Good but nothing spectacular - look elsewhere if you can

Cashier (Former Employee)

I worked at Sobeys part-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible hours
Meet some cool people
Company promotes from within (You can go from store clerk to store manager fairly easily)
Pay is reasonable

ConsNo employee discount program.
Micromanaged - middle management imposes rediculous rules on frontline managers; making your boss stressed out (not good).
High employee turnover rate

Advice to Senior ManagementGet better frontline managers. Middle management micromanages too much, it doesn't work, especially long term.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

We do not have a set pay scale,… Advice to Senior Management: My advice would be for those at head office to give us little people some slack, and maybe a little more notice to any changes… More
