    Pros

    Good people at store level. That's about the only pro

    Cons

    Head office has no stability, hiring district mangers that have no perishable experience, another with more human resource complaints then a store full of employees , another brought in from a company that had the exact opposite type of people management skills. Employees are just numbers. Regular staff lose their jobs but head office staff keep theirs?????

    Advice to Management

    The sobeys family needs to wake up and clean house of all their corporate dead wood .

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sobeys (Orangeville, ON (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively simple. I was brought up to the office upstairs and met with the assistant manager. It was basically about who I was as a person, my hobbies, why I wanted to work here, hours I could work and if I had any other commitments. Really all you have to do is fit their schedule needs, look responsible and speak good english.
