The Alberta Co-op Grocery is currently hiring for the following position:

Front End/Grocery Team Member

ACG is a collectively managed organization. This means that the workers run every aspect of the business-no boss necessary! You’ll be expected to learn the ins-and-outs of a democratic workplace and help operate the store. Being a Collective Manager means getting held to higher expectations than you would find at a normal customer service job. Serving on committees, writing and thinking critically about store policy, attending monthly staff and department meetings, and respectfully evaluating your fellow workers are just some of the responsibilities of a Collective Manager.

It will be important to have (or develop!) a passion for cooperative business and collective management. If you don’t know much about coops or collective management, we’ll teach you! Prior experience isn’t as important as an interest in having a voice in the business and enthusiasm for taking on tasks and roles that a typical grocery store wouldn’t ask of you. Self-motivation, flexibility, and the ability to work well with others are musts.

This position will be scheduled for a minimum of 24 hours/week. You must be available from 3:00 PM-11:00 PM on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Other shifts available on a one off basis for folks who are interested in working more hours.

People of color, long-term residents of N/NE Portland, immigrants, LGBTQIA+, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. We are committed to building and maintaining an equitable workplace and aim to provide our staff with ongoing training and support. The Alberta Co-op is an equal opportunity employer.

15% Discount on merchandise for worker and one other person
25% Discount on special orders
Supplements at cost

Health and dental insurance after 2 months of employment for staff working at least 28 hours/week

Please submit a completed application by Saturday, May 12th.
