    - I find it difficult to believe that sometimes they're very picky in their hiring process. Just because some people aren't used to their hiring method doesn't mean they don't deserve to be hired. Probably the worst experience I've ever experienced . Luck of diversity that's all I can say for now.

    Interview Questions

    • If you ever received a call regarding to their job interview; know that it's either a group interview but I am not sure about one on one. They'll also ask general questions to get a feel of who you are. I Had to role play given situations. Even if I did compete against many people during the group interview with all flyers that we had to pick a meal or deserts to make from it but still I didn't meet their requirements which is a joke to me and to of that at least lie to people that will be giving them a call.   Answer Question

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sobeys (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume, got a phone call from the store manager to schedule an interview a couple days later. It was one interview at the sobeys west head office, since the new store wasn't open yet.. the interview lasted about 30 minutes from what I recall. Basic questions, super general, just to get a feel for who you are. I was told I would hear back, when the decisions were made at the end of the following week.. never did, I had to chase down the manager for 3 days to try and find out what the status was, as I had other job offers.

    Deli Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ajax, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sobeys (Ajax, ON (Canada)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Had a group interview for Sobeys in their staff room. Very strange interview, it was broken into 3 parts, all mainly roll playing. One of the rolls was teaming up with another applicant, going through the weeks flyer and planning a meal...disaster. It would have been better if we could do the menu individually...and if the group interview didn't have almost 20 people. Many people didn't even have a chance to be seen or heard.

    Seafood Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Halifax, NS (Canada)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sobeys (Halifax, NS (Canada)) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Called and asked if I was still looking for work, and an interview was set up about a week later after I said yes. I was interviewed by 2 people for meat clerk, which I was not hired for, they called me another week later, asked if I still was looking for work, and offered me a job in seafood with no additional interview required. Questions were typical, "your weaknesses, a time when you handled a difficult situation, why do you want to work for sobeys" tell them what they want to hear, its a grocery store, its just a job, but they want to hear that your values are in line with the stores, and blah blah blah

    Interview Questions

    • Just behavioural questions that aren't necessary for such a basic job, "Tell me about a time you worked as part of a team. What was your role within the team, and how did you work together" Just say you were the leader and delegated to the other members, etc... Lie basically.   1 Answer
