    Listen more to the Regional office leaders.

    I worked at Sobeys full-time (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?????

    Advice to Management

    The sobeys family needs to wake up and clean house of all their corporate dead wood .

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Management are very flexible with schedule and time if you do your job right and are always on time. Benefits are good and payment always on time.

    You may have an opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    Payment could be better for the amount of responsibility sometimes you have to deal with.

    Some co-workers just don't care about the job and, if you do care, you will ended up doing some stuff alone and overload yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice to give a raise based on experience and dedication to the company.
