The bonus is subject to required withholdings.

Positions are available at all Oliver’s stores in various departments.

Oliver’s employee-owners receive such benefits as competitive wages; the ability to work in part-time or full-time positions; flexible schedules; medical, dental and vision insurance; a 401k retirement plan with an employer match; an employee stock ownership plan; a flexible spending account for medical and dependent care; employee discounts; paid time off and sick leave; regular wage increases; a safety incentive program; career development and growth opportunities; employer-paid life insurance; an employee assistance program; reduced-fare bus passes; and tuition reimbursement.
