Q & A with Peter

Peter is known for his incredible ability to make people smile and he always creates a positive environment for those around him. We are very fortunate that he chose to begin his career with Albertsons 23 years ago. We recently had the great privilege of spending some quality time with Peter and this is what we learned:

How long have you worked for Albertsons?

“I’ve worked for Albertsons for 23 years.”

What made you want to join the team 23 years ago?

“I needed a job and it was close by, but it was a great opportunity, as well.”

Can you tell me about a typical day at work in the life of Peter?

“Coming to work, enjoying my time with customers and making sure they have the best experience possible.”

What’s your absolute favorite part about the job?

“Seeing the smiles on customers’ faces and knowing that I made their day a little bit happier.”

What’s the strangest request you’ve ever had from a customer?

“The strangest request was to get an autograph on the back of their hand.”

What’s your favorite break-time snack?

“Probably going to be trail mix.”

What motivates you at work?

“Seeing the opportunity to make someone’s day better and being able to enjoy my time with customers and my co-workers.”

What makes you want to continue your career here at Albertsons?

“I enjoy the job. I enjoy what I do. It’s a lot of fun. Plus, I have great opportunities… and I have to pay the bills.”

What’s been your best experience?

“I had a great opportunity to go down to Arizona and Albertsons paid for me and my wife to go down and have some fun on top of the fact that I got to enjoy time with my bosses. They gave me the opportunity to be presented with an award and I got to meet Bob (CEO of Albertsons), which was great.”

What would you say to someone who is thinking about applying here?

“I would tell somebody it’s a great opportunity, they have great benefits, and it’s a great place to work. It’s a lot of fun and they would enjoy it.”

Has Albertsons helped you achieve your personal goals and if so, how?

“By providing me a job to be able to provide for my family, give me an opportunity to grow in my life and my personality.”

*Insert smile and lots of chuckles*
