What companies offer the best super market jobs in the country?
Working for a grocery store is a great option for many people, from younger people who may be working their first job, to working people looking to pick up a second job, to retired people who want something to fill their extra time.
Grocery store employees are usually able to work a flexible schedule and are paid pretty competitive wages. There are a ton of options when it comes to the types of jobs you can get at a grocery store, from stocking positions to cashiering to management.
That being said, some grocery stores are obviously better to work for than others. That’s why WalletPop asked its readers to rate their favorite grocery stores.
The Best Grocery Stores include:
Wegmans – This popular grocery store is a consistent front-runner on Fortune’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. Based in Rochester, N.Y., Wegmans operates 75 stores throughout Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Publix – As suggested by its name, this chain of grocery stores is employee-owned, and also is consistently included on Fortune’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. The Lakeland-Fla.-based company operates 1,017 locations throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
ShopRite – This chain – with locations in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania – is operated a little differently than most others. It’s basically a co-op made up of 45 members who individually own and operate each store as part of Wakefern Food Corporation, which is based in Keasbey, N.J.
Trader Joe’s – Consumer Reports ranked Trader Joe’s as the second-best supermarket chain in the nation, falling only behind Wegmans. The Monrovia, Calif.-based company operates 341 stores throughout 27 different states and Washington, D.C.
Meijer – Considered to be a “hypermarket” store, Meijer has been named on Forbes’ list of America’s Largest Private Companies and named among the Top 75 North American Food Retailers by Supermarket News. Based in Walker, Mich., this chain operates 189 stores throughout Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio.
Now you know the best grocery stores to work for, but what stores should you avoid? WalletPop also asked shoppers what their least favorite stores are, with ACME, Shaw’s, Weis Markets, Giant Eagle, and Pathmark all making the list.
