Fareway is well known for our policy on retail stores being closed Sunday’s. Many of our students appreciate this because it allows for the day of rest many seek when trying to balance school, extra-curricular activities, and work!
Time to Focus on School
All Fareway stores are closed to the public by 9 PM Monday thru Saturday. This means once closing duties are completed, our employees are off work at a good hour to focus on personal activities such as school work, opposed to working late night shifts, or even overnight hours.
We encourage our employees to be involved in the community and extracurricular activities. Flexible scheduling at Fareway allows time for students to be involved in sports, school organizations, volunteerism, community organizations, etc.
With Fareway having stores in many communities, there are potential opportunities for students to transfer to another Fareway store located close to, or in, the geographical area they plan to attend college. Feedback from our employees is that they appreciate this mobility as it is makes the transition to college that much easier being able to continue to work for one employer.
Retail Sales Team Internship Program: Each summer we select current Fareway employees to participate in our Retail Internship. This program provides interns in-depth insight into retail operations and future career opportunities.
"I'd like to say, I really enjoyed the RSTI. I believe it would be beneficial to business students to be able to see the intricacies of warehouse and transportation efficiency, as well as all that goes on behind the scenes of new store openings and product placement sets. The RSTI also keeps the entire experience fun and exciting by visiting dozens of Fareway stores around the Midwest, and meeting many great people along the way! ” - Retail Intern
"The internship was able to give me an inside look of what a building a career in the grocery business would be like. I was able to learn skills during the internship that allowed me to comfortably step right into a full-time position inside the store when I finished. If you are considering a career in the grocery business the Fareway Internship is a great way to get your career started!”- Retail Intern
"The Fareway internship experience was very valuable to me and will continue to be for future interns who are excited to begin a career with Fareway. The internship was very helpful to me and my career because it taught me how to best interact with people within the company. It’s pretty neat to be able to take all of the information I learned from many different Fareway locations and use it to better my career.”- Retail Intern
