Terrible stressful
I worked at Sobeys for over 7 yrs. I loved it at first then you realize if you're not a favorite then your out of luck. I worked hard and never was reganized as such...then time passes you get stabbed in the back and then fired ....

Very busy, high paced environment.
Sobeys can be a fun place to work but the management and supervisors are terrible. Management will put you down in front of customers. Charlotte in particular is very difficult to work with. She is a micro manager, who often gets in the way of progress. Your value is underestimated and they only seem to keep employees who lack the skills required. When supervisors are allowed to swear and yell at you it's unacceptable but it happens all the time. Very unprofessional atmosphere.

It was pretty standard for a large corporate business
There were many employees and yet everybody seemed to know everybody's names, which was nice.I had to set up an appointment to ask where my tax slips were, to find they were on a website they never told me about, let alone set me up with. That was less nice and took an hour to make it so I could access my account. That was less nice.

Worst Grocery Store in The Country
All I will say is, the bigger the corporation you work for, the less they value you as a person. Don't work for Sobeys if you want your managers to manage, your supervisors to effectively supervise, or your coworkers to take you seriously. Don't work for Sobeys if you want to make enough money to live. Don't work for Sobeys if you value being your own person.

Company doesn't care
Sobeys and safeway don't care about employees. Don't waste your time. Horrible company to work for. Low pay. They try not to hire full time employees so that they can work part time employees like full timers with no benefits
