please note: The PPM and the M&M positions both have multiple job descriptions, including that of Storekeeper and Collective Manager. Please review these prior to applying for those positions.
Copies of job descriptions are in the application packets below and are also available in the paper application packet that you can pick up in the store. Thanks!
Substitutes are responsible for a mixture of tasks according to what shift or department they are covering: storekeeping, stocking, produce, etc., and great customer service across all areas. We’ve included the Storekeeper and Producekeeper job descriptions in this packet as example of the kind of work that Subs cover.
The Substitute Staff position is an on-call, flexible position that is not a collective management position.
