Jobs

The Alberta Co-op is hiring for two positions:
-Perishables Co-Buyer
-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.

The Perishables Co-Buyer is responsible for maintaining our perishables department (think: tempeh, eggs, Coconut Bliss). The position is scheduled for approximately 36 hours a week. Shifts typically begin before 7:30 AM, so you’ll need to be a bit of an early bird.

The Cashier position is scheduled for four 8 hour days per week, but you can always pick up more shifts if you’d like a fuller schedule. Shifts begin as early as 9:30 AM and end as late as 10 PM. We’ll work with you to find a schedule that feels good!
