Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to treat your employees as people who have lives outside of the store. If your are understaffed, hire more people because if you do you will be able to generate more income and put less stress on your overworked employees. Give them a weekend/holidays off once in a while because they deserve it for working so hard, remember they are as human as you are. Show them kindness, set up staff fun events outside of work, bring donuts for the staff room, have contests, etc. Do something to show your staff that you as the leader, respect and care about them and in return they will continue to work hard and not quit.

    I worked at Sobeys

    Pros

    Good company to work for, nice people all around, compatible benefit package and pension plan, have chance to take professional training.

    Cons

    Not easy to get promoted. Head office is in a small town. Promotions are a little haphazard (in job experience and work ethic not always a guarantee over less experienced and less qualified people)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most stores have very competent leadership and managers that genuinely care about their employees, but in some cases the management has a tendency to focus more on the job than the employee.
