Here is the statement issued by Market Basket’s co-chief executives, Jame Gooch and Felicia Thornton:
“We have heard from many associates who are interested in applying for internal positons, but are concerned for their safety if they attend the scheduled Job Fair. In response to their concerns, we are making available an email address to which associates can apply. Any associate interested should send a copy of their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We understand this statement will likely generate incoming email not appropriate for this purpose, but feel associates interested in opportunity should be given an opportunity without fear of intimidation and harassment.”
