Friendly City’s team is made up of passionate, knowledgeable and friendly people who help to make our co-op the easiest, highest quality and most welcoming place to shop for groceries in the Valley!

Join Our Team

We are making significant changes and improvements to our employee compensation – January 2020
Paying all team members, who have worked at the co-op for one year, a living wage has been the goal since the co-op first opened its doors in 2011. As of January 1st, 2019, Friendly City Food Co-op is increasing the starting wage to $11.50/hr. for all new hires and current team members that are below that benchmark, with an increase to $12.00/hr. after successful completion of a 90 day trial period. I want to know more!

Shero/Hero Pay For Our Team – June 2020
Our team has done an amazing job the past few months when life has become anything but normal. Everyone has pitched in, taken on extra duties and worked very hard – all with a smile (behind the mask, of course!).

Our gratitude for them is unending, and a little something extra in their paychecks is just one of the ways we can say “Thanks”.

You may apply at any time for full-time and part-time general staff (Team MEMBER General Application or Team LEADER Application). A Friendly City application is required for all positions. Individuals who submit a resume only will not be considered.
