Name: Gus Kroos

Age: 61

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Retired unit director with H-E-B

First job: I worked at the deli counter at Giant Food Store in Rockville, Md., when I was 16.

What it taught me: That was how I got started in the grocery business. I'd say it taught me good customer service and how to deal with people. I also learned to take the good with the bad. When it came to skills, I learned food service, how to prepare and handle food.
