I wore a white button up and black dress pants. Before doing an interview always go in to the place that you hav an interview at and look at what the workers are wearing. Dress 2 or 3 levels above that. (e.g Buy-Low workers wear black pants and a polo shirt. I work black dress pants, dress shoes, and a white button up)

Head Office is Great, the problem is the employees they have to Hire for Management because there is a over all lack of skill and work ethic. I just quit recently. I took a position as a second man in the meat dept. The Manager they hired was completely worthless and expected everyone else to do the job except him. Paper work and emails were always his excuse. Come and go when he pleased and talked and spead rumors all the time.Brought things outside that were personal and made it affect my job and others! In the common sence he was a bully... I personally would have not ever given this person a management job ever!.or neither i would have Stepped down as a Meat Manger
And would still be working for Buylow/Nesters.But the Store Manager was great and all the supervisors at head office i worked with are second to none. Wages are great if you work hard and want to succeed and lots of room for advancement. I would recommend working for Buylow Foods/Nesters Market. Just have to learn the company policies and there programs and follow them to a tee

I did not have an interview as the manager knew me personally, as we are a small town she asked around and got nothing but positive feedback about me, so I got the job right away.

Allowable sick time goes on hours worked

I think that buy low is over priced and has a poor selection of items. Employees are treated badly and in return the customer suffers. I don't think buy low will survive 2022. 2 thumbs down

No butcher available.. everything comes pre packaged.. just need to separate into personal packages

Answered

No. You ask for an application, fill it out and hand in your resume with it if you have one. Then they'll call you after they look over your application and they think you'd be a good fit. You then work out a day and time for the interview.
