Lakewood, Colorado-based Natural Grocers is seeking additional employees to staff its new store slated to open Jan. 18 in McCall, Idaho.
This store, located at 209 N. 3rd St., will be Natural Grocers’ fifth location in the state. To staff it, the company invites residents of McCall and the surrounding communities to apply and join the Natural Grocers family. Positions are scheduled to start on Dec. 30.
Michelle Hines, recruiting manager for Natural Grocers, said, “We first began our search to staff this location last spring. We are thrilled to finally be coming to McCall and can’t wait to meet everyone. When you’re a Natural Grocers crew member, you are family. You’re also the day-to-day face of our company. If you love helping people and have a passion for nutrition and healthy living, you could be the perfect addition to our team.”
There are several positions available, including three cashiers, five temporary spots with potential to go long term, one grocery/dairy frozen assistant manager and one nutritional health coach. Natural Grocers employs more than 4,000 crew members at its 164 stores in 21 states.
As part of the company’s Five Founding Principles, Natural Grocers supports all employees by offering:
- Competitive pay, including the company’s Vitamin Bucks program, which provides its employees an extra $1-per-hour worked of in-store credit.
- Birthday bonus pay: equal to one day’s pay, which originated from founder Margaret Isely’s tradition of celebrating the birthdays of all employees by preparing lunch for them. Once the company became larger, her children, the current executives of the company, implemented the policy of providing each employee with a full day’s pay on their birthday.
- Company-wide store discounts and credits of up to 30 percent on all Natural Grocers’ products, provide employees with substantial savings on high-quality groceries and supplements.
- The grocer also offers comprehensive benefits packages to its full-time employees, including medical, dental and vision insurance; flexible spending and health savings accounts; short- and long-term disability and life insurance; a 401K savings plan; paid time off; and free nutrition education programs.
