Raley's – Why Work For Us?

A Tradition of Excellence

Raley's History

Our founder, Tom Raley, opened his first store in Placerville, California in 1935. His dedication, hard work and vision are the seeds from which our family of stores continues to grow. 

Today, Tom Raley's family carries his legacy into a new era. Jim and Joyce Raley Teel serve as co-chairmen of the board of directors. Their children participate in the business. Together the family - along with a large and loyal family of employees - is leading Raley's into a bright new century of growth. On the way, customer service remains the priority. It's one way to show our appreciation - and it's what Tom Raley would have wanted. 

Our goal is to provide busy, health-conscientious families with delicious, easy meal ideas at an everyday value. 

Raley's has a commitment to local, fresh, sustainable food.

We would.

From the beginning, quality is what mattered to our company founder, Tom Raley. Quality people. Quality service. Quality products. It's because of that commitment to quality that his dream has grown into more than 120 stores in California and Nevada. The supermarket chains owned by Raley's include Bel Air Markets, Nob Hill Foods, Food Source and Raley's. While the stores span two states, their heart is in Sacramento where it all began -- a city that shares a reputation for quality with its friendly people, close-knit communities and excellent quality of life. 

Today, Raley's Family of Fine Stores is known for enhancing the quality of people's lives, bringing a sense of tradition, service, value, community and family with its name. Just as Tom Raley envisioned, his supermarkets have been embraced in Sacramento and beyond by being the stores with friendly employees, superior service and quality products.

    Great hours, good work environment, considerate co-workers, managers that will listen to your needs.


    Sometimes short staffed, favoritism, not great pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross training and rotating departments is a great thing. It keeps people from falling into a rut, and keeps it more interesting.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Raley's.

    Interview Details

    The position was posted on the company's jobs site. After an easy application process on the website, I was contacted by the Talent Strategy Team Leader to set up two interviews. The first interview was via phone with the Sr. Director of Labor Relations. The second interview was with the Sr. Director of Human Resources and the Human Resources Business Partner. Both interviews were very straightforward, and all questions were business related. A few days later I had a third interview with the Sr. VP of Human Resources and Labor Relations.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was in the third interview, and was, "What is the true cost of turnover." An unexpected question was, "Who was your worst boss ever?" followed immediately by, "What could you have done differently to improve the situation?"   Answer Question
