80% of the products sold at Stew Leonard’s are fresh – that is, brought in daily or prepared directly in-store – which means the company employs many skilled butchers, fishmongers, and chefs. However, there are opportunities in every department, from entry level to Team Leaders and above, including:
• Fish Cutter: cuts whole fish into steaks, filets, and other quality products according to standards and customer preference. Requires 1 to 3 years’ experience, with extensive product knowledge and ability to safely use and operate knives, scaler, mallet, and steel to sharpen knives.
• Costumed Character: wears the Wow the Cow costume and provides entertainment to customers and their children while they shop. Attend special events, as required (Halloween Trick-or-Treating, Easter Egg Hunt, Christmas Tree lighting, and birthday parties) and provide high fives and photo opportunities, at the request of the child(ren). Entry level position; no prior experience required.
• Cake Decorator: with an attention for detail, cake decorators decorate cakes, cupcakes and other desserts according to standards and customer preferences. Entry level position; no prior experience required but preferred.
• Deli Clerk: interact directly with customers at the service bars and aid by answering specific product questions, offering recommendations, packaging and pricing products ordered by customers at the service bar. Entry level position; no prior experience required.
Experience is not always necessary but a great attitude and a willingness to learn and grow is essential! Stew Leonard’s provides a host of benefits to both full-time and part-time Team Members, such as 401(k) savings and retirement, paid family and personal time, profit sharing, appreciation picnics and lunches, and a scholarship program. The company also offers many training classes, including an Emerging Leaders program and Management Training, as well as other leadership and development courses.
