    I worked at Sobeys full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good people at store level. That's about the only pro

    Cons

    Head office has no stability, hiring district mangers that have no perishable experience, another with more human resource complaints then a store full of employees , another brought in from a company that had the exact opposite type of people management skills. Employees are just numbers. Regular staff lose their jobs but head office staff keep theirs?????
