“I got hired at Metro eighteen years ago as a store clerk. I was eventually promoted to an Assistant Category Manager in 2005. With much progress and enhancement I then moved to a Category Manager. Working at Metro has given me a sense of pride and joy. I believe Metro does a great job in defining what innovation and leadership truly means.  No matter what the challenges are our team is always able to step up and work together to surprise our customers. These outstanding outcomes come from our clear vision to grow as a business, and great sense of motivation!”

"Working at Metro was instrumental in overcoming my shyness as I dedicated myself to make a connection with each and every customer.  I love coming to work every day because we have such a fun, challenging, and rewarding atmosphere.  I take great pride in my work, and I make sure to have fun while doing it.  I never miss an opportunity to participate or attend a themed event, and I have greatly enjoyed helping to raise money for charity.  I am proud of my 31 years at Metro, and I love being part of a great team of enthusiastic and positive people who contribute to a diverse work environment."
