Heavy Grocery lifting jobs with Challenging Time Constaints
Material Handler @ Sobey's Food Warehouse (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 7 April 2017
Working at SOBEYS Grocery Warehouse Whitby, Ontario can be both challenging and rewarding. The heavy lifting jobs in the produce area means you have to be very healthy and have a strong back -as lifting heavy bags of onions and potatoes can be back breaking. The rewards of good pay and benefits are positive aspects of the material handling jobs - if you can handle the job pressures on a timely basis. Management could be more fair if they spread the work load out to all personnel fairly. Overall - good place to work, as pay and benefits outweigh the negatives!

Sobeys provided me with a fun work experience. I met great people and developed great relationships with individuals I still carry. Sobeys taught me and let me operate different machines that I was not very familiar with at first, but not am very comfortable to operate. Which was definitely the most enjoyable part of the job.

Cashier/Front End (Former Employee) – Kanata, ON – 4 April 2017
This was my first job when I was going through high school. at first the memorization of all of the produce products can be mind boggling, but you get the hang of it! I advanced quickly and worked at the customer service desk for a while, dealing with customers concerns and complaints, answering phone calls, selling lottery tickets etc. I learned a lot of time management skills, working on my feet, and multitasking!
Fast pace environment making customers happy by making them great food.

I have worked at sobeys for 3 years. It has been great working with such nice people, while making customers days. I have learned many customer service skills and food techniques. The hardest part of the job is when their is a meal deal and you need to keep up with the demand of high customer volume while keeping a clean and sufficient work space. My most enjoyable part of the job is making customers happy and fulfilling their needs.
Part-time Deli employee (Current Employee) – Lower Sackville, NS – 2 April 2017
Working for Sobeys in the Deli department is very enjoyable. As you get to know everyone and learn the ins and the outs, you really become part of the Sobeys family. They provide excellent training, so that you will have the tools and knowledge needed to do your job effortlessly. Sometimes it gets hectic behind the counter, between serving customers, cleaning, and, preparing food, but will the awesome staff always there to help, everything is manageable.

Front end clerk - Cashier (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 31 March 2017
No advancement unless you suck up to management. Management lies to your face to help you get trained in other areas so you can get an advancement. Work most weekends and late evening hours - when you give them an availablity list they throw it out and say they don't get one and schedule you any ways. Favourite get days, best hours, and few weekends
Front End Cashier (Former Employee) – Wallaceburg, ON – 31 March 2017
Sobeys is a good first job for high school students who need some money. I learned how to hold my temper, and how to quick math skills. A typical day at work would include clocking in, helping customers, and cleaning the front end when there is down time. I would also assist other cashiers with their customers by helping bag items, or going to get price checks. Management was nice and friendly, and would help with anything you needed. Work place culture was very friendly and accepting of new employees coming in, everyone would jump in and help train. The hardest part of the job was the constant standing, and dealing with customers who would like to belittle the cashiers if something went wrong. The most enjoyable part of the job was making new friends, and of course making money when you are in high school.
Student Work Placement (Paid with school credits) (Former Employee) – Oromocto, NB – 30 March 2017
Working as a Pharmacy Assistant (and I assume pharmacist) is an incredibly boring job. There is a lot of standing around with not much to do. When it's busy with customers it isn't so bad, but when there's no one it isn't bearable!
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 29 March 2017
This was a great place to work while I was in college. The hours were flexible and the customers were friendly as were the staff. The store had high standards for cleanliness and food and brought in good customers.

I was able to work and go to school considering the flexible hours that my manager was able to provide. It was a good experience to go through the things that I did when working at Sobeys. It developed my communication and customer service skills.
