Avis d'employé sur Sobeys

Not the worst, but definitely not good either

I've worked at Sobeys as a cashier and self serce operator for years. While not a particularly difficult job, it can be stressful. When it's busy, you're running around like a chicken with your head cut off. You have to think fast and independantly. Once you gey the hang of it, it's a lot easier and sometimes the quick pace is exhilarating. The customers are generally okay, save the creepy, bigoted, or combative ones. Not unusual for retail.The stress wouldn't be so bad if we had more staff, but Sobeys has cut everyone's hours the past few years and we're constantly swamped. We're expected to do two to three jobs for the price of one. It's exploitation. I don't blame my managers, more the company overall for that. If they want us to do more work, they need to pay us for it.With that said, management is pretty awful. No one is informed of policy changes beforehand so we find out when we get scolded by them or customers. Good work is rarely acknowledged and never rewarded. Bad behaviour is never punished and the responsible workers suffer for it. They rarely listen to complaints or suggestions. Nothing ever gets better, it just stays the same or gets worse. There are good moments of course but they're overshadowed by the bad for me. As things have gotten worse over the years and there's no signs of improvement, I can't in good conscience recommend people work here.The only saving grace are the good coworkers. It's a very chill, collaborative environment. Everyone helps each other when necessary. I've never once felt stupid asking someone for assistance. When it's not exploitative - 

Points positifs

Good work environment

Points négatifs

Bad management, exploitative labour practices, stressful, no real advancement opportunities

Great Work Environment

I was employed there for 8 years after High School. I made lifelong friends and made many fond memories. I don't regret the experience at all and would encourage others to apply.

okay

As well as flexible scheduling and employee discounts, working as a cashier at Sobeys provides students and part-timers with useful experience in retail operations and customer relations. Communication, money management, and problem-solving abilities are all enhanced by this position. Long stretches of standing and carrying bulky objects can make it physically taxing and repetitious, though. Managing demanding clients and the hectic atmosphere, particularly at rush hour, may be stressful. Though the compensation is frequently entry-level, it offers people looking for entry-level retail job a solid place to start.
