The Monrovia, California-based grocer is known not only for its GMO-free wares, fair pricing, and island style; it's also considered a decent place to work.

According to the company website, the company offers eligible crew members medical, dental, and vision coverage as well as a paid time-off plan, a retirement plan, and a 10 percent discount on everything in the store.

Plus, of course, there's the benefit of wearing a Hawaiian shirt and shorts to work every day instead of that jacket and tie your boss makes you wear at the office (even though you have absolutely no contact with the outside world from your cubicle).
