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 strive to build teams that represent diversity in the broadest sense of the word and create an inclusive culture where differences are celebrated and staff are valued for their unique contributions.
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 and why we’ve recently added a new benefit of paid parental leave for the birth, adoption, or foster placement of a child. Every day, we work to create an atmosphere of caring, openness, fairness and trust, where all staff can thrive. Learn more about our progressive employment practices here.
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.
Effective February 1, 2019, we are raising our starting pay to $15 per hour. Our staff are the heart and soul of everything we do, and we’re thrilled to continue to support their growth and help our communities thrive.
