Whole Foods is set to hire 6,000 new employees, and today is your chance to be considered for a position.

On Thursday, November 2, the company is holding a National Hiring Day where you can apply for positions online or show up at one of its stores to receive an interview.

Since Amazon bought Whole Foods, the grocer has undergone a number of changes, from lower prices to discounts for Amazon Prime members. Now, Whole Foods wants to expand its workforce. Anyone who arrives at one of its stores on November 2 will receive an interview, but the company is encouraging applicants to browse available positions at their local stores and apply online beforehand. Some applicants will receive offers on the spot.

Be wary of dairy in glass containers

If you grab milk or cream from a glass bottle, you'll be charged for the price of the bottle in addition to its contents. If you must purchase the glass bottle version of the product, be sure to bring it back to Whole Foods next time you're shopping and customer service will give you a voucher.
