There are also unionized openings on the overnight crew, as well as for cashiers, porters, baggers, and home shoppers. Additionally, qualified applicants will have the opportunity to apply for roles on the company’s Asset Protection team, which helps provide a secure destination for customers to shop and associates to work, while working to continuously protect company assets.

Stop & Shop associates are proud to support their communities and work for a company that makes giving back a part of its business. For every candidate hired during the one-day hiring fair on October 23rd, Stop & Shop will make a donation* to its community partner, Goodwill, to further support its mission to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by eliminating barriers to opportunity and helping people in need reach their full potential through learning and the power of work.

“Many members of Stop & Shop’s leadership team started as part-time associates. The roles we offer at Stop & Shop are more than jobs, they are growth opportunities,” said Maria Silvestri, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Stop & Shop. “We hope that anyone who is interested in a career in an exciting work environment focused on helping their community will join us on the 23rd.”

The open, part-time positions provide up to 28 hours of work each week. Part-time employees receive competitive pay, paid training, flexible schedules, a company discount, paid time off, and career advancement opportunities. Cashiers and baggers must be at least 16 years old; all other positions require applicants to be 18 years of age or older.

Stop & Shop offers on-the-job training, cross-functional job rotation, coaching, networking, and mentoring – in addition to providing classroom training and tuition reimbursement toward business- or food industry-related higher education. 80% of Stop & Shop’s full-time associates began part-time, and through on-the-job training and mentorship have advanced their careers to full-time store employment and beyond.
