Service

The Festival team is committed to practicing the "Boomerang Principle." Associates are empowered to make decisions and take actions that will "Bring the Customer Back."

We Are Guided by the Boomerang Basics

At Festival Foods, we're a dedicated team of servant leaders on a mission to provide our guests with a clean store, friendly people, quality products, exceptional value and an enjoyable shopping experience. But what does that really mean in daily practice? Our 27 Boomerang Basics define how we relate to our guests, each other and our community. They're who we are and they're what drive our extraordinary success.

You'll Be a Great Addition to Festival Foods if...

You Have a Great Attitude

Attitude goes a long way. At the end of the day, Festival Foods strives to provide the best guest experience, and attitude is an important part of being a great teammate.

You Can Easily Be Yourself

Not everyone can survive and thrive in every environment. This is why the overall fit between us is so important. Speak with truth and candor and show your personality.

You Have Undeniable Passion and Energy

Passion and energy are key characteristics that make our associates successful. Not just a passion for our products and our industry, but a passion for learning and growing. What are you passionate about and how can you leverage that passion to be successful?

You're Personable and Can Easily Talk to Just About Anyone

If within 10 feet of a guest in the store, Festival Foods associates acknowledge them with a smile or a simple hello or by striking up a hearty conversation. Are you up for this?

You Enjoy Coming to Work

You don't have to put in time at work and then escape to "life" to be happy. You enjoy life and enjoy work. You feel alive and joyful not just at home but also at work. When you love your work, it's a part of your life.

You're Ready to Work Hard...and Have Fun

There isn't one associate in Festival Foods who doesn't work hard at their job, but also doesn't have fun.

You Familiarize Yourself with the Job Description

Though sort of a no-brainer, familiarizing yourself with the job description prior to an interview is good practice. It helps you prepare for what is expected of you and will give you an idea of what Festival Foods is looking for in a particular role.

You Aren't Afraid to Ask Questions in the Interview

Take this opportunity to ask questions about us, our involvement in the community and how we develop our organization and our associates. Ask us questions that are important to you! You're interviewing us just as much as we're interviewing you.
