Working at Tom’s of Maine®

Sure, we've grown through the years. Today we're large enough to accomplish big goals, while still knowing the names of everyone's kids—and dogs. Our supportive, team-based environment encourages everyone to be themselves, and find creative ways to address challenges. Our employees embody our values of natural, sustainable and responsible living. Their everyday decisions affect how we run our business at every level.



At Tom's of Maine, we offer some pretty unique benefits (along with outstanding traditional ones). We believe personal wellness and community interests can go hand-in-hand with a successful work life, and we live that balance every day.

Volunteer time

All Tom's of Maine employees are encouraged to use 5% of their paid work time to volunteer in the community.

Employee wellness program

Wellness Centers

We're proud to offer our own Wellness Centers, located in both Kennebunk and Sanford, Maine. Employees enjoy a convenient place to work out and develop other aspects of a holistic fitness and wellness program. We also offer monthly on-site massages for nominal fees.

Parenting leave

We believe that the birth or adoption of a new child calls for time away from work, for mothers and fathers alike. Our benefit allows for up to three weeks of paid time off for new parents, and an additional 12 weeks of unpaid leave. Leave can be taken all at once or intermittently.

Casual dress environment

Tom's offers a dress casual environment, which helps make the workplace a comfortable place for everyone!

Summer hours

Because most of our employees live in Maine—where the summers are spectacular but short—Tom's of Maine celebrates with summer hours! This means that hours for most full-time Tom's of Maine employees are adjusted from Memorial Day to Labor Day to allow for longer weekends. (This schedule may vary slightly.) Hour changes are subject to each work area's different needs and specifications.

Green car purchase

Tom's of Maine supports innovative technologies and processes that increase fuel efficiency and lower emissions. For this reason, we provide employees with the opportunity to apply for a cash benefit to help offset the cost of purchasing a new green vehicle.

Free fruit, plus coffee, tea and spring water

Helping to keep our employees healthy is a big part of our mission, so we offer a large selection of fruit on a weekly basis.


Our Kennebunk office is dog-friendly, and most days you are likely to find two or three of our furry friends hanging out at the office!
