Come Work With Us!

Cherry Republic is the best place you'll ever work. We are a rapidly growing company with lots of potential for advancement and most of our jobs are located in beautiful northern Michigan in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Our culture is quirky, our people are fun, and our dreams are big. No seriously, our dreams are huge... as in total world-domination.

We're quite partial to cherries, and we make a lot of delicious food using them. We then sell that food through our retail stores, via mailorder, and to select wholesale accounts. We even sell some cherries online, although we're still pretty sure this internet thing is just a passing fad. And we've been good enough at all that to keep the lights on for 25 years.

Perks of working here include random games of pick-up pond hockey, the occasional hike across 8 miles of ice to North Manitou Island, year-round swimming in Lake Michigan (which is so close to our HQ that you could hit it with a baseball). Oh, there might also be stuff like health insurance and 401 thingamajigs, but who cares about that?

Cherry Republic would be an equal-opportunity employer even if it wasn't required by law.
