Employee Brittany Demes used a Nugget scholarship to attend college, while moving from a job as a bag handler to become a human resources assistant for this California-based supermarket. “It was incentive to keep going,” said Demes. Nugget is also one of only a handful of companies in the industry that pays 100% of insurance premiums for associates. And if part-time employees work 22 hours a week, they’re eligible for the same comprehensive health care plan enjoyed by Nugget’s CEO.
