Hiring military and veteran associates

One of our core values is patriotism, and SpartanNash is committed to hiring military service members, veterans, their families and caregivers. We have been recognized as a Veteran Friendly® Employer for our commitment to hiring, training and retaining those who serve. We also have a Veterans Associate Resource Group that works to serve veterans in the communities where we live and work, as well as support our co-workers in their careers. Our veteran associates and their families help us attract and retain top service members. Our military and veteran associates enjoy support, networking, education, volunteerism and training.
