Sales Associate (Current Employee) – New Glasgow , Nova Scotia – 23 August 2013
A typical day at sobeys'Griffins it OPen from 9 in the morning to 9 at night. Only two shifts 9 to 3 or 3 to 9. What you learn is to be alway nice to the customer, You manage you day by doing your job waiting on customer cleaning the department, doing things for other department in the store, anwsering the phone, pageing people for the phone. There is No hard part to your job if you like it. And the most enjoyable part of the job is the people that you meet and talk to, and what you can learn from them.
Free lunches, free food from the bakery from time to time, free product to try from the prodouce dept.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Stittsville, ON – 21 June 2017
Probably one of the worst jobs i've ever had. Owners are morons with very odd strategies to sell product and supervising staff shows no respect to subordinates. The job itself a makes you a zombie. Come work at Sobeys if you want to be an undead doormat.
Forklift operator (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 21 June 2017
Typical day at Sobey's was full of hard work and fun. I picked up many MHE skills (reach, dock stocker, scrubber/Zamboni and end rider) It was a unionised environment and as such there were the complications you might expect between labour and management but overall it was an amicable relationship. Making labor standards was quite challenging at times and kept you fit! Loved making new friends and taking part in the many opportunities offered to socialise outside of regular work hours.

Ala Carte clerk (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 June 2017
Sobey's Ala Carte had a culture to serve everyone with respect and served everything fresh. The workplace was clean and safety was prioritized when it comes to working with an equipment. I learned to respect the idea of having a clean surrounding which makes the workplace a lot easier to work in. The management respected each individual worker.

Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – Innisfil, ON – 11 June 2017
A typical day at work at sobeys was basically the same thing every shift. The management was trash. I learned how to serve customers fast. The hardest part of the job was when it was busy. Since I was in the bakery It would be busiest in my department around big holidays.

Before I left Sobeys, in the month of February the month before i didnt get paid for 6 weeks, it was becoming increasing difficult to pay for my school supplies and when I would let one of the supervisors know he reassured me he will let one of the ladies that handles hours to put in my respective shifts and that did not happen until i told him about my financial issue.
Bakery Manager (Current Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 5 June 2017
Dedicated to providing quality food and products to their customers. My typical day as a manager is very busy but productive and rewarding. I have learned many skills within the company as I have had the opportunity to grow my skills through working in different departments and taking on new skills such as management. My management team is supportive and knowledgeable. The hardest part of my job would be working during the holiday seasons. Retail is in big demand at these times. The most enjoyable part of my job is making people happy and celebrating in their special life events
learning opportunities, food share, providing quality food choices for customers
