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

Pros

Friendly, cool staff ( for the most part)
Great corporate atmosphere

Cons

Some levels of management were poorly run
Many of the customers are rude and inconsiderate
Disorganized department managers

Advice to Management

Given who your target employees are (people aged 16-23) there should be a larger focus on instilling great employee, management, organization skills. After all if these people see value they could be the future leaders of the company..

    Pros

    If you dont want to continue your education past high school, becoming a department manager at a sobeys isn't a terrible way to go. I chose school, but the opportunity was there for me to take a position as a seafood manager.

    Cons

    Not alot of freedom, and there are some very foolish policies handed down from head office that you MUST follow(same I'm sure with plenty of places). Experience will vary greatly from store to store.
