    bad pay and the option of a increase is not offered very often. Also don't understand the management most of the time. They seem to be out of the loop of whats happening below them.

    Pros

    Good staff at Regional office. Great close relationship. Good communication with office.

    Traveling wears on you after a while. Traveling especially over weekends needs to be reimbursed per diem not just Monday thru Friday per diem.

    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 have been working at Sobeys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job. Don't recommend working here unless you need a job.

    Cons

    No employee discount, hours can and will change frequently, no say in what is going on with either the store or company

    Advice to Management

    Get a small store regional manager. Corporate pushes a bunch of policies that work great for the large stores but really hurt the smaller ones. In a small store it's hard to compete with the other local stores due to our prices being so much higher than other places.
