With an increase in consumer demand and high turnover rates, the grocery industry is feeling the pressure to meet customer needs while still running successful operations.
Grocery leaders need to evolve with industry demands and continue to fight for the attention of an hourly workforce with increasing opportunities for movement. Lowering barriers to entry on applications, improving time-to-hire, and streamlining the applicant experience are essential. Fulfilling staffing needs requires a robust and streamlined applicant tracking system that can keep up with a mobile-savvy clientele.
If you’re hiring in the grocery industry, you’re facing:
The food & grocery retail industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 3% through 2030
Grocery retailers are seeing up to 20% worker shortages in the stores
Recent turnover rates reached 48% for food retail workers and 29% for grocery stores’ supplier partners.

“We used to background-check every single applicant,” said the company’s operations coordinator. “With COVID-19, we had to stop and think: We’re hiring 100,000 workers per month. We cannot physically background-check every single one and then have them not work.”
