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

I restocked the red and white onions, but I left a note because I couldn't find the green ones -- I didn't know that they looked different.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

The best part of working at Sobeys is working with and meeting so many different people, and teaching people about produce.

My Sobeys is...

...a new challenge and new opportunity every day.
