Albertsons Careers & Info

Current CEO: Robert Miller

Status: Active

Albertsons Supermarket is a subsidiary of SuperValu, based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. SuperValu was ranked number five among the “Top 75 North American Food Retailers," operating over 460 stores in Florida, Southern California, Nevada, Louisiana, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Founded by Joe Albertson in 1939, Albertsons came into the supermarket scene with one store located near Boise, Idaho. It boasted shopping perks that were innovative for the times, including free parking, a money-back guarantee, and even an ice cream shop. Customers responded favorably, and soon the company was expanding into neighboring towns. One of Joe Albertson’s criteria for choosing a new location was the presence of families with small children in the area. He would drive through prospective neighborhoods and townships until he spotted an area with lots of children’s clothing hanging on neighborhood clotheslines. These were the areas that he knew were good locations for his stores.

By 1964, Albertsons had grown to 100 stores and had expanded into Seattle, Washington. In 1969, Skaggs Drug Centers joined with Albertsons to bring consumers a new concept: combination grocery/drug stores. The company experienced a huge boost from the partnership, propelling it forward into high-flying stock sales and grand-scale expansion. Further acquisitions came in the late 1990s, adding stores from Smitty’s, Super One Foods and Seessel’s Market.

Albertson’s made its largets acquisition in 1999 with the purchase of American Stores Companies. At that time, Albertsons brought on board the store labels Acme, Lucky, Jewel, and Jewel-Osco. Two pharmacy chains were also acquired: Osco Drug and Sav-on Drugs. This acquisition brought Albertsons the title “Largest American Grocery Operator” , but the title only held for a short time.

In 2004, the company began having problems. Albertsons Drug Managers filed a class action lawsuit against the company for violation of overtime laws in California. The action settled for over $2 million, making it the largest per-work week settlements in California at that time.

During the 2000’s, Albertsons began selling off some of its acquisitions, until the company was finally acquired by SuperValu and CVS in 2006. Albertsons no longer exists as a publicly traded company, but is instead a nameplate for grocery stores acquired by SuperValu. However the store is still an innovative name among supermarkets, recently introducing a new technology called Shop N'' Scan, where shoppers scan items while they shop to allow for quick and easy check-out. Some shop-from-home options also exist for Albertsons customers in some areas, utilizing the store’s web site for placing orders.

Although the store has been through many changes since its inception in 1939, the Albertsons culture still remains intact under the direction of current CEO Robert Miller. Albertsons careers are still desired in the job market, as working at Albertsons supermarket brings pay and benefits to qualified applicants. Albertsons benefits packages vary, depending on position, location and division within the company. Pharmacists and upper management positions are offered a complete and comprehensive benefits package that competes fiercely within the industry. Albertsons benefits packages are considered one of the primary perks of the company.
