WHO ARE WE?
We’re passionate about pet health and beautiful gardens; helping our customers learn; offering exceptional customer service; investing in one another. We’re a company of owners—almost every Mill staffer will become eligible for a long-term stake in Alaska Mill Feed and Garden Center within two years of joining us. But Mill Team Members think and act like owners from day one. We are down-to-earth, casual and from-the heart. We work hard, and we can be intense about doing our best. There are more than sixty of us in our retail store, distribution center, manufacturing facilities, and our administrative offices, but we share a common culture—and you can feel it!
WHY JOIN US?
Join us because: you love animals and gardening; you love helping humans; you want to work with people who care as much as you do about doing a good job; you want to be an owner of the place you work; you want your employer to care about the progression of your career and about helping you afford retirement when the time comes; we’re committed to growing our company-not growing fast, but growing well; we’re financially responsible—and because it matters even more to us to be morally responsible. And Join us because you want to build a career with a company you can love.
