Why Work at New Pi?

We may be biased, but we love it here.

Make an Impact, Everyday.

When you work for the Co-op you are supporting local farmers, fair compensation for goods, and the future of our community and environment. Dig a little deeper into our efforts and you’re bound to find a practice that gives you purpose and fulfillment. Whether it’s supporting good health, helping bridge the hunger-gap, or finding waste-free alternatives, there’s always something good brewing in the actions of the co-op.

Life With Balance

Your personal life is just as important as your career. Whether you’re caring for a little one or taking a safari ride across Africa (yes, our staffers are adventurous like that), we want you to feel refreshed and happy to be here.

From day one you’ll begin accruing paid personal time and vacation time (up to 3 weeks by the end of your first year).

If you work a holiday, you’ll receive premium pay + the 8 hours regular pay to boot.

New Pi is the heart of a community. We have shoppers who’ve come in weekly for over 40 years, new folks who have just discovered us, and a whole group of people in between. Working here, you’ll get to know the locals, attend Co-op events, and thrive in a food-driven culture. Be a part of a close-knit team with neighbors and friends.
