Viva Supermarket Has Hiring Event Saturday

Hometown Sign to Be Replaced Soon

After numerous re-paints, the front of Hometown Market--soon to be Viva Supermarket--has a classy, contemporary look that sits attractively as an anchor in that shopping center which includes CVS on one end and Round Table Pizza on the other.

Numerous attempts have been made to reach Sean Lolee, the owner of stores in Sacramento and Natomas without success, but the store appears to be opening soon. A sign that appeared today touts a hiring event this coming Saturday, 9 am to 2 pm at the store and a new 'Viva Supermarket' sign is expected to go up on the building next. 

The company philosophy is to offer the highest quality products and the lowest prices and always with exceptional customer service. In addition to the Dixon store, the company website says there are two other new stores planned to open this year in the Sacramento area.

For those interested in applying, the Viva staff says to be ready to provide previous employer information, including employment from and to dates and addresses.

One will also need to provide the following pieces of personal information: a Social Security number, employment history, and personal and professional references.

The Viva Team shares a "strong work ethic" and dedication to providing our guests with "superior service," they say and that as part of the Viva Team, one can look forward to a rewarding career with a company that is on the move.

My 16 yr old son went down there today and was told that they can only hire people 18 yrs or older. He was told it was a OSHA regulation since they have meat slicers on the premises, i thought it was kind of odd since he can apply and work at safeway which has the same meat slicers in their stores.

I wonder if having a work permit for youth from Dixon High School would have made the story different. Anyone out there know more about this?

I live near the viva on Norwood in sac. It's great and I shop there probably 3 times a week. Chinese food is the best around at the Chinese counter. Fresh tortillas made in store. Meat counter with Mexican and American cuts with good prices. Great deli counter with fresh pico, meats, potato salad and much more. Great store. And I work in Dixon so it's super convenient.
