    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.
