Albertsons Companies

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.

Income tax Intern

May - August 2019 • Boise, ID

What I liked

I enjoyed everyone in the Income Tax department. I was able to work on a variety of assignments that were all applicable to my career goals. Albertsons was a great company to work for.

What I wish was different

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.

Advice

Be curious and ask about projects you are interested in so that you can get the most out of your internship.

Floral Manager

January 2018 • Rexburg, ID

What I liked

During this internship, I got a lot of hands-on experience. I liked the dependence the company gave me through ordering supplies and flowers, designing, and decorating displays. I was able to see the consequences of over-ordering and under orders. I got to manage major floral holidays and assign workers to come to help me. Working at a fast pace I now feel more confident in my work and feel like a far better florist.

What I wish was different

Because it is a grocery store, it isn't highly known for flowers. A lot of people downgrade my flowers just because they don't expect much. I have been working on helping the store find appreciation in flowers by not covering them with other displays and seeing how much income I bring in to the store through flowers.

Advice

I would say to be confident in yourself. Everyone works a little differently and has there own style and that is okay. That is what makes your flowers unique. And if you don't know your style it will come the more that you produce.

Cashier

January 2019 • Meridian, ID

What I liked

My coworkers are great to work with. My management team is very friendly and are always willing to work with you. Hours are good and they are very flexible with your work schedule. The atmosphere of the store is always very upbeat and positive. Overall it's a great place to work.

What I wish was different

One thing that I wish was different was that I could have a consistent schedule. My hours are all over the place and I never know what times I'm going to be working. Another thing that I wish was different was how far in advance we got our schedule. We always get our schedule only a few days before the next week. At the earliest it could be Thursday but at the latest it could be Saturday evening which sucks because you don't know what you work the next day on Sunday until late Saturday.

Advice

One piece of advice that I would share about my experience is that you have to know how to work with a team and always be willing to learn new things.

Product Development and Regulatory Affairs Intern

June - August 2019 • Dublin, CA

What I liked

Gained lots of hands on experience, in addition to attending many workshop put on by HR. There was great union between the students that were all working in different departments, and other fun intern events like going to the A's game!

What I wish was different

I wish that there was a more developed exit period; my exit felt very abrupt (partially because I had travel plans right afterwards), so I would have appreciated more assistance with transitioning out of the internship.

Advice

Network with as many colleagues in the office as possible, and get to know them and their journey of how they found their place in the food industry! I spoke to many, and they all came from different backgrounds in their pursuit to be in regulatory or food product development.

Albertsons Starbucks Barista

August 2018 • Boise, ID

What I liked

People are super cool at Albertsons. Training is well. And I've actually moved out of the Starbucks into a different department (Produce). And I am learning so much!

What I wish was different

I wish that systems were updated. Such as, I created an order form on Excel for the bulk foods area. Before that it was hand written notes in a composition notebook texted to the vendor. Now, that there is an Excel sheet on a computer I can just email the vendor and not waste paper or lose the order form because it is all in one place.

Advice

Always ask questions! No matter what. If you want to learn something or are curious about something, just ask! Managers and other employees are not intimidating to ask a question to.
