Ross, a General Manager, started working for Lunds & Byerlys 35 years ago as a Grocery Carryout in high school.
“It’s been a great career,” Ross says. “A great place to work. I’ve learned how to treat people, both customers and employees. I’ve been able to work in all areas of the store. I’m able to come to work every day and make a difference, either with an employee or a customer, or something in the community.”
Many employees compare working at Lunds & Byerlys to being part of a family. Ross agrees: “There have been times when people have needed things here – my employees going through a hard time, etc. – and everyone jumps in to help that person out as if they were your own family. The customers are like family, too. We share stories with them about their families and watch their kids grow up.”
Ross started college while working at Lunds & Byerlys, but quit school mid-way through. Thanks to the Lunds & Byerlys tuition reimbursement program, he was able to go back to college 30 years later and complete his degree.
