Gelson’s Markets certified as a “Great Place to Work”

Verifying its reputation as an employer dedicated to creating an outstanding employee experience, Gelson’s has received a 2022 Great Place to Work Certification™. The credential is given to qualified businesses annually by Great Place to Work®, the international authority on workplace culture since 1992.

Gelson’s currently has 2,518 employees in its 27 specialty grocery stores across Southern California. In a testament to its Great Place to Work status, 24% of Gelson’s employees have worked for the company for 20+ years; 43% have worked for the company for over a decade.

Some personal Gelson’s employee statements include:

  • Working at Gelson’s is like being with family.
  • I love the work-life balance.
  • It is a welcoming place and as soon as you walk in the door it is a positive environment.
  • All of the employees are welcoming and are inclusive of everyone. I feel at home to be myself around the customers and employees.
  • There are great opportunities for employees to grow within the company.
  • I have never worked at an establishment that is always of an uplifting, positive and compassionate level like Gelson’s.

That compassion is also seen in Gelson’s partnerships and philanthropic commitments, from a range of community events such as pet adoption days to recurring food drives, with Gelson’s donating more than $4 million in product to food banks over the last 12 months.
