Long post regarding Albertsons...

Jun 17, 2019 21 Comments

We need to talk about this fuckery with Albertsons since every other post is about it now. People keep saying how great it is, how difficult it is to get in, and the lengths others have gone to get an offer. But here's the truth:

Albertsons should not be the end all be all; not everyone is going to make it to Albertsons AND THAT'S OKAY!

They're selective and only want the best of the best. Less than 0.01% of people get interviewed. And only 0.1% of those who are interviewed get an offer. What everyone needs to realize is that you can still have a career in computer science and software engineering even if you don't make it into Albertsons. There are other good companies out there as well (Google, facebook, etc.). These companies can pay decently and provide okay benefits. Give those a try as well!

You shouldn't sacrifice your happiness, family, and love life just for a chance to get into Albertsons. In fact getting into FANG can open almost as many doors if you're willing to take a cut in TC, wlb, benefits, quality of life, refreshers, prestige, and sexual appeal. In fact, FANG may be better than most companies (excluding Albertsons).

That's all. We need to chill the fuck out about Albertsons and realize there's more to living than getting to work there.

TLDR: Don't sacrifice your life just to chase Albertsons. Consider other good companies such as FANG.

      Classic. Another salty Googler that didn't get into Albertsons. Be happy with what you've accomplished, Google is good enough.

    I have been trying to get into Albertsons since last 10 years but they keep on rejecting me. After reading your post, I decided to move on. Thanks for this post. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    I was able to get into Albertson's pretty easy. They even opened a new checkout lane for me.
