Supervisor (Current Employee) – Acton, ON – October 1, 2015
Sobeys isn't a bad place to work. I enjoy most of the people that I work with. It has it's good and bad days. I've learned how to Supervise a fair amount of people at once usually 5-10 people each shift, Balancing the tills at the end of the night and making sure that safe is balanced every shift.
Cashier and courtesy clerk (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – September 29, 2015
this was great for my first job, the location could have been more convenient, however i stayed there for 2 years. I wanted to do something else because a friend of mine passed away there and eventually wasn't the setting i wanted to be around.
Courtesy Clerk/Cashier (Former Employee) – Calgary, Alberta – September 17, 2015
An average day at Sobeys involved mopping floors, taking care of carts, maintaining the washrooms, cleaning staff room, and various other cleaning tasks. Unfortunately for me I am a very hard worker, so i would get 6 hours worth of work done in 2 hours, instead of a positive response from the supervisors I would get snarled at to get back to work and stop being lazy. This was ultimately why I quit, total lack of respect and no recognition for my work. Other than the bad the people I worked with were what made me stay for as long as I did, it's a positive environment when you aren't being harassed by your superiors.
Night Clerk (Former Employee) – simcoe, on – September 15, 2015
A typical day of work would require me as well as the rest of the night crew to receive and spread the product, put the product up and face the store as well as many other things. I didn't see much of the management because I worked nights but the managers that i did see were pleasant. I really enjoyed the company of my co workers and the hardest part of the job was it being nights.
Front end cashier/ Floral clerk (Current Employee) – alliston – September 14, 2015
fun and enjoyable but professional workplace. Caring and supportive co-workers and management. Great employee appreciation, very welcoming and friendly staff. Managers are very friendly and very personable, they do not make you feel of any lesser importance based on your job title. overall I it is an excellent environment to work in with supportive co-workers that care about others and I'm never dreading going in for a shift.
Cashier/customer service/Front-End supervisor (Current Employee) – Alliston, ON – September 10, 2015
Sobeys has been my favorite place to work, i hate seeing myself not working there any longer. They can only give you so many hours a week and that just wasn't good enough for me. Mangers are very nice and really funny, will be missing them the most.
Bakery Manager/Head Decorator (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – September 5, 2015
the only reason to stay was for the people but after new mngm took over it became dog eat dog as we all fought for hours. If you didnt like it find a new job. I would not recommend working for Sobeys if you want a full time job. Part time got away with everything. Full time is put on 6 month contracts and you have no job security. and dont complain or you can be gone just like that
I enjoyed working at Sobeys. The management was excellent and I loved my coworkers. A typical day at this job would be scanning items, being friendly to all customers, and cleaning up before, after and during my shift.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Southbrook sobeys edmonton, Alberta – September 2, 2015
Working at sobeys for the past 4years has been very enjoyable as a part time deli clerk the job expected of me was straight forward and not too difficult. The job taught me alot about how to handle customers, variety of products and the importance of knowledge of your product. The environment was very helpful and jolly to be around. The hardest part of the job I would say is the consistency to have knowledge on the products we do provide to cater to the needs of the customers. The most enjoyable part though is how fast the shift may go because the work isn't too difficult but passes time very quickly.
repetitive job and sometimes long hours if not busy.
Seafood Department Manager (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – August 29, 2015
A typical day at Sobeys includes meeting and serving many different members of our community. Every one of those people has a different story and different needs. Getting to know these people was the best part of the job. The position involved a lot of heavy lifting(up to 75 lbs.) and although I had no problem with this, I would consider that to be the hardest part of the job. I was on the management team so I would have to say that we were a great team. We dealt with a lot of part time student employees and they stayed with us usually until they moved on the College or University so I guess they thought we were good to work with. We were like a large family here and I miss it.
