About Us: Karma Co-op is the city’s only co-operatively-owned (member-owned) grocery store. We just celebrated our 50th anniversary, so we’ve been doing sustainable food before it was trendy. Since we’re member-owned and a not-for-profit, our operations, product selection, and everything in between reflects our membership. We’re well-known to our community for our organic and locally sourced produce and extensive bulk and zero waste offerings. We’re looking for a special person with shared values to join our small team.
Our Purchaser/Floor Supervisor is a hands-on, active, dual-focused role. The first part of their shift will include working on the sales floor with our Produce Purchaser and member workers to maintain strong store appearance and functionality. Once the afternoon Floor Supervisor has arrived, the Purchaser/Floor Supervisor will do a hand-off with them. Then, they’ll shift their focus to purchasing and ensuring our shelves are always full with products our members love. (Since the store is closed on Mondays, they’ll also have a full day to work interpretation-free on purchasing and other tasks.)
Like many small businesses, we’ve had to become more dynamic to respond to the pandemic and changing culture. Currently, we’re looking for someone with weekday availability to work full-time Mondays to Fridays. Though, we would really appreciate a candidate who was open and adaptable to change to support us in better serving our community.
Organizational Status: The Purchaser/Floor Supervisor reports to the General Manager and Assistant General Manager and works alongside them in addition to other Floor Supervisor, Produce Purchaser, and Retail Associates.
