I worked at Sobeys

Pros

A cohesive environment across departments, friendly co-workers.
Flexible schedules and understanding supervisors.
Provides experience for customer service in any position.

Cons

Long hours on weekends.
Very labor-intensive for grocery.
Receiving shipments can be frustrating if drivers are not on schedule and such.
Lack of another co-worker on shifts and overwork you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The work environment is very friendly, maintain that.
Managers are very understanding and do well to supervise, but it's preferable if each department manager can be more versatile in case other managers are not present.

    Pros

    great people to work with
    very easy to move up in rank
    great customer loyalty
    very secure job. you'd have to do something really bad to be fired.

    Cons

    long hours
    demanding
    some customers are hard to deal with
    pay is not the best
    scheduled hours are not the best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    proper employee training is necessary. there isn't enough focus on training new employees to execute their roles with accuracy. Listen to employees needs and desires. Overworked employees are unhappy employees = less productivity
