The Alberta Co-op is currently hiring for the following positions:

  • Cashier
  • Grocery Worker
  • Substitute Worker


Cashier & Grocery Worker

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.  Cashiering, stocking, answering customer questions, cleaning…you’ll do it all!

Our mission is to serve as a community resource and gathering place while providing fresh, high quality, affordable food to our North and Northeast Portland communities. We emphasize products from local, organic, and socially responsible sources, and work to build connections between our customers and their farmers.

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. 

The Cashier and Grocery Worker positions are both scheduled for four 8-hour days per week. Evening and weekend availability required.  


Substitute Worker

Substitute workers support the Co-op by filling in for regularly scheduled workers on an as-needed basis. Subs should expect to work anywhere from 1-3 days a week–there’re always shifts that want filling! Cashiering will constitute the lion’s share of the work, but subs can be trained to work in every department. The ability to provide high quality customer service in a variety of capacities is the superpower we’re looking for here! Help us run a welcoming, well-stocked store for the folks in our community; keep some flexibility to your week…it’s a win win!
