As many as 200 new jobs will be coming to Lubbock early next year when United Supermarkets opens its new Market Street location at 19th and Quaker.

To fill those new positions, the company will host a job fair Nov. 26 through Dec. 14 at City Bank Coliseum, located near 4th and University on the Texas Tech University campus. Times for the job fair are as follows:

  • Monday-Thursday, Nov. 26-29:         9 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Friday-Saturday, Nov. 30-Dec. 1:      9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Monday-Thursday, Dec. 3-6:             9 a.m. – 7 p.m.

  • Friday, Dec. 14:                                  9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The store will employ approximately 400 people, with half of those transferring from inside the company and the other half being new hires, according to Shannon Elrod, director of talent management for United Supermarkets, LLC.

Positions will be available across the store, including department clerks, bakers, cooks, floral designers, stockers, night stockers, checkers and sackers.

“We will conduct the complete hiring process at the job fair – from paperwork to interviews and extending job offers,” Elrod said.

Although walk-ins are welcome, interested persons can speed up the process by completing an online application prior to the job fair at Each person who applies for a position will receive a confirmation email with details about the fair. They may then drop by for an interview at the coliseum at their convenience.

The new store, the company’s 11th Market Street location, and third in Lubbock, is slated to open Jan. 9, 2013. The location also will include a standalone United Express convenience store.
