According to the KJ, Forbes Magazine has ranked Hannaford the number one employer in Maine.

It the first time Forbes has done a Best Employers By State list.  The list was generated by surveying over 80,000 full and part time employees at companies that employed at least 500 people.  Those surveyed were asked how willing they would be to recommend the business to friends or family.  They were also asked to rate other employers in their area.

Other standouts in Maine include Dollar Tree, IDEXX Industries, TD Bank, and General Dynamics.
