What’s it like to work for ANNE of Green Gables Chocolates? Hear from some of our current team members:

“It’s hard to believe but this season, I will be starting my third year at AGGC.  I retired from nursing in 2021 and was looking for a part-time, stress-free environment and I found it at ANNE’s. I love meeting people, be it locals, tourists, or cruise ship passengers, each one adds something special to my day.  I absolutely love watching their reaction when trying our COW chips for the first time.  It’s priceless!  I’ve had the opportunity to work in all four locations and each is unique and special in its’ own way.  The owners, management, and fellow team members have been the absolute best.  I am thoroughly enjoying my present journey with AGGC. When they offered me the position back in the spring of 2022, I didn’t know it at the time, but I absolutely hit the jackpot!”

-Mike, Part of the “A” team since 2022

Our team is made up of hardworking and super friendly leaders and team members. They work hard to create a good working environment and I always feel fully supported and appreciated.

It’s also a wonderful feeling to spread happiness to our guests through our chocolates!”
