Edmonton - Customer Care Rep (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 April 2018
I enjoyed working for Sobeys Head office but there was not a lot of room for advancement and sadly the company moved to Calgary. If I had the oppourtunity to work for corperate head office again I would
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – New Glasgow, NS – 18 March 2018
Amazing work place with lots of opportunity for improvement and promotions. Hard work is acknowledged and praised! A professional family environment is made by the supervisors and managers. Smiling and laughing is encouraged! Customer service is a main priority without compromising the staff.

It's a grocery store. They're basically all the same. If you have a good manager your job will be alright, that really depends on the store. They often try to flex with your schedule, which all minimum wage jobs should do.
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 17 March 2018
A typical day at work would be overseeing the self serve area to make sure people did not shop lift, overriding voids for other cashiers, selling lottery tickets, and scanning items. The hardest part of the job was standing up for so many hours in a row and the most enjoyable part of the job was the people i got to know while working there.
Management were terrible. Way too much favoritism. Then I had a few health issues and when I went back to work after 2 surgeries, I was never treated the same. I couldn't work for a company that treats there employees like that.
Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 13 March 2018
Was hired for Produce, but was told I was only going be in "Fresh Cut" for two weeks later found out that was untrue.
There's a huge disconnect between staff and management at this location. The employees that have been there for a few years stand around and talk to each other and basically do nothing all shift. It was very frustrating to see this because you see people working in the department you were promised not doing their jobs essentially "time stealing".
Very cliquey as well. Would avoid at all costs this location.
Too much work not enough help. Training wasn't efficient
Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Laird and Eglinton – 13 March 2018
The management here is awful if someone who's been there longer is treating as if your less than them and you speak on it they try to say that the other person been there longer so they take more into consideration what they have to say

Office clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 March 2018
Working at grocery store is fun and always you are communicating with customers and most of the time you will meet great people. Management is trying its best to help its employee but they are under the pressure of the Head office to reduce the cost and put pressure on the part time employees
