What happens after I apply?

There are three steps to the selection process. First, our Human Resources Department reviews applications. When there are open positions, selected candidates will have a brief phone interview with the Recruiting Coordinator. Then you may be invited to interview at the store with the hiring manager and others as necessary. Finally, the hiring manager selects the right person to join Wheatsville's team!

Can I talk to the hiring manager for the position?

Out of respect for the workload our managers carry to serve our owners and community, we allow only those who are selected for an interview to speak with the hiring manager about our open positions.

Who can I speak with if I have additional questions?

Please ask to Email our Recruiting Coordinator at mbarrett@wheatsville.com if you have any more questions about our hiring process.
