Get the facts that get you hired.

How do I apply for a position?
Start by searching for available positions, then submit your application or create a personal profile for future openings.

How long does it take to apply online?
The online application process usually takes 20 minutes or less to complete. If you have a current resume, you can simply upload it to our system and your information will be entered automatically. If you prefer, you may also enter your personal information, along with details such as education or prior work experience, manually. You may be asked to answer a few additional questions to help us determine your qualifications for the position you are applying for.

What happens next?
Each person who applies for a position or submits a profile will receive a confirmation email acknowledging receipt of their interest in our company.

If you’ve applied for a position and your pre-screening questions indicate you meet the requirements, our recruiters will evaluate your profile to determine if your qualifications and experience are appropriate. If so, you will be contacted directly for an interview.

If you’ve submitted your profile online, but have not applied for a position, your information will be stored in our candidate database. Our recruiters use it to search for qualified candidates as new openings become available. If your profile matches the requirements of specific jobs, the recruiters may contact you.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS

  • • Visit often

    Visit our website often to stay current with new career opportunities and maintain an up-to-date profile. If you have a change of address, phone number, or current work status, be sure to update us.

  • • Know your talent

    Apply for positions that are a best match for your skills, talents, and experience. This will result in a higher potential to be contacted for an interview.

  • • Give details

    Be sure to include as many details about yourself as possible (education, work history, requested shift schedule, etc.) and answer our questions thoroughly so that we are able to get a comprehensive overview of who you are and what you are looking for in a career.

Where do I go?
Interviews are typically held at the location for which you've applied (i.e. store location, store support center, etc.). Prior to your first interview, you will be provided with all the information you will need including directions, interview time, whom to ask for upon arrival and any other important details.

Who will I meet with?
Depending on the location and position, you could meet with a number of people including the recruiter, hiring manager, store director, and your potential peers. You may even be asked to greet our Guests.

What happens next?
Again, depending on the location and position for which you’ve applied and the people available for your first interview, we may ask you back a second, third, or even fourth time. If so, we’ll provide all the information you need to be well prepared when you return. Once we feel confident that we have all the information we need to make an employment decision, we will contact you to provide feedback on your interview.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS

  • • Dress for success

    We only have one chance at a good first impression, and your overall presentation to our Guests – including your apparel – is an important part of our commitment to outstanding Guest service. Personal appearance and cleanliness are important to us, therefore, please be neat and well groomed.

  • • Be prepared

    Depending on the type of position you are interviewing for, you may want to bring extra copies of your resume to give to your interviewers. This is especially important if you have made changes to your personal information since applying to the position.

  • • Ask questions

    Don’t leave your interview feeling like you aren’t fully informed and comfortable with the amount of information you received. If you have a lingering question – ask it.

  • • Have fun

    Don’t be afraid to show us your personality. Wow us with your answers to our questions; show us how you plan to serve our Guests; and tell us in what ways you can benefit our team. Oh, and don’t forget to have fun in the process.

When will I know if I am going to receive an offer?
Although there is no deadline to when you can receive an offer of employment from United, we understand it is difficult waiting to hear an outcome. Therefore, we provide feedback as quickly as possible after the final interview. This can sometimes happen within a few days but may take as long as a few weeks depending on the length and intensity of the interview process.

How will my offer be extended?
Generally, your offer will be extended in person or over the phone by either the person to whom you will report or by the person with whom you interviewed.

What happens next?
At the time of the offer, you will be given detailed instructions on the next steps to becoming the newest member of the United Supermarkets family.
