A friendly, easy-going culture, great benefits, and approachable management are just a few of the reasons why Abt has been one of Chicago Tribune's Top Workplaces for seven years in a row.

Friendly,
close-knit culture

83-years after being founded, Abt is still family-owned and operated. When you come aboard at Abt, you’re not just becoming an employee, you’re joining the family. It’s why many employees have been with us for more than fifteen years.

Your voice
matters

One of the first things you’ll learn at Abt is that everyone’s opinion is valid, no matter their position. An open door policy means management is easy to approach, and eager to listen. Have a suggestion that you think could help improve Abt? We’d love to hear it.

Our pledge to the
environment

One of the cornerstones of our business approach is a strong dedication to the environment. From our sprawling rooftop solar array to our on-site recycling center, if there’s a way to make our operation friendlier to the earth, we’ll try it.

Abt has since grown to become one of the largest independent single-store appliance and electronics retailers in the country, situated on 68 acres in Glenview, IL, and employing a staff of more than 1,500 trained experts.
