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.

If someone told you that you could save 15,729 trees in a year, would you do it? 

We would.

You count on us to tell you about the coolest stuff in our stores. And the yummiest recipe in 30 minutes. And how to shave with peanut butter (thanks, Joey Green!).

The inside of our magazine is printed on paper containing 80% recycled content. The covers are printed on paper containing 10% post consumer waste. Take a look.

It's In The Bag! Here's an earth-friendly idea: Use fewer grocery bags. Our stylish new reusable bags cost less than a buck.

Great People Who Care.  We truly value and connect with our customers.



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.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jackson, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raley's (Jackson, CA).


    The initial application was online, once submitted I received a phone call from the store manager for a face to face interview. Basic interview questions, nothing that really stood out. At the time of my hire I did have a felony on my record and was honest and up front about it, starting with adding that information on the online application, I was hired despite that.

    Interview Questions

    • The store manager asked me about the physical requirements of the job, making sure I could perform them I suppose but it was never flat out asked.   Answer Question
