Albertsons Companies – Why Work For Us?


About Us

In 1939, Joe Albertson, a former Safeway district manager, took $5,000 he saved and $7,500 he borrowed from his wife’s Aunt Bertie to open his first Albertsons store in Boise, Idaho. Joe knew the keys of running a really great store meant working hard for the customers: give them the products they want, at a fair price, with lots of tender, loving care.

With the merger of Albertsons LLC and Safeway, Inc. in 2015, Albertsons Companies is now one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States. The company operates more than 2,300 stores across 35 states and the District of Columbia under 19 well-known banners including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw's, Acme, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets, Pavilions, Star Market, Haggen and Carrs.

Albertsons Companies is dedicated to helping people across the country live better lives. In 2015 alone, with the help of our generous customers, Albertsons Companies and the Albertsons Companies Foundation gave more than $270 million in food and financial support to the more than 2,300 communities we serve, improving the lives of millions of people in the areas of hunger relief, education, cancer research and treatment, programs for people with disabilities, and veterans outreach.

All of our stores were founded around the philosophy of offering customers the products they wanted to buy at a fair price, with lots of tender, loving care. We still open our doors every day today with that in mind, and because of it, we run really great stores.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Albertsons Companies (Malvern, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was led into a conference room with three other people on a conference line, I was asked about my experiences based about customer care despite have informed them I had had just re entered the Job market after 12 years with the same company as a lvl 3 analyst . I was not given opportunity to present my talents for this position but instead was asked about what ifs with customers and managers. this whole process caught me off guard as I was expecting more of a tech interview with tech knowledgeable people .
