Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Sobeys part-time (More than a year)

Pros

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

Cons

No 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 Management

Get better frontline managers. Middle management micromanages too much, it doesn't work, especially long term.
