by Christopher Tkaczyk
Tuesday, February 3, 2009provided by

81-year old grocery chain has been able to avoid layoffs through careful job placement and shrewd labor management.
For example, in troubled times when the company anticipates it will need fewer workers, it stops replacing employees who leave voluntarily.
To make it easier to fill gaps, store locations within 15 miles of each other share staff.
Also, employees are cross-trained: A deli clerk may also work as a bagger, allowing for more work hours, and still get the (higher) deli pay rate.

Meanwhile, the company relies on past employees (such as college students home on break) for temporary work, rather than staff up during busy times like the holidays.

I think it's better to get into a company with some loyalty to its employees, Kev, rather than just getting hired anywhere ..... assuming you have a choice of companies to work for, which is becoming increasingly rare.

If I were looking for a job, I'd take this list and heavily target any of them that might be in the area.
