    I worked at Sobeys part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, cool staff ( for the most part)
    Great corporate atmosphere

    Cons

    Some levels of management were poorly run
    Many of the customers are rude and inconsiderate
    Disorganized department managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Given who your target employees are (people aged 16-23) there should be a larger focus on instilling great employee, management, organization skills. After all if these people see value they could be the future leaders of the company..

    I have been working at Sobeys

    Pros

    If you dont want to continue your education past high school, becoming a department manager at a sobeys isn't a terrible way to go. I chose school, but the opportunity was there for me to take a position as a seafood manager.

    Cons

    Not alot of freedom, and there are some very foolish policies handed down from head office that you MUST follow(same I'm sure with plenty of places). Experience will vary greatly from store to store.
