We’re Hiring for a Substitute Worker!

We’re taking applications for this position through Sunday, April 23rd!


Substitutes support the store by filling in on an as needed basis.

Substitute workers fill in for regularly scheduled workers on a one-off or semi-permanent basis. Subs should expect to work anywhere from 2-4 days a week–there’re always shifts that want filling. While Substitute Staff are not Collective Managers and therefore have no managerial responsibilities, they provide a crucial support to Co-op staff. Cashiering will constitute the lion’s share of shifts, but substitutes can be trained to work in every major department. The ability to provide high quality customer service in a variety of capacities is the superpower we’re looking for here! Help provide a clean, well stocked store for all members of our diverse N/NE neighborhoods; keep some flexibility to your week…it’s a win win!
