What do you remember most about your first day on the job?

It was my first job, and it was exciting and nerve-racking.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

I love working with vendors and stores to get products in and keep the shelves full. I am still in contact with people I have met over the years -- you get a bond and that bond gets stronger as the years go by.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

My proudest moments were being promoted over the years, thanks to the support of my supervisors in each role.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Stick with Sobeys, there is so much room for advancement.

My Sobeys is...

?inclusion. Everyone is included no matter what walk of life, what country, your background, everyone's welcome.
