For the ninth year in a row, Abt has been recognized as one of Chicago’s Top Workplaces, according to the Chicago Tribune. The ranking is based on anonymous employee surveys, and takes into consideration a variety of factors, from tangible employee benefits to the overall sentiment of a workplace. Ask an employee why they rate Abt highly and you’ll get a range of answers: approachability of company leaders—you can walk right in and talk to the people whose name is on the building; on-site perks, from catered lunch options to the full-scale employee gym; flexible scheduling options; and an atmosphere that trusts and encourages every team member to make managerial decisions when needed.
Abt has always been a family-owned and operated company, and we want every employee to feel like they’re part of that family. We spend time with each other outside of work, from the summer family picnic to personal events like the 200-mile Ragnar Relay. And even when we’re clocked-in, we know that during the weeks of extra work leading up to our epic customer appreciation sale, it’s okay to slack off a little bit during the Halloween costume contest. Countless folks have started what they thought would be a temporary, entry-level job at Abt, and found themselves a career they love. Dozens have even found the love of their life here!
Recent successes have led to our continued expansion, and in the past few years we’ve added on over 100,000 square feet of extra warehouse space, doubled the acreage of our Glenview campus, and hired hundreds more employees. In fact, we’re currently filling positions in just about every department in the store, from computer technicians to warehouse workers.
