Whole Foods Market to add 6000 workers during hiring event


Whole Foods plans to hire thousands of people on November 2.

The company plans to hire 6,000 new employees.

The event includes full-time and part-time opportunities for both seasonal and permanent positions, including cashiers, culinary experts and prepared foods specialists.

Job seekers can stop by any Whole Foods store Thursday to receive an interview, with a chance for an on-the-spot job offer.

Whole Foods has 20 locations in New York state, the majority of them in the New York City area. Some candidates will be hired on the spot, Whole Foods said.

Since its acquisition of Whole Foods Market, Amazon has made several changes, including lowering prices on a range of key grocery items and converting the Whole Foods customer rewards program to Amazon Prime. The 6,000 Whole Foods jobs don't count toward that goal, according to a Whole Foods spokesperson.

Those interested can either apply ahead of time or fill out an application at the store. The dress code for the interviews is casual.
