Would be a great place to work with new management
Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – Bridgewater, NS – 20 September 2018
Not a bad place to work, but they hire more people than they can provide hours for and the management is some of the worst I've ever seen. Not a bad place to start for a first job but would not recommend to anyone out of high school looking for a career or full-time employment.
Sales Clerk (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 18 September 2018
A sales representative in the food industry. Serving peoples needs. Being polite, helpful and kind. I learned how to handle money in a fast pace setting. In the food industry, "the customer is always right" motto, so always be polite and helpful to make a sale. Management was organized, responsible and productive. The hardest part of the job is standing your ground to be polite to a cranky customer. The most enjoyable , on average most people are kind and I enjoyed serving and selling product to the public.
Front-end Cashier (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 13 September 2018
Worked at Sobeys for roughly three years and did not find it a pleasant experience. Managers are generally rude, expect you to do above and beyond but treat you with little to no respect. If you had a bad experience with a customer they were not understanding of your situation. Would not recommend anyone to work this job unless you're desperate.
Sobeys Deli Clerk (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 10 September 2018
Hours are cut all the time and departments are understaffed. Employees left feeling pressured to come into work even on off days to work. They do a good job at trying to maintain a friendly an positive work environment.
Part time bakery associate (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 5 September 2018
Poor management. Rude staff. Horrible pay. Super unreliable. I was working there while in my last year of high school as part time but the manager moved a bunch of people to starbucks when it opened and I was left to be the only one closing every single night until 10:30, even 11 sometimes. I started to fail school because when i would ask for less hours, they cut me down to one shift a week. When i asked for more hours they gave me full time hours with only two days off every week. It was very inconsistent. I ended up having to quit because of this.
