At New Seasons Market, we want to be the ultimate neighborhood grocery store. But we’re more than a grocery store—we are a socially responsible, progressive company that places as much value on taking care of our staff, community and the environment as we do on providing the highest quality fresh, local food.
We build lasting relationships with staff, customers, vendors and community partners—and we’re always looking for genuinely friendly people to join our team. We strive to hire from the neighborhood, and in each store, you’ll see staff, customers, neighbors and friends sharing great food. We look for locals who love people, love food, and want to help build a community gathering place.
We made a commitment on day one to take care of our people, lead the way with progressive employment practices, and take a stand on social issues. It’s one of the reasons we were the first grocer to achieve a B Corporation certification, exceeding rigorous standards for social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. It’s why we support public policy for increasing the minimum wage. Every day, we work to create an atmosphere of caring, openness, fairness and trust, where all staff can thrive.
Our staff is the heart and soul of New Seasons: what makes us unique, fun and a little quirky. We have a people-first culture: our people are empowered to speak up, shape our culture, and be involved in decisions that affect them—a reflection of our deeply ingrained mission and values. We believe in supporting our staff to grow with New Seasons, and have an internal promotion rate of over 80% for management roles.
What’s the best thing about working at Progress Ridge? The people—like Jean-Marie who’s been here for five years—that make it (seriously) the friendliest store in town. He also LOVES seafood and veggies, both of which you’ll find aplenty at NSM.
Cheese Monger may be a better title because of how much she loves it. Being around great people committed to great food is an amazing every day experience for her. While cheese remains her first love, chicken and dumplings or anything with roasted garlic comes in a close second.
In no particular order, Joyce loves seafood and working for New Seasons. She’s been in the grocery game for years, and part of our team since 2007. And after nearly 10 years by our side, the company values—and second family—are still her favorite part of coming into work each day.
Since 2007 she’s been with us through thick and thin, learning that it really is the people that help make working with us worthwhile—and always a unique learning experience. Fun fact: an immersion blender is always her kitchen tool of choice.
