Cash Office Clerk (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – July 28, 2015
Pros: clean, regular hours, uniform
Cons: low pay, memerizing product codes
Sobeys is a comfortable environment whether it's your first job or your last. I enjoy customer service and Sobeys has great customer service policies that keep folks coming back regularly. I did not appreciate that Cash Office Clerks / Supervisors are not paid more than cashiers but work significantly harder. At times, I felt that the front-line employees were better suited for management than the actual managers. Overall, it was a humbling experience and I learned a lot.
