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

Pros

Latitude in decisions to do the right thing. Its why their customer service is so good. They do also have an accelerator program which increases ones raises and promotions.

Cons

Poor Pay, and sloppy practices related to closing/opening and distribution to stores of materials/supplies.

Advice to Management

Pay like Costco, and your employees would care even more about the business, and the competition would be blown out of the water.
