Macey’s Spotlight – CJ Linford

If you’ve shopped at our Spanish Fork location, you’ve probably seen CJ Linford greeting each guest with a smile. CJ is one of our front-end courtesy clerks and has been part of the Macey’s team for 13 years! He’s worked in almost every department throughout the store. He began his Macey’s career as a courtesy clerk, moved to the dairy, and joined the produce department for a bit before returning to the front-end team. Regardless of where he’s worked, CJ is always happy to help and loves talking to everyone.

Helping guests makes CJ’s day. He knows the store regulars by name and catching up with them during each visit brightens his day. He loves seeing them smile too. CJ also enjoys working with the entire Macey’s team.

“My team are my friends,” CJ said of his coworkers.

His team also considers him a good friend.

“CJ always has a positive attitude. It doesn’t matter what is happening in the store, CJ just keeps smiling,” said Bill Summers, store director at Macey’s in Spanish Fork. “He will do whatever we ask him to do. He doesn’t care if he is bagging or cleaning up a mess, he is always happy. I know that if I have a bad day, CJ will pick me up. We have CJ train our new baggers because we want his attitude to spread to all of our new team members.”
