If you’re in the job market right now, finding a good employer is probably pretty high on your list. Sometimes it’s hard to see from the outside who would be great to work for, but if you look closely, it grows clearer. Local businesses have a vested interest in the communities they serve, and it often shows in how they treat their employees who are part of the same community.
Keeping the wheels turning
While pumping gas may not immediately spring to mind as a first choice, you might be surprised to find out that Peninsula Co-op is a great place to work. This locally owned-and-operated business cares both about the communities where they operate and their employees who keep the wheels turning for customers.
Working for Peninsula Co-op is about more than earning a wage (although those are competitive!). Whether you’re a student who needs evening and weekend shifts, or a parent working around kids’ schooling and activities or someone seeking full-time hours, Peninsula Co-op offers flexible hours to suit your busy schedule.
The future looks bright!
Co-op staff also enjoy some great incentives on top of the standard pay packet. Staff receive profit sharing and bonuses as part of their employment package along with an employer-matching pension plan to help you save for the future. Of course, planning for your future can mean getting an education, so Peninsula Co-op has a tuition-assistance program and academic awards in place to make achieving your educational goals easier and more affordable.
In addition to financial health, keeping fit plays an important part in keeping healthy and happy, Peninsula-Co-op will also cover 50 per cent of your fitness fees, up to $300! And if that wasn’t enough, staff enjoy free coffee (or Big Cool slushies) while on shift.
All about the people
“Working at Peninsula Co-op means being part of team that treats you like family — there’s more than a few reasons that it’s an award-winning place to work,” notes Lindsay Gaudette, Director of Marketing and Community Relations, pointing out that many employees are long-term because the company prioritizes people – both employees and customers.
It may be an old-fashioned idea, just like a full-service gas station in a self-service world, but Peninsula Co-op is a great place to fill up because it supports the community we share; it’s a great place to work for the same reason!
