have an enthusiastic commitment to our company and to creating an exceptional experience for our guests.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Our goal is to find people who have a passion for delicious food. While we always hire people for entry-level positions, our current focus is on our Kitchen and Bakery departments, filling roles that require specialized skills, such as chefs, production cooks, cake decorators and bread bakers. At Nugget, our associates enjoy an excellent work-life balance and the opportunity to have a fulfilling career utilizing their talents!
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Our application process is conveniently handled online, and to read about our company and apply, prospective candidates can simply go to: www.nuggetmarket.com/careers. It is also helpful to visit our stores, meet our store directors and associates, and observe our teams in action to get a sense of our energetic vibe and service-minded culture.
