Secrets to impressing their recruiters
`We hire for attitude and train for skill' is our mantra. If we can find applicants who have strong customer service skills and high energy, and are enthusiastic about the organic and natural foods industry (and who love food), then they are a fit for us. We can train on the other skills later. -- Janet Lapaire, CHRP, Team Member Services Coordinator Whole Foods Market, Pacific Northwest Region
