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

My first day on the job was Easter Monday and it was very busy.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

The best part of working at Sobeys is the friendships I have made. I have fun every day.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

When our store had a flood we all pulled together as a team. Every employee came to help -- we even had university students come in -- which made it possible for us to reopen in two days, in time for the busy Easter weekend. I was so proud of everyone.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Sobeys is a great company to work for with lots of room for advancement.

My Sobeys is... second family; I've been with a lot of my co-workers for 25 years.
