I have been working at Sobeys

Pros

It is an okay job, I only work part time so it works out great for me and has a flexabile schedule.

Cons

Some seniors are quite rude and feel they are over powering. Lots of seniors who do not have full time work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give workers more feedback on their work and enforce positive recgonition and great coustomer service to all the dedicared shopers.

    I have been working at Sobeys

    Pros

    Great shifts, easy to get
    flexible schedules
    Friendly staff and service mantra
    can sometimes be a rewarding position--you get more praise from customers than management.
    Social club.

    Cons

    Little communication from management
    Hard work, essentially underpaid position given the job responsibility (min. wage)
    Poor benefits, zero unionization and stringent promotion policies
    Courtesy clerks responsible for much of the front end in terms of supply and cleanliness
    A lot more work than relative positions at other stores but no appropriate commensuration
    Can potentially be a dangerous job--a girl in this position was hit by a car and killed.
    Not enough workers in my position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before anything else can be done, all workers should be unionized. Higher-level positions are decent but low-end jobs are taxed heavily, some positions are somewhat understaffed. Supervisors are OK, but it can be difficult sometimes to anticipate what needs to be done and the work is quite intense. Teamwork is almost not there. The position just doesn't compete with other stores and is underpaid, however the scheduling is quite good. Did I say unionize?
