Introduction: Come grow with us at Stew Leonard’s! We are actively opening more stores and you might be one of our next managers. The primary purpose of the Management Training for College Graduates program is to develop skilled leaders that are ready to serve in the Manager role in a given department in a new store or to backfill a position in an existing store.
About the Program: This program, over the course of 12 - 18 months, offers a paid full-time position with structured learning experiences and training. Participants will get extensive and intensive on-the-job experience within a specified department. They will have the opportunity to develop their technical skills and product knowledge and at the same time learn about our values and culture, financial measures, operations and what it means to be a Stew Leonard’s leader. Management Trainees are selected because they are self-starters, are interested in a career with Stew Leonard’s, willing to work in other locations, will relocate as needed, and they demonstrate the commitment to ongoing learning, hard work and continuous improvement.
In addition to structured on-the-job work experience, participants will progress through a series of modules that include training in aspects of Human Resources, Finance, Sales and Marketing. Modules will focus primarily on hands-on work experience and will include classroom style training sessions, one-on-one coaching, as well as mentoring with a senior executive. Participants will apply to the program via the internet and include their resume. The application process includes two short essays and multiple interviews.
- Bachelor’s degree or higher.
- Supervisor experience, or equivalent.
- Minimum grade average of C, or better.
- Willing to relocate, both for the program and/or post-graduation.
- A flexible schedule to include opening and closing shifts.

Stew Leonard’s, a family-owned and operated fresh food store founded in 1969, has six stores in Norwalk, Danbury, and Newington, CT and Farmingdale, East Meadow & Yonkers, NY. Stew’s earned its nickname, the “Disneyland of Dairy Stores” because of its country-fair atmosphere, with costumed characters and animated entertainment throughout the store that keep children entertained while parents shop. Stew Leonard’s legion of loyal shoppers is largely due to the stores’ passionate approach to customer service: “Rule #1 - The Customer is Always Right”; Rule #2 - If the Customer is Ever Wrong, Re-Read Rule #1.” This principle is so essential to the foundation of the company that it is etched in a three-ton granite rock at each store’s entrance. The company’s culture is built around an acronym for S.T.E.W.: Satisfy the customer; Teamwork gets it done; Excellence makes it better; WOW makes it fun. A family orientated company that respects the personal balance between work and family with career opportunity and growth- over 80% of our managers have been promoted from within. An equal opportunity employer who believes that diversity is about more than just physical traits, but is a celebration of cultures, experiences, opinions and life itself.
Working at Stew Leonard's is never about being a face in the crowd;
it's about joining a growing team and becoming yourself at your very best!
