"Love's is a great place to build a career, and we're excited to introduce new employees to our culture," said Drew Graham, Love's director of operations.
Love's will interview job candidates onsite and give them information on working at the company. Love's is asking applicants to bring their up-to-date resumes. The company may offer jobs on the spot to qualified applicants, contingent on their successfully completing drug screening and background checks, the company said.
