Lead Checker
Distribution Center

I was looking for a new start while earning my degree from BRCC when I was hired in September of 2008 as a Part-time Quality Assurance Clerk (Label Control Clerk).  In 2010, I accepted the role of Full-time Quality Assurance Clerk where I began developing my hard work ethic.  I remained in this role until my promotion to a Checker 2 in 2012.  Then in late 2013, the company began a new “Lead Program”.  If selected for the program, the company would provide mentoring, on-the-job training, and required on-line educational courses.  I was selected and promoted in November 2013.  My lead management considers my ideas and opinions which make me feel that I am a valued team member.  I like responsibility and I am provided the opportunity to take on as much as I can handle.  In addition to my work, I am encouraged to be responsible in creating a good work/life balance since my family depends on me.

Keith Fanguy

Infrastructure Supervisor
Information Services

Just over five years ago, I realized I was not going to be able to advance while working for my previous employer.  In my role there, I accepted work tickets from a help desk but had limited contact with most users and coworkers.  Associated Grocers offered me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge and experiences.    After being hired as a Systems Administrator, I had the opportunity to work with the end user, broaden my systems knowledge and work within a team environment.  I received a promotion to Systems Engineer two years later and was given the opportunity to have greater influence over projects and do more systems design.  My second promotion came in January 2013 to the position of Infrastructure Supervisor, which I currently hold.   At the end of 2013, I was surprised and honored to receive the prestigious Crystal Apple award from Associated Grocers for outstanding service.  Due to the nature of our work in Information Services, we sometimes work long hours late at night in order to finish a project when end users are not logged in to our systems, but we have lots of fun working hard to meet the demands that come with accomplishing a goal.   We also recently enhanced the wireless capabilities on the Associated Grocers’ campus by upgrading the entire network in order to accommodate the continual growth and expansion of the company.  When we are able to complete these types of projects, our management team recognizes our hard work and appreciates the effort we put forth.  It’s nice to work for a company that is so forward-thinking and takes my input seriously.

Creative Services Supervisor
Creative Services

“When I started at AG as a Graphic Artist in 2005 it was a breeze.  My department was transitioning over to new software, which I was more familiar with than the software they were using, so that gave me a leg up on the other designers.  My main focus was on learning the grocery business.  Since my hire, I have held multiple roles.  In 2007, I was promoted to Senior Graphic Designer and within the next year promoted to Creative Services Design Specialist.  My last promotion was to Creative Services Supervisor in 2010 where I remain today.  In addition, I have earned several awards while working with AG; the Women in Media Award, Web Offset Association Excellence Aware (for designing an ad that printed well) and the prestigious Associated Grocers’ Apple Award.  Furthermore, I believe my proudest moment came when the Vice President of Sales told my husband that I was one of the hardest working people he knew.  It made me feel really good to know that someone in his position noticed my efforts.

Associated Grocers has seen many changes since my employment began.  For example, the starting pay for new hires in my department has increased.  They are better compensated for their work.  In addition, upper management recognizes my department’s hard work and dedication which was evident last year when our work load increased.  Upper management made it possible for us to obtain more employees so that we could get comfortable again and be able to spend time at home.  They really saw the effect it was having on our lives outside of AG and did all they could to make it easier.  In addition, work hours are flexible for me within my department.  My supervisor lets me come in a little later so I can take care of my motherly duties when school is in session.  During summer months I return to regular hours.  I get to work with a great team, a company that recognizes my abilities and retailers who are passionate about their businesses.”

Lead Auditor
Inventory Control

Just before my hire with Associated Grocers, I was working at Wal-Mart and looking for something different.  Some of my relatives had worked at Associated Grocers, and I knew it was a challenging opportunity.  I decided to apply myself, and I posted for the position.  I was hired August 2011 as an Auditor.  I enjoyed my role with Associated Grocers because each day offered a different challenge or something new.  I have cross trained as a Cycle Team Member, Logistics Lead and Checker.  Recently, I was promoted to Lead Auditor.  In this role the company has provided me with educational training to increase by skills and abilities.   I have been an integral team member regarding projects eliminating costs.  Associated Grocers offers opportunities to develop through education and on the job training.

Matthew Rodrigues

Senior Accountant
Finance & Accounting

I was hired in January 2012 as a Staff Accountant right after I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Southeastern.  I received support from my management team as well as good training and mentoring which solidified my experience and overall abilities to successfully complete my job functions.  I enjoyed the employee support everyone showed when workloads increased or coverage was needed.  Then in January 2014, I was promoted to the position of Senior Accountant.  In addition to recognizing my abilities, my management staff has encouraged me to pursue my CPA.

Ryan Williams

Corporate Projects Manager
Information Services

I have had several opportunities with Associated Grocers.  The first time I worked for AG I was looking for a summer job while in between semesters at LSU.  My dad suggested I check out AG. I applied to an open Auditing position, was accepted and took the job in the summer of 2007. The following summer, I again was looking for a job in between semesters and accepted the Returns Warehouseman position.  Then in 2012, I was interested in an internship for my MBA program. One of the older MBA students (who had an internship with AG) knew I had worked here before and enjoyed it, so he let me know he was leaving his intern position for a full-time job elsewhere. I applied for the Business Analyst Internship, got it, worked here through my MBA and accepted the Corporate Project Manager full-time position after graduating.

I appreciate the opportunities AG has offered me and the people I work with daily.  Our employees are some of the nicest and most intelligent people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. My teammates have made me feel that I am a welcome part of the AG family. AG has created a culture that no other company can come close to replicating. This culture is driven by the good leaders that are in place here.  There is a culture of learning here that helps everyone be successful. When you aren’t sure how something works, or where to find something, or you make a mistake there is always someone there to teach you.
