EMPLOYMENT WITH THE TURNIP TRUCK
Open since 2001, The Turnip Truck Natural Market remains East Nashville’s first and only independently owned full-service natural foods retailer. Our building once housed one of the very first H.G. Hills grocery stores in Tennessee. Throughout the years, it served several businesses and we’re proud to have brought it back to its original “roots.”
In 2010, The Turnip Truck expanded with a second store, The Turnip Truck Urban Fare, located in the heart of the bustling Gulch neighborhood. We’ve kept the same standards of excellence in providing Nashville with an independent source for local, all natural and organic products. In addition, our Gulch location feeds locals with some of the best lunch and dinner offerings anywhere. We have full hot and cold bars for salads, fresh seafood, meats, vegetarian and vegan offerings, desserts, a complete fresh juice bar, barista for our premium coffee drinks, and one of the best beer selections in Nashville.
We specialize in carrying the freshest organic produce, locally-grown when available; a large selection of premier vitamins and health supplements; locally-roasted whole-bean coffees; as well as a full line of groceries including frozen, dairy, perishable and non-perishable. No need to read labels in our store. We carry nothing with artificial ingredients… colors, chemicals, preservatives or flavors. We require our employees to take online classes and tests to learn more about our industry- from organic farming to sustainable meat and seafood.
We are looking for individuals who are eager to work. We like people with strong work ethics, who can think on their feet and foresee possible problems before they happen. We need employees with excellent customer service skills and good manners, who are also able to work with a team. Because this is a retail business, all employees are required to be available to work weekends and holidays. We have a diverse group of employees with many different interests. A large majority of our customers are regulars, sometimes shopping twice a day. We get to know them by name. We have many local vendors that deliver on a daily basis and get to work closely with them as well.
We want employees who care about food and the products we sell. Because of this, we offer a great employee discount. In addition to our employee discount, we offer paid time off and our full time employees who have worked for us for 90 days are also eligible for health care through The Turnip Truck.
