The Alberta Coop Grocery is currently hiring for the following positions:
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.
