With a culture built on a positive, fun-loving team atmosphere, this family-owned grocery company offers its employees industry-leading wages and healthcare benefits, including 100% company-paid premiums. To qualify, employees are only required to work 22 hours a week. The company has taken their employees snowmobiling and whitewater rafting, and celebrations are an integral part of Nugget’s culture, including everyday recognitions for jobs well done and multiple annual parties at stores. It’s a testament to the company that during its 90-year history, Nugget has never had a single layoff. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
