Pros

-The staff and management are super friendly

Cons

-A lot of guessing involved in what to do.

Advice to Management

Make a more standard and official training process.

    I have been working at Sobeys part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff
    Flexible schedule

    have alot of fun working there because of the employees

    Cons

    lack of training
    Lack of cleanliness for employees
    Overworked

    New employees need more training for their job. You cant expect a new employee to execute like a veteran. Sometimes you are twiddling your thumbs waiting for something to do but, more then likly your running around like a chicken with your head cut off

    Advice to Management

    Stop making the night people feel over worked. more training is needed for the standard you hold your employees at.

    I have been working at Sobeys full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wages, that's about it there.

    Cons

    Poisoned and toxic. Micro managed to death.
    Chilled warehouse (as cold as -28)
    Union there does nothing for the workers, except yield to the company at every opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of using most of your efforts into making it a hostile place to work, exert that effort into making it better and appreciating the people that make your profits possible.
