Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 25 July 2017
it was a great place to work .I loved my manger but a few of us took a long time to warm up to our store manger. I was attending school at the time and i had a full time position and it was hard but i tried my best.
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 24 July 2017
It was a pretty good job. Pretty flexible hours and the management isn't bad. The only thing I didn't like is the supervisors and some employees would gather in the front and visit mean while the other cashiers were all working. They were pretty selective about their group too.
Time management (Former Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 22 July 2017
I understand the importance of being a strong leader and having good communication skills. During my volunteer work for the Safety Village I developed good time management abilities and adaptability skills while interacting with kids and parents. From completing Cake Certificates I have became familiar with the basics of sales and customer service by selling my own cakes and making my own little business.
Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 July 2017
Prior to our last reorganisation, I thoroughly enjoyed my previous 6 years with this company. Great opportunity for advancement, respect for work/life balance, and investment in my future. Since acquisition of Safeway and reorganisation 2 years ago, this company is unrecognisable.
Horrible management, boring, horrible for self esteem
Deli worker (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 15 July 2017
-boring, slow, stuck at slicer slicing meat -that my personality does not fit retail -only management gets full-time hours, makes you cry, lack of understanding -neutral -how slow the time passes and the lack of respect or recognition for all the positive jobs completed -a couple friends made
lack of hours so they dont have to give you breaks
Great place for exceptional customer service practices.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Chinguacousy, ON – 13 July 2017
Working at Sobeys is quite enlightening, you get to see how things are done within a grocery store. The staff are from all walks of life. Working on the Frontend, you get first-hand experience in practicing Great customer service skills. I have learned a lot about the Canadian Culture while working there.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 July 2017
A typical day working at Sobeys when I work in grocery is moving boxes of food from the back onto the shelves, and doing three to four hours of facing per shift to ensure the store looks Organized and approachable for the consumers. When I am a cashier I stand in front of my till until I have a customer to I look welcoming and ready to provide her/him with great service. I normally ask if they have found everything they needed, if they have air miles and how their day is going. I learned for grocery everyone has to work together, if another employer comes in and does not do her/his job facing or puts items in the wrong place it makes the overall job more difficult, not allowing for the organized and clean environment Sobeys has strived for. The management is very welcoming and kind at Sobeys, the only problem I have is only getting two shifts a week, not making enough to pay for all my bills.
Deli is a great place to work if you want to be back in high school
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Simcoe, ON – 11 July 2017
At first the job was good than after awhile the drama starts and management is right in the middle of it she loves to stir the pot and start things. Has her favourites which is understandable because some work harder than others, the problem is her favourites never have to follow the rules and mostly stand around doing nothing. You can't go to the Deli manager if you have a problem and you can't go to store manger either because they are all buddies and just talk behind your back. No professionalism what so ever.
