In addition to the sign-on bonus, all positions will have access to the benefits of the United Family like grocery discounts, college savings opportunities, insurance options and more.

Kandee Strube, regional talent manager for the Lubbock region, says United is looking to fill about 100 positions.

“Of course, we’re an essential working business, so the need for help is consistent. So, it definitely hurt us bad in 2020 and now leading into 2021. Unfortunately with COVID you know, if somebody gets it or anything, like we could have to shut down a department. So, it’s nice to have people that are crosstrained and just have that extra help right now. And plus, we’re always looking for smiling faces,” Strube said.

If you’re hired, after 30 days you’ll receive a $100 cash bonus. Then after 90 days you get an additional $150.

“This is new. We’ve been doing it since about June, but we have upped it since then coming into the holidays and school and everything being back in session,” Strube said.

Current employees can also refer a new hire and get a $100 if they stay 30 days.

Full and part-time positions are available in food service, overnight stocking and the produce department.

“As well as bakery, up front, I mean multiple positions throughout the store. There’s really not anything that we’re not looking for right now at least at one location,” Strube said.
