Fresh & Easy to Hire 750 New Employees in Next 3 Months

Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market said it plans to hire 750 additional employees over the next three months as a part of a continued expansion, which includes the upcoming opening of its 62nd store in Manhattan Beach, Calif. slated for July 2.

The Tesco-owned retailer said it has witnessed an overwhelming response to its pay and benefits package -- for every store position hired, the company has received more than 13 applications, it said. 

"We're demonstrating our commitment to be a great place to work," said Tim Mason, Fresh & Easy c.e.o. "We know our rewards and benefits package is competitive, and our timing is right - we're creating quality jobs for our employees, right in their neighborhoods, with great opportunity for advancement."

Fresh & Easy said it now employs more than 2,100 people at its stores, distribution center, and headquarters. Each store employs about 25, it said.

The company also said it places great value on recruiting and hiring locally; and that more than 50 percent of store employees live within four miles of their store. 

Entry-level positions at Fresh & Easy start at $10 an hour in California, with similarly competitive salaries in other states, and include a quarterly bonus of up to 10 percent.

The company said it provides the opportunity for all employees to work at least 20 hours per week, which entitles them to healthcare, including medical, prescription drug, dental, and vision coverage, with Fresh & Easy paying at least 75 percent, according to the company. It also offers employees a 401(k) retirement plan with company match.

Fresh & Easy operates 61 stores in Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada.
