Our stores are community hubs that offers a broad range of quality products, services and food.
You are passionate about people, learning new things and love adventure. Diversity and different cultures are fascinating to you. You’re a bit bored by the same thing day in and day out, and you really enjoy taking ownership of your department and driving results. You like to make a difference and you need meaning in your work. Whatever task you are performing, you are enthusiastic, lead from the front, display a strong work ethic and have the ability to manage challenging situations. As a front line leader, you have the agility and capacity to work respectfully, knowledgeably, and effectively in the communities where you not only work, but also live. Your ability to develop a deep empathy and respect for the community that you serve is critical.

You are resilient and embrace opportunities to improve the experience of your customers and fellow employees. You think outside the box; getting creative in order to get the job done.
