Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Rothesay, NB – 5 March 2018
Started off as a good place to work until I realised that the management was corrupt and did not follow the rules that were expected to be followed by other employees. Supervisors would take breaks when not supposed to, fellow employees engaged in eating unpaid product on a regular basis, daily cleaning was not taken seriously by some employees, taking smoke breaks when not permitted and/or on super busy times of the day. I was wrongfully terminated and when I try to get answers or try to talk to them about it they just brush it off like it nothing happened. I have contacted head office about it multiple times but they want nothing to do with it and will not provide any information. Very unprofessional workplace and would not recommend.

The staff were great people to work with. Mainly elder people or very young, teenage people. The elderly worked due to boredom at home and the teens worked because they could not find anything better while they were at school. The management was poor. Highly unprofessional management.

Sobeys is a great job with great people to work with. They take care of your needs and are very understanding. One thing I have noticed throughout my years working at Sobeys is the extended time people take on their breaks, the front end customer service advisors' talking rather than helping, random smoke breaks, and very cranky managers that will almost back talk you and make you feel stupid for something that you hadn't learnt of till that day. Training to e honest is quite bad. Bring a pad and pen. Even after my years working im still learning basic things.
Very Caring, Understanding.
High Pace, uncoodinated, you are treated like the runt when you start.

I started working here when I was only 14 years old and it was alright. I found it quite boring and the management was really rude, but the money was good and the employees got treated fairly. The hardest part of the job was having to stand in one place for hours on end.
Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 28 February 2018
Sobeys was a productive and fulfilling job to do. The time goes by quite fast since you're always doing something, and the workplace culture and atmosphere is pretty laid back and chill most times. Hardest part of the job is finishing all your jobs required as well as still making the product floor look good.

Awful place to work, managers are rude and inconsiderate, customers are worse, mundane work and inconsistent hours, don't try and work full time because unless you're a manager you can forget 40 hours a week
