Fresh from its recent acquisition by Amazon, Whole Foods is launching a hiring event to tap thousands of new employees across the U.S.

The grocery chain plans to hire 6,000 people during its National Hiring Day event on Thursday, Nov. 2.

That day, you can walk into any Whole Foods for an in-person interview and you might walk out with a job.

Yes, really.

Apply beforehand to save yourself some time at the event. You don’t need to bring a resume, but under the frequently asked questions section of the event description, Whole Foods mentions that it increases your chance of getting a job.

Ditch the suit and tie for the hiring event — Whole Foods says the dress code is casual. Nice.

Study the grocery retailer’s core values and be prepared to talk about why you would be a good fit for the company.

And finally, make sure to call your local store to find out the timeframe of the interviews and which part of the store managers will be conducting them.

So what types of jobs can you expect to find during the event?

Whole Foods Is Hiring for a Variety of Positions

Dozens of types of jobs are available at Whole Foods Market, depending on the location.

Here are just a few of the options you might find at your local store:

  • Seafood team member
  • Cook
  • Barista
  • Cashier
  • Bakery team leader
  • Grocery team member
  • Meat cutter
  • Buyer specialist

So there you have it. Fill out that application and you’re one step closer to a job at Whole Foods.

If hired, you’ll receive a 20% discount starting on your first day, as well as health and dental benefits.

And you thought Amazon would hire a bunch of robots, didn’t you?
