Food City is hosting a hiring event for the Knoxville Division from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, 2024, at all Knoxville area Food City locations.

We have recently opened several new stores and expanded others, along with the continued growth of our curbside pick-up and in-store food service options, such as to-go meals. These events have resulted in the creation of a number of new area jobs – both full- and part-time.

The company is planning to hire over 500 friendly, smiling faces in key customer and food service positions at area stores. The positions range from entry-level to experienced, skilled positions, such as meat cutter, cake decorator and retail management.

Food City is a family owned and operated company that offers a generous benefits package to its associates including competitive salaries, comprehensive training, healthcare coverage with medical and dental plans, 401(k) with a 3% company match, vacation accrual, vision coverage, company paid life and disability plans, and Employee Stock Ownership Plan. In addition, Food City also offers advancement opportunities to associates who wish to progress within a growing company.

Interested candidates can apply online at, text “FCJOBS” to 85000, or visit any Food City store to complete an application. Make plans to attend the event at your local Food City to find out how Food City is so much more than a grocery store.
