We're hiring!

People’s is hiring for two separate positions: Grocery and Frozen Buyer and Store Keeper.  

The Department buyers are responsible for selecting, pricing, and promoting designated products; meeting objectives for sales, margin, and inventory turns; and for maintaining good relations with vendors.  

The Storekeepers are responsible for cashiering and for keeping the store safe, stocked and clean on shifts. 

Every collective manager is responsible for providing prompt, comprehensive and welcoming customer service.

Both of these are People's collective management and full time equivalent jobs and requires in-store co-management as a member of our worker collective. People’s is collectively managed, meaning that a group of 30 individuals is responsible for running our business.  This means that individual collective managers are empowered to make decisions in their departments and to share in creating the direction and culture of the workplace.  Each full-time position has more than one job description, and committee/other group work is required to manage the business. As a collective, we manage the Co-op in service to People’s member-owners and in line with the goals established by their elected stewards, the Board of Directors. In addition, the Co-op and the collective are committed to fostering human rights and social and economic justice. Making a commitment to People’s Co-management requires hard-work, personal growth, dedication, courage, compassion and flexibility. 

Each position currently being offered ranges from 32-38 hours per week with some flexibility in making your own permanent schedule. The compensation includes: $13.00/hr to start plus a fabulous benefits package: Medical & Dental Insurance (including access to Naturopathic Doctors & Acupuncturists), paid personal time off, annual raises, a 19% discount on purchases at the co-op, a Staff Benefits Exchange Program (reduced rate services from participating wellness practitioners & bike mechanics), along with an empowered work environment.

Applications are due Wednesday June 28, 2017 at 8am.  You must complete an application in order to be considered for an interview. You may submit your application via email hiring@peoples.coop, or you can drop it off at the store.  Applications submitted outside this deadline will not be considered.
