HEAR FROM OUR ASSOCIATES
"In my 8+ years of working at AG, the professionalism of those in each department has been very much appreciated. The managers that I have worked with specifically take responsibility for what comes across their desks and expect the same from their employees. In our department, employees are given the autonomy to make decisions on several fronts based on the company’s “I own it” philosophy.
The flexibility of our managers and the teamwork of the department is appreciated not only because it affords us the opportunity to be able to volunteer within the community for causes that are close to our hearts, but also allows us to grow through multiple training opportunities throughout the year within the building. These opportunities make us stronger team members as well as giving us all the tools necessary to accomplish our work.
I would recommend AG to anyone who is interested in applying for a company that is growing, professional and treats their employees like family.

Since joining Associated Grocers of New England in 2010, not only am I surrounded by wonderful, approachable, and talented people, but I have been provided many opportunities for personal and professional development. I have made many friends and collected some great memories over the years.
AGNE truly appreciates its employees by recognizing and rewarding their efforts and performance. I am faced with exciting new challenges every day and I have the chance to think outside the box and identify new solutions while continuing to learn and grow in my role. Each day, I look forward to value working with our internal and external customers and am thankful for the strong, supportive relationship I have been able to develop with my manager.
If you want to work in good environment, you can join any place, but if you want to work in a great environment - this is the place.
I have been an employee of AG New England for 32 years, over the years I have been given the opportunity to develop and challenge myself, while advancing thru multiple positions in procurement, sales and advertising. The company provides a great benefit package, and truly cares about its associates and their families. Through the years, I have developed long lasting friendships with many of my co-workers, and although a medium to large size employer, it is truly a family atmosphere.

In the nearly forty years I have worked for Associated Grocers, I have seen many changes with the Company and our industry…but one thing that has never changed is AG’s steadfast commitment to its employees and the retailers we serve. Like so many of my fellow employees, I have been given opportunities for advancement and professional growth, and made lifelong friends along the way. While many employers offer jobs, AG offers the opportunity for a career, and the ability to truly make a difference each and every day.
Marketing & Communications,
In the 3.5 years I have been with AGNE, I have had many opportunities to develop my buying skills and industry knowledge. AGNE has enabled me to greatly boost my career with exciting and challenging opportunities including strong mentors, senior management involvement and professional development courses. At AGNE there are no limitations for growth and I’ve always been encouraged to challenge myself, improve my knowledge and develop myself.
What makes AGNE stand out is that every single employee has a stake in the company’s success, we strive for excellence in our departments and as a company and are encouraged to think outside the box to find new ways to achieve the best results for the stores we support and the partners that help make it possible.
I’m looking forward to my future at the company and I believe AGNE is an excellent organization with which to build a career.
I recently had my 1 year anniversary in July 2015, as a member of the Transportation team. I have enjoyed my travels all over New England, New York & Pennsylvania delivering groceries to all of our Co-op members & independent retailers large & small.
The Transportation Department has helped me out numerous times to make sure that I knew exactly where I was going to deliver that day or upcoming week. I'm also very thankful to Human Resources department for helping set up my exceptional benefits package that AGNE has to offer me. I'm extremely happy to be a member of the AGNE Team & Community.
When I was hired over 20 years ago my father said “AG is a good company and they will take care of you.” He was absolutely correct. I’ve had the opportunity to work with a management team who is genuinely interested in teaching and mentoring employees. I’m continually faced with new challenges and chances to think out of the box. In addition to a culture that focuses on personal growth, my team members are the best. They are always willing to assist each other and provide a supportive environment, which is priceless.
