INDIANAPOLIS (June 1, 2015)– Fresh Thyme Farmers Market is set to open two additional stores in the Indianapolis area after entering the market with three stores last year. In preparation of opening the stores later this summer, Fresh Thyme is hosting a job fair Friday, June 5 from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, June 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Indianapolis- Carmel, 251 East Pennsylvania Parkway.

Candidates may apply to one or both of the locations which will be located in Fishers and Carmel. The Fishers store will be located at 11481 East 116th Street and the Carmel store will be located at 3400 East 146th.

“The people of Fishers and Carmel are wonderful and we are pleased to be able to hire locally through this job fair,” said Chris Sherrell, President and CEO of Fresh Thyme. “As a Midwest-based company, we want to create jobs for the same Midwest communities we serve.”

Full-time and part-time opportunities available include store management, department management, supervisor, store administrator and many other positions. Candidates attending the job fair are encouraged to apply atfreshthyme.com before attending and then bring a resume and be prepared for an interview on-site during the fair. Appointments are not necessary.

“With online applications and hiring processes being the ‘norm’ these days we feel a face-to-face approach is a welcome opportunity to jobseekers,” Sherrell said.“We are looking forward to meeting local candidates and encourage anyone looking for work to come by and introduce themselves.”

Fresh Thyme is looking to fill 110 full-time and 70 part-time positions between the two stores. Benefits for full-time employees include medical, dental, vision and paid vacation.
