Meat Cutter (Current Employee) – Conception Bay South, NL – 13 September 2017
My experience at Sobeys is a part time position, but none the less enjoyable. Sobeys not only has allowed me to learn about different cuts of meat and how to cut them but hone my customer service skills. My co-workers are cooperative, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I enjoy getting to know the variety of people that come into the store. The hardest part of this job is that sometimes I have to deal with difficult customers, but thankfully they are few and far between. Management is flexible, approachable, and understanding.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Truro, NS – 12 September 2017
I had a great experience with the company, they were excellent to work for no matter what the circumstance was. I had a seizure while at work they were very understanding. They let me come back on modified duties when I was healthy enough to do so. Great management, great job opportunity, I enjoyed the options that I could work for in the store for example I took part in the local events that took place at the bottom of the parking lot.
2 weeks advance scheduling, family like environment, professional staff and management
Not enough hours, no discount on the store merchandise, benefits weren't good due to me being the part time
Very Fast pace setting, negative towards new employees. If you did not adapt quickly like I did, you were not appreciated.

Great starting salary, good for keeping fit. Difficult as each assignment you get is different, some make it impossible to meet the hourly quota. Sometimes workplace incidents make it difficult to meet the quota aswell.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 September 2017
Sobeys is a pleasant work environment if you're looking for a job that has a living wage for simple labor. Being a cashier there was pleasant, as I got to know the regulars and had fun interacting with people as I scanned their groceries, and was paid to do it.
Staff Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 September 2017
Good time in starting up a new store/pharmacy Loved working with the colleagues in the store and other dept's - • Worked under minimal ‘pharmacist overlap’ at a newly opened Sobeys grocery store. I helped the pharmacy grow from profiting only hundreds of dollars per day into the thousands!
A clean and easy going environment despite the high volume
Shipper/Receiver (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 5 September 2017
Sobeys day started by getting my job assignment and checking over my equipment. There were normally anywhere from 3 to 7 loads to be received or loaded in a day depending on the size of the loads or the complexity. There were always regular training sessions throughout the year for safety, machine use and whmis as well as weekly staff meetings. For the most part Sobeys was a fun place to work with approachable management staff.
Cashier - Customer Service, Cashier (Former Employee) – Alberta – 5 September 2017
Sobeys was my first job. We cleaned and helped costumers find what they were looking for. It was a lot of fun being able to work within a small department and when everything was done, you were allowed to decorate cakes.

Order Selector (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 29 August 2017
No job security for new employees.And it doesn't really matter whether you're their top performer either--If they don't like you,management will somehow find their reason to get rid of you.Hey,you can't really blame a company that lost money.
Easy, light working environment.Nothing extremely heavy to deal with.
No job security.With accident, you're at risk of being terminated.
