What is our Application Process?

We will collect applications through 9 pm of the closing date of the job posting. We then filter through the applications and set up interviews with those best qualified for the position. Interviews are typically set up a few days after the posting has expired. Applicants who are not chosen for an interview will receive an email. Interview candidates will receive a phone call to set up the interview. After a candidate has been chosen and accepted the position, all other interview candidates will be notified.

Can I resubmit my application for new openings?

Yes, with our online application software, you can apply for future jobs simply by clicking the “Apply for this Job,” button for new openings.  Please ensure that you update your contact information, application, and resume as needed.

Should I call or email to check on the status of my application?

We receive dozens of applications (sometimes more) for each position that we post for. We understand your application and the status of it is very important to you. However, due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to meet with you or respond to calls you may place checking on its status. You will be notified of the status when the decision has been made. Be patient – depending on the position, this may take several weeks.

Human Resources

MFC’s HR was created in 2004 to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding staff and has since then developed policies and systems to support a staff of over 100.
The HR department has two distinct functions:

  • To maintain employee records and ensure that employment policies are fair, adhered to and consistent with labor laws.
  • To provide work-related support, training and advice to staff and managers.

HR co-ordinates wages, benefits, hiring, training, performance evaluations and educational opportunities, as well as social functions throughout the year.

The Marquette Food Co-op places a high priority on establishing a well-trained, adequately compensated and happy staff, in the belief that it results in the exceptional customer service our customers have come to expect. HR assists managers with staffing decisions and advises staff with work-related issues.
