Albertsons Markets and Market Streets across New Mexico will hold hiring events this Friday, Aug. 19 and Saturday, Aug. 20, from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M., each day.

Applicants can either text “ABSJOBS / MARKETSTREETJOBS” to 433-00 to apply or show up at any store location for an immediate interview.

Rio Rancho has two Albertsons: one at 4300 Ridgecrest Drive, SE, and the other at 7800 Enchanted Hills Drive, NE.

In addition, Rio Rancho will soon be home to only the second Market Street in all of New Mexico at Unser Blvd. and Wellspring Avenue, in the Presbyterian Rust Medical Center area.

Although Albertsons and Market Street are hiring in all departments, those hired into food service management positions will receive a $500 sign-on bonus. Applicants who are offered jobs can begin work as early as next week. Both full-time and part-time positions are available.

Albertsons and Market Street employees are eligible for benefits, such as leadership programs, college saving opportunities, and discounts on groceries.
