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

    Pros

    I was a grocery clerk for almost 5 years until i went off to school, it was a great highschool job to have to make some money, i also got trained to work in the garden centre every summer and to work on cash when it got busier in the store, just be open to learning new things. I learned how to deal with all kinds of customers even the grumpy ones(which was fun at times). Hours were nice and set the same every week but if i needed time off my boss was happy to give it to me and anyone else that asked. Made some good friends and learned a lot about the grocery retail business and the sobeys franchise itself. If i had stayed any longer i would have been an M.I.C. but school was my next interest.

    Cons

    Cant think of any, i had a great experience. Other than dealing with rude customers or people that liked to eat the food and leave the wrappers lying around, plus cleaning up the messes that customers made, but you get used to it tbh
