How to submit your application

You must complete an application in order to be considered for an interview. You may submit your application via email to, or, you can drop it off at the store. Feel free to include your resume and cover letter, but note that neither will be considered without a completed application packet.

We encourage you to retain job descriptions for your reference.

What to expect

We will be reviewing applications and conducting interviews for two to three weeks following the application deadline. We will make an initial round of phone interviews with selected applicants, and then the Hiring Committee will conduct face-to-face interviews with the remaining pool of applicants.

We generally receive a large number of applications when we have openings and are therefore unable to contact each applicant personally to follow up. We will, however, make a strong effort to call those candidates who have had a phone interview once our decision has been reached.
