Whistle While You Work!

At Cherry Republic we believe work should be fun! In fact, each of our Core Values touches on not only making our customers happy, but making our employees happy, as well.

So in addition to a competitive medical benefits package and your usual list of bennies (paid time off, paid holidays, 401K, etc.), we offer our staff extra perks that make our work environment a bit unique:

  • Leaf Day! We take off the 3rd Monday in October to celebrate fall in Northern Michigan!

  • Enjoy a paid ½ day off on your birthday each year. Just because.

  • No dress code! (Bob usually doesn’t wear shoes to work, so we’ll just leave it at that.)

  • Free (non-alcoholic) drinks at work. Sip coffee, tea, cherry lemonade and pop.

  • Fun events like CR family lunches, Harvest Dinner, holiday party and more.

  • Generous employee discounts (40% for FT and 25% for PT) on Cherry Republic products.

  • 40% off meals at The Grand Cafe while you’re on the clock!

  • College Match Program for students enrolled in a Michigan Education Savings Plan and meet certain requirements.
