Associated Grocers – Why Work For Us?


From our roots in 1950 with 17 founding member stores, to our growing membership of over 200 independent retailers in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, Associated Grocers remains committed to its original goal of helping the independent grocer remain competitive.

From the simple days of just providing combined buying power to member-retailers, and now offering a full-service retail operations support and solution center including Procurement, Retail Services and Support, Information Services, Marketing, Advertising, Store Development, Retail Systems, Retail Accounting, Creative and Print Services, all tailored to member needs. We are one of the finest Retail Operations Support and Solution Centers.

Associated Grocers, Inc. was organized on May 23, 1950 with 17 member stores. The original membership consisted of grocers from old and respected business families of Baton Rouge. From its humble beginnings in 1950, Associated Grocers, Inc. quickly developed into a success for Baton Rouge and eventually the southeastern region of the United States. The association’s marketing strategy was simple, but effective. Through association buying power, member-retailers decreased the cost of goods by purchasing directly from food manufacturers.

Over the years, Associated Grocers has developed an impressive campus of warehouse and administrative buildings, including over 670,000 square feet of grocery and perishable warehouse space.
Associated Grocers has continued to build on the founding members’ vision by acquiring subsidiary companies in 2011 and 2014. Helping provide everyday solutions for its members, the companies are positioned to assist with energy efficiency and bring fresh, specialty meal solutions directly to its members.

For over 65 years, Associated Grocers has seen constant, measurable growth ensuring its vitality by enhancing technology, re-shaping the appeal of the supermarket and leaving space for expansion. Today, with over 750 full-time employees and annual sales over $675 million, Associated Grocers, Inc. is a key player in the economy of Louisiana.

Look for the Human Resources Department sign next to the main lobby entrance. Computers are located in the Human Resources lobby for individuals who do not have a personal computer with internet access. Reasonable accommodations are available upon request for applicants who may need assistance.

Associated Grocers’ commitment to ensuring that employees enjoy a balance between their work and personal lives is supported and complimented by a meaningful and affordable package of benefits.

    I worked at Associated Grocers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are either going to love this place or hate it. This is one of the most solid companies I have ever worked for. Great benefits package. Competitive pay rates. If you are willing to learn and follow directions and work hard you can make above average wages.

    Cons

    Hours are tough. They service retail grocery stores, so weekends, holidays are going to be spent working long hours. Never missed a pay increase. If you are looking for a job where you can hide from work, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient with new employees.
