Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Before Applying

Do your research. Read the job description and be familiar with the job you’re applying for. Read the Personal Presentation Guidelines to make sure you are comfortable following those expectations. Visit the store (if you haven’t already) and get a feel for the department and what your local Nugget Markets is like.

How do I search for jobs?

  1. Click the “Search Jobs” button.
  2. On the following screen, you can search by entering a job title, or selecting a location or category from the drop-down lists and clicking the “Search” button.
  3. To see all available jobs, leave everything blank and click the “Search” button.

Which position should I apply for?

Find the jobs that fit your experience and interest and thoroughly read the job descriptions for each one to determine what would be the best fit for you. Some positions have specific availability and experience requirements, so take that into consideration.

Can I submit a resume in person?

Feel free to bring in a resume and introduce yourself to one of the leaders, but we will still need a completed online application before beginning the interview process.


Take your time completing the application—it will take approximately 10–15 minutes from start to finish. Be thorough and include as much relevant information as you can. The “All About You” section is your chance to let your personality shine and tell us why we need you on our team. Be thoughtful and have fun!

What if the position I want isn’t listed?

You can submit your resume for general consideration without applying for a specific job. After clicking the “Search Jobs” button, click the “submit your resume” link to enter your email address, create a profile and upload your resume.

Should I apply for multiple jobs?

You can, but don’t apply to everything. Focus on the positions that suit your skillset, otherwise it looks like you may not know what you want to do. If you do choose to apply for multiple positions, update your application so it reflects the correct experience and skills for each position.

After Applying

What happens after my application is submitted?

You will receive an email confirming that your application has been received. If you don’t receive the email, log back in and verify that your email address is correct and that all steps have been completed. Our hiring team reviews hundreds of applications each week and we strive to follow up with applicants as quickly as possible either by phone or by email.

Interviewing Process

Phone Interview

After reviewing your application, if we are interested in learning more about you, a member of the hiring team will call to do a phone interview. The phone interview will be approximately 10–20 minutes.

In-Person Interview

After the phone interview, if we feel that your experience would be a good fit for the position, we will schedule you for an in-person interview with one of the store leaders. The in-person interview will last approximately 20–30 minutes.

What kind of questions will I be asked?

In the phone interview we will ask about your interest in the position you applied for and why you want to work for Nugget Markets. For both the phone and in-person interviews, expect to answer behavioral-based questions as well as questions about your previous experience. Be specific and have examples, but most importantly: relax and be yourself! We want to get to know you!

What happens after the in-person interview?

Depending on the role and the store, we might call you to do a second interview with another leader. You will receive either a phone call or an email within a few days after your interview so you know the outcome.
