Barista

March - August 2021 • Healdsburg, CA

What I liked

I liked the work environment. The training was fairly easy and manageable since this was my very first job. My experienced colleagues and trainer were very professional and kept a positive work atmosphere. I am so glad I had this job as my first job experience. It is very unforgettable. The staff was very friendly and very relaxed.

What I wish was different

I wish that the managers were a little more present in the workplace. I have witnessed about three managers come and go throughout the months I was working and I was never informed about the changes in management. I think communication is very much important between management and employees.

Advice

I would advise the newcomers to "form thick skin" and to hold their ground because there will be some customers that are very difficult, but at the end of the day, it is your job to satisfy the customer and listen to their demands. It is important to be professional and to keep your environment clean and organized, even if it was a coworker that misplaced items because integrity and stability are very important when working in foodservice.

What I liked

The internship program, the other interns, the Sourcing Department, location, and culture (in some ways).

What I wish was different

Possibly higher pay, though the pay certainly wasn't bad. I enjoyed the overall culture but it wasn't perfect.

Accounting Intern

April - August 2019 • Boise, ID

What I liked

Albertsons is a fantastic company to work for. Their corporate office has such a diverse environment. The amount of different networking and development opportunities I was exposed to was invaluable.

What I wish was different

I wish that I would have had the opportunity to spend a few days shadowing other departments. There’s a lot of great things going on in Financial Reporting and Financial Planning & Analysis that I would’ve liked to see.

Advice

Show up everyday with a desire to learn more and be better at what you do. When you show ambition and drive, it will be rewarded. Also, challenge yourself to create networking opportunities and build your network. Many people within the company are more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your goals and connect you with the right personnel.

During this internship, we had opportunity to network with other interns in the program who worked in other departments. I wish there would have been more opportunities to engage with the other interns and learn about what projects they were working on.
