Networking Opportunities

"Coming to this country without knowing English or much about American culture was very difficult. My first job at the age of fifteen was with Price Chopper and it totally changed my life. Teammates treated me like family and I found management to be very helpful and supportive. I started as a cart-collector and worked my way up to full-time Front End Supervisor. While I was in college I was hired as an engineering intern, which showed me all that the company had to offer. I even turned down a job with General Electric to work here and I do not regret it. I come to work each morning with a smile on my face, happy to be part of the Price Chopper family."
