Our online career center shows only a list of stores/locations where there are current job openings. So, if there are no jobs open at a specific store/location, the store will not appear on the dropdown list.
Our online Career Center can notify you when a job is posted that matches criteria you’ve selected. To receive notifications, click on “myJobAgent” when you’re creating or editing your online profile.
Sometimes, information entered into the system is not properly saved. To avoid this happening to you, remember to follow these two steps:
1. After you have completed all the fields in your profile, click "CONFIRM" at the bottom of the online form. If you have completed all of the required fields, the page will refresh.
2. Scroll down to the bottom again and click "SUBMIT."
Please be sure to fill in the month, day and year for your employment dates. If you are unsure of the actual date, that’s OK. Just use the last day of the month for your start date, and the first day of the month for your end date.
On the Login page, look for the box that says “Forgot your password?” Enter your email address, and then you will be asked to answer two challenge questions, which were set up when you created your profile. Once you have correctly answered the challenge questions, you will be prompted to create and verify a new password of your choosing.
We’re sorry for any confusion. There is a brief period of time after a job posting “closes” and before the job is filled when it may not appear in your "Jobs I've Applied To" listing. However, if you received the message "Thanks for applying" onscreen, and an email message titled "Thanks for your application!" then your profile was definitely included in the applicant pool for that position.
It is not uncommon for us to receive hundreds of applications for a single position. Please regularly review and update your profile to be sure your information and the answers you have provided accurately reflect your skills and interest in the position that is posted.

To learn more about how and what we recycle, visit Our Practices in the Talk With Us section of the site. Or go to the Talk With Us section and email us with any questions you may have about how we recycle.
We have a compost bin in all of our seating areas. Compost bins are located near the bus tub station where all dishware and recycling is placed.
You can compost almost everything you consume in our stores, including:
- All food waste including meat, bones, and fruits/vegetables
- Food soiled paper and waxed "paddy" papers
- Paper coffee cups from New Seasons (we use non-plastic lined cups) and coffee cup sleeves
- To-go boxes made of wheat fiber
- To-go utensils
- Small amounts of wood like toothpicks without frills, chopsticks, coffee stir-sticks, taster spoons
The following cannot be composted at New Seasons Market:
- Anything that is not organic matter: glass, metal, potato chip bags, and plastic
- Brown paper boxes at the salad /wok bar and deli (they are lined with plastic)
- Paper soup bowls (they are lined with plastic)
- Liquids of any kind
You can recycle some of the hard-to-recycle items that aren't picked up by your curbside service with us.
Plastic lids and plastic clamshells
Rinse and drop your plastic lids and plastic clamshells at the recycling station in front of any of our stores and we'll take care of the rest. Please recycle your plastic tubs and plastic bottles (6 oz. or larger) with your paper and metal recycling collection at the curb.
We encourage you to reuse your plastic bags when you shop with us and we will credit you a nickel per bag. We also collect clean plastic bags in the recycling station in front of each store. Plastic bags are not accepted in the residential curb collection.
We'll give you a nickel credit per bag when you reuse a paper bag. Many of our customers take advantage of this great way to reduce waste: 35% of our customer transactions in 2010 included a reusable bag. Paper bags can also be recycled in your curbside recycling service and at our stores.

Regulatory guidelines do not allow us to serve food in customer containers. However, customers can bring in their own containers for purchase of bulk foods.
Here are some great resources:
A state regulatory agency that protects the quality of Oregon's environment.
A local company that processes Portland's curbside recycling materials.
A great resource for recycling of all kinds.

Our compost goes to one of three facilities to be processed; two in the Portland metro area and one in Cedar Grove, Washington.
Commercial facilities are different from a backyard compost system. The food waste is shredded, aerated, heated, cured, and then tested before being bagged and sold to customers.
Sure. There are lots of ways to do this. Metro is a great resource to get started. A few years ago, Metro rolled out yard waste collection at the curb and everyone received green roll carts. In the future, Portland households will have a curbside collection that will include organic food matter. Learn more about the City of Portland pilot program.
As of October 31, 2011, Portland residents combine food scraps including meat and bones with their yard waste for curbside service.
You don't want meat and bones in your backyard compost pile, but they are acceptable in a commercial system like we use at New Seasons Market.
The Hawthorne location was designed to operate with 25% less energy than that required by Oregon's energy code. 95% of the building materials were recycled (metal), repurposed (wood beams) or reused (concrete and asphalt). And, we became one of the first Pacific Northwest grocers to use glycol as a refrigerant instead of CFC/HCFC because it has a lower carbon footprint and is gentler to the ozone.
We participate in the reusable plastic cartons (RPC) program, and ask that our produce deliveries be packed in reusable plastic cartons. We stock the produce and save the empty containers, which are returned for cleaning and sanitation and then reused. In a lifecycle assessment the average RPC application produces 95% less total solid waste, generates 29% less greenhouse gas emissions, and requires 39% less energy than common corrugated boxes.
Yes. We purchase 15% wind power through Pacific Power and Portland General Electric's Clean Wind Renewable Power program. In 2011, 2,837,468 pounds of CO2 was avoided, the equivalent of 3,124,996 miles not driven, through our purchase of clean wind power. Learn more about Clean Wind.
