Juice bar (Former Employee) – London, ON – 17 April 2017
Sobeys is my first job which was fine in the beginning but I got sick of it really fast. My so called manager ignored my text concerning my work hours, wouldnt help me when people from work kept texting me, and tends to seem like hes annoyed with me every time i ask him a work related question. Nobody knew where the first aid kit was for the first few months of the store opening. I accidentily scraped my hand at work and one of the other managers didn't know where the first aid kit was either. A sink came apart as a fellow worker was using it and it shot water everywhere. The store is horribly managed in every way. I wouldn't suggest working here at all. At least not for very long.
Free wifi. Good break time. Generally nice people
Terrible management team. No discount. 5 piece uniform
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Dartmouth, NS – 11 April 2017
Days were long, 9 hours to be exact, i had only worked at the convenience store aspect of sobeys so overall i wouldnt go by just my review alone, however the whole structure of the company seemed stable at best, so 8/10 reccomend working for them
Cashier (Former Employee) – Bedford, NS – 11 April 2017
Micromanaged, no time to develop interpersonal relationships, repetitive, they don't recognize good customer service. Will never be a cashier again and especially not for sobeys .... seriously don't work there

Seafood Clerk, Baker, Cashier (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 10 April 2017
Sobeys was a great place to work, minus the fact of hours and advancement. I was there for 10 years and would still be there if it weren't for the stores closure. They treated their staff very well and we all felt appreciated.
Cashier and Fastlane Supervisor (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 7 April 2017
Sobeys has a benefits program and a scholarship program which is awesome, I love how involved they are with their employees. At the specific branch I am at there is a lot of gossip and people taking advantage of their "power position" unfortunately. At first I was given a lot of hours but unfortunately now everyone only has maximum 3 shifts a week and they're still continuing to hire more people on in my department. If you are looking for a second job, this place is great, but don't rely on it as an only job.
benefits and scholarship programs. Very employee oriented
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!
Cashier (Former Employee) – Drayton Valley, AB – 7 April 2017
Sobeys is a good place to work. The people there are nice and friendly caring and they care about how u are doing if u are gaving prombles out side of work they dont just say dont bring ur drama to work they well talk to u if u need to and if you really need it they will do there best to give you some time to deal with it. Its good pay good hours not to many not to little. the only thing that i didnt like is that you say something it gets around the store within the hour people love there drama and to talk and talk but nothing is ever heald on to people let stuff go easily u can be mad have an agreement one day and the next day be fine.

A typical day working at Sobeys is constantly meeting customer needs for full satisfactory. Answering calls from other branches, employees, and placing phone orders. Making sure the department is tidy and presentable. Organizing stock, logs and inventory.
MATERIALS HANDLER (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 5 April 2017
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.
