Jocelyn – Deli Specialist
Proud to serve you since: 2020

“I stay at Big Y because of the people. This has been the most family-oriented company I have ever worked for in my career.

Big Y has made it easy to stay committed to the work. I have experienced loss during the pandemic. I lost my mother. Big Y is very comforting and which keeps me motivated. It is healing for me.

I am a daughter of immigrants and I know what it is to have and feel a sense of family. We have each other’s back, that is family to me. I feel included in every decision made. We are here to help each other. We are family.”



Ross - Inventory Control Supervisor
Fresh & Local Distribution Center 

Proud to serve you since: 2007

“Growing up Big Y was where I always went shopping, and I have had family members who were employees, so I have always been familiar with the Big Y culture.

I took a job in the Distribution Center and I am proud to be a part of Big Y. A great part of my job is the ability to have my voice heard and the feeling that I am making an impact in my work environment.

Big Y is full of hard workers, and it is great to be surrounded by a great team!”



Lorine – Asst Produce Sales Manager
Proud to serve you since: 1995

My favorite part of my job is that I love telling my customers what is best and in season. I love what I do and enjoy what I do.

My customers are the nicest people. I started in Deli which I enjoyed but I love Produce.

When I started it was not a women’s world; I learned the job and I learned I am capable. I rose to the challenge. Do not tell me I can’t do something…. I will succeed in my job and am willing to share what I know with others.”



Miguel – Asst Deli Sales Manager
Proud to serve you since: 2017

“My favorite part about my job is interacting with our customers and providing a positive shopping experience.

I enjoy being a part of a team and wish to make those around me better through training and development.”
