The job fairs, March 1 and 8 in Mt. Prospect, will also be used to staff a new Fresh Thyme Farmers Market in that community. But the company is encouraging people who want to work at the Deerfield Fresh Thyme, slated to open this summer at Cadwell Corners, to attend as well.
Below is the full press release from Fresh Thyme:
Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets, a new specialty grocer featuring healthy and organic value-priced offerings, will be hosting a job fair on March 1 and March 8, 2014, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. CST at the Holiday Inn, 200 E. Rand Rd., in Mt. Prospect. Fresh Thyme seeks to staff 90 to 100 positions, including management-level, for their first store, which is scheduled to open in Mt. Prospect this spring. The Mt. Prospect location will be followed by eight more grand openings across the Midwest this year.
“Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets is passionate about making ‘local’ a focus of our markets, from the products and produce that we stock to the people that work in our stores,” stated Chris Sherrell, President and CEO Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets. “It’s a very exciting time right now as we’re preparing to open 60 stores in next five years. This fast company growth will provide opportunities for rapid career advancement.”
Interviews at the job fair will be available on a walk-in basis with no appointments needed. Candidates are encouraged to bring a resume.
“Above and beyond experience, we seek out charismatic, friendly people to join the Fresh Thyme team,” Sherrell said. “Whether you’re a student looking for your first job or an experienced retail manager looking for a new career path, we would love to meet with you to discuss potential opportunities.”
Fresh Thyme also has a store in Deerfield scheduled to open this summer and invites individuals interested in working at that location to attend the Mt. Prospect job fair.
