Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Edson, AB – 18 February 2018
noticeable drop in personality of everyone after we had switched management. i enjoyed most of the staff and liked the department staff. a typical day went well and was usually a good amount of work without being to stressful. learned to be sociable and deal with customers in difficult situations and on occasion work in a high stress environment. Store management would occasionally yell at other staff.

I worked at Sobeys for 5 years while going to school and going to college. My coworkers were great and the job was good, I was trusted with a lot of responsibilities in that place which I am very grateful for. I however would not work there again.

Customer Service (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 December 2017
Not a good place for people that thrive. Bullying is permitted and nobody to talk to. Employees are very unhappy and favoritism is very strong. The policy is put up or get out. Zero communication. Honesty isn't managements strong point and they are very rude. It is privately owned but all this still reflects on the overall company. I will never work for another franchised sobeys again, it was the worst experience of my life. I have an enormous amount of experience in retail and this was horrible. All this is surrounding their interpersonal skills. Big ZERO. Can't keep good employees if their life depended on it !!!
Cashier (Former Employee) – Orangeville, ON – 21 December 2017
worst job ever, would not recommend working here... there are no discounts provided and the managers treated me with extreme disrespect, not to mention they didn't follow the union terms. going into work was agonizing and something i would dread doing.
Promotions Administrator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 December 2017
Enjoyed working here. Had a great team. Some of the way higher up managers were often looking over your shoulder. Every now and then another desk would be empty without an explanation as they were going through many corporate changes.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 20 December 2017
I worked in Sobeys as a cashier for more than seven months. I had a good experience working there since it taught me many new things. I admire working in Sobeys since I get an opportunity to talk to different people, that was the part I enjoyed most. During your work shift, you meet someone who is angry and screams at you. I learned that no matter how angry customer is one smile can change their attitude towards you. The environment given at workplace was just like home, employees used to help you whenever you had any problem and share their best and worst experiences. The hardest part of the job was bagging, since that was my first job, I could not put stuff properly and could not fulfill customers expectation but as time pass things got better.
