I worked at FreshCo for my first job for almost 4 years. The work itself was good- managers (for the most part) had reasonable expectations for what can be done in one shift. I learned a lot from my managers about the workforce which I know will be an asset to me for the rest of my life. The management was friendly and usually fair however I believe that not all of the managers had the proper training to handle certain situations (ie. customers harassing employees not being dealt with). The hardest part of the job is definitely customers- people will expect things from you and tend to get easily upset with a less than ideal answer. The issues that I had were mostly with the staff. They would pretty much hire anybody and that left me with human rights issues due to harassment. However, this incident was handled wonderfully by my store owner as well as Sobey's HR. Overall, FreshCo is a great place to work for anyone looking to gain tangible life experience as well as connect with amazing people.
good and flexible hours, ample breaks, time off, kind managers, friendly staff, manageable work
little room for growth if working part time
