I dream of a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
The Alberta Co-op Grocery is hiring a cashier!
ACG is a collectively managed organization. This means that the workers run every aspect of the business–no boss necessary! In addition to providing super customer service, 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 is scheduled at 30 hours a week. You’ll need to be a morning person (some shifts start at 7:30 AM) and available at least one weekend day.

20% Discount on merchandise for worker and one other person
25% Discount on special + case orders

Excellent health and dental insurance for staff working at least 28 hours/week
