Bi Rite Hiring for New Divisadero Store

Wa-hoo! Bi Rite Market is hiring for their new Divisadero store, slated to open in March, and for the flagship Mission store & Creamery.

Here are the details:

Why do I want to work for Bi-Rite?

The Bi-Rite Family of Businesses is opening a second Market in San Francisco at the corner of Divisadero and Hayes, and we need passionate, hardworking, detail-oriented individuals who love food and feeding others. Both of our Markets (and our Creamery) are looking to fill a variety of positions including butchers, cooks, deli servers, grocery stockers and more.

Bi-Rite is a learning-community, with endless opportunity for on-the-job training and education about food and service. Our unique staff culture and generous benefits package sets us apart from other food businesses. We offer a 20% discount on purchases throughout the store, a medical and dental plan after 90 days, a meal with your shift, a 401K retirement plan after one year of employment, access to 18 Reasons classes (our educational non-profit) and the opportunity for career advancement.

Just like Bi-Rite Market on 18thStreet, which has been in the Mogannam family for 50 years, Bi-Rite Divisadero will serve its neighborhood and evolve over time to develop its own identity. We’re looking to hire a staff that wants to invest in building relationships in our new neighborhood. This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves a once in a life-time challenge.

What’s Bi-Rite Market Divisadero going to be like? When is it opening?

Like Bi-Rite Market 18th Street, Bi-Rite Market Divisadero will be a one-stop-shop neighborhood market with a full selection of fresh farm-produce, groceries, fresh meat & fish, prepared foods, a full-service butcher and deli counter, wine and spirits, a health and beauty section and more. It’s slightly bigger than 18th Street, allowing for the addition of an ice cream shop inside the Market as well as a full-service cheese counter.  The new market is scheduled to open in early March 2013.

What positions are available?

We are looking for cashiers, ice cream scoopers, deli servers, service butchers, cooks, produce and grocery stockers, supervisors and a visual merchandising assistant. Please visit www.proven.com [and search for “Bi-Rite Market”] for an up-to-date list. We will have many open positions at both market locations, as well as the Creamery, to accommodate this exciting expansion.

When will I start?

It depends on the position. Most staff will start working at Divisadero two weeks before the store opens. Divisadero is scheduled to open around the first week of March.

Will I be able to advance from one position to another?

Absolutely.

I’m interested, how do I apply?

To apply, please visit proven.com, search for Bi-Rite Market to find the available positions, and upload a cover letter and resume.
