Employment FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions about Employment at Three Rivers Market

How much do you pay?
Our minimum wage is $15.00/hour for entry-level positions, $26.68/hour for experienced managers, and many other opportunities in between! We pay all of our employees wages instead of salaries so they earn overtime if they need to work more than 40 hours/week.

Where can I find out what positions Three Rivers Market is hiring for?
We post all open positions at the Member and Customer Services desk in the store and on the Employment Opportunities page. We may post openings on other websites as well, such as Indeed. You can also look to the right to see all positions we’re taking applications for now!

I only see entry level positions posted. What about higher level positions?
Opportunities for higher level positions are very competitive processes.  If you are interested in higher level positions, consider getting your foot in the door by applying to an entry level position.

What if no positions are open? Can I still apply?
We accept applications only when we are currently hiring for a position. Check in often to see when new postings go up!

How do I apply?
Applying is easy! Just follow these simple steps:

1. See the posted job opening on this page.
2. Review the job description, if available.
3. Pick up an application at the Customer Service Desk or download one here.
4. Turn your completed application in to the Customer Service Desk.

How long do you keep my application? Can I apply again?
Your application will be active for 30 days. You are welcome to submit another application at any time. If you are interested in an open position and it has been more than 30 days since you applied, please submit a new application.

What happens after I apply?
There are three steps to the selection process. First, our Personnel Director reviews applications. Selected candidates will have a brief phone interview with the Personnel Director. Second, you may be invited to interview at the store with the hiring manager and others as necessary. Third, we select the right person to join Three Rivers Market’s team!

Can I talk to someone about the position?
Out of respect for the workload our managers carry to serve our members and community, we only speak to those applicants who are selected for an interview.

I keep applying, why am I not contacted?
We receive a high volume of applications for positions and are not able to contact everyone. It is a very competitive process and we only contact those applicants selected for an interview.  TIP: We do not consider applications that are incomplete, illegible, littered with misspellings, or fail to meet the requirements detailed in the job posting.

Who can I speak with if I have additional questions?
Please Email our HR Director at hr@threeriversmarket.coop if you have any more questions about our hiring process.
