If you're ready to join the Festival Foods team, we're here to help!
Here are the things you need to know. Success at Festival centers on our five core values:

  • Servant Leadership
  • Execution
  • Community Involvement
  • Associate Development
  • Service



  • You have a great attitude.

    Attitude goes a long way. At the end of the day, Festival Foods strives to provide the best guest experience and attitude is an important part of being a great teammate.

  • You can easily be yourself.

    Not everyone can survive and thrive in every environment. This is why the overall fit between us is so important. Speak with truth and candor and show your personality.

  • You have undeniable passion and energy.

    Passion and energy are key characteristics that make our associates successful. Not just a passion for our products and our industry, but a passion for learning and growing. What are you passionate about and how can you leverage that passion to be successful?

  • You're personable and can easily talk to just about anyone.

    If within 10 feet of a guest in the store, Festival Foods associates acknowledge them with a smile, a simple hello or in striking up a hearty conversation. Are you up for this?

Festival employees
  • You enjoy coming to work.

    You don't have to put in time at work and then escape to "life" to be happy. You enjoy life and enjoy work. You feel alive and joyful not just at home but also at work. When you love your work, it's a part of your life.

  • You're ready to work hard, but have fun.

    There isn't one associate in Festival Foods that doesn't work hard at their job, but also doesn't abide by #5 (see above).

  • You familiarize yourself with the job description.

    Though sort of a no-brainer, familiarizing yourself with the job description prior to an interview is good practice. It helps you prepare for what is expected of you and will give you an idea of what Festival Foods is looking for in a particular role.

  • You aren't afraid to ask questions in the interview.

    Take this opportunity to ask questions about us, our involvement in the community and how we develop our organization and our associates. Ask us questions that are important to you! You're interviewing us just as much as we're interviewing you.
