    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sobeys (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very simple. Can either be a group interview or individual. I had an individual interview as I knew the manager from years earlier. Very easy and light questions. Paperwork is fast and easy. First shift is a lot of information so ask questions and voice your comfort level as a cashier. Ask for a shadow if you need one. Some places give you 3 training shifts, others don't.
