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

My manager was wondering what I was doing, and I had finished the task he gave me and I was onto the next.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

The great friends I've made over the years.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

Often being asked to train employees at other stores, and participating in store openings, which I enjoy.

What is your favourite memory from the past 25 years?

When I transferred to Stratford, the staff threw a going away party and gave me a going away gift.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

It seems daunting at first, but stick with it and it becomes natural after a while.

My Sobeys is...

...a good place to work, they've been good to me over the years.
