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

I could not wrap my head around the amount of product that had to be cut for the next day.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

When I trained other people on skills and customer service and watched them to go on to succeed.

What is your favourite memory from the past 25 years?

My favourite memory was my first trip to Stellarton to see how the head office worked. It was an eye opener, seeing the other side of the business.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Work hard and get advice from the senior staff. There's always something to learn.

My Sobeys is...

...a second home, we're one big happy family. It's a special store and a great place to spread your wings and to achieve your goals.
