Sobeys is only as good as your coworkers

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Having good stable co-workers leads to a great enjoyable setting, to the point of looking forward to going to work, unfortunately the moment your team is disrupted by one lazy worker, management has a tendency to take it out on the whole department, yet are too hesitant to fire anybody for misbehaving.

Coworkers are great yet management is terrible

Management constantly changing. Hours get cut if somebody doesn't like you. Your disposable even if you've literally sacrificed weeks for the store over your own personal life. Work hard to get mistreated. Oh and if you have a disability or something similar be prepared to prove it otherwise they'll cut your hours for that too. Very unprofessional. Your co-workers will keep you sane, but it about the only good part.

Points positifs

Decent breaks, good coworkers

Points négatifs

Management changes every three months. Hour cuts when you don't lick boots

Great Workplace, Great People

Working at Sobeys is like working with a family. If you respect others they respect you too. An honest and hard-working employee is always appreciated.

Workplace is fun and comfortable

I have worked at Sobeys twice in the past and both times I must say have been a good time. The management was always kind and so were the coworkers that I have personally worked with.

okay job but could have better management.

the job it itself wasn't bad but the management needs to improve. currently under staffed which makes the work load a lot more then it should be. still under staffed and should bring in new people for help around the store.

A normal grocery store to work

I would stock shelves, clean the floors and price the items. My co-workers and managers were easy to work with and there weren't many incidents during my time there. It was overall an enjoyable work experience where I was able to learn a lot as my first job.

Good first job, gets old quick and prepare to work with ignorant people

This is a good place to start as a teenager in high school looking for some cash. Front end has a lot of opportunities for different kinds of work (Cashier, Supervisor, Parcel, Demos, etc.). Hours are very flexible on front end as well and they're usually very accommodating about scheduling time off. Customers are generally friendly and will pick you out as a favourite quickly if you are good at being outgoing. Sometimes you'll be expected to do parts of your job that no one taught you properly and you'll have to speak up in order to receive the training they should have already given you. Store management can be impersonal and alienating at times, and the stores are so big that you likely won't know more than half of your co-worker's names. Names and faces change especially fast on front end. You'll likely find that some of your co-workers who work in your own or other departments will say some pretty grumpy, outdated things in the break room and even in front of customers. I've had co-workers who complained about transgender people and gone on mildly racist rants and not much was done about it. But you'll also likely have a lot of friendly, open-minded co-workers as well. Just be mindful that Sobeys workplace culture is very old-school and hierarchical.

Points positifs

Workers always recieve proper break time, very flexible with hours

Points négatifs

Little consequences for co-workers who bully/say blatantly innapropriate things, rules are inconsistent between supervisors and managers, sometimes lack of proper training

They don’t train they’re staff and don’t work as a team

They would cut my hours a lot and they Would only train me for 10 minutes.They would always seed me home most of the time when they were doing inventory. I was told that I would learn how to page someone on the phone and use the box crusher and I never did.

Points positifs

Good pay

Points négatifs

Short hours

Fun workplace

Owner is very demanding but fair. All he asks of you is to do what you are told in a timely manner. Do your job responsibly and he will reward you with wage increases. Assistant Store Manager is the worst manager I’ve ever worked for. Does not educate or train staff to understand the retail business. Gives unclear instructions to follow and constantly yelling and complaining of how stupid you are. Complains to management, coworkers and customers about staff incompetence. Belittles staff in front of staff and customers. I do not recommend this job as your first job.

Points positifs

Ample opportunities to advance

Points négatifs

Assistant Store Manager (no chance of advancement with her there)

Part time hours are great.

I am only part time and work 12 hours per week...as a retired senior it is wonderful...I work Wednesday’s and Fridays day shift as most students employed there work evenings and weekends...right now the fit for me is excellent...I am sure I could get more hours if I was interested.

Friendly environment - poor management

Co-workers are nice and easy to get along with. Manager is sometimes rude and impacient, but usually tries to be friendly. Job is safe and there's always someone willing to help.

Good experience

In a typical day at work I would show up on time and ask my manager or supervisor on shift what work needed to be done, they would give me a list of work to be done that day. I learned a lot about customer service and how to notice when someone needs help around the store. After about a month of working i knew where everything was located in the store. I worked there for 3 years and never had any problems with the management team, all my managers were very friendly with me and just wanted the best for the store. In the workplace all my coworkers were friendly but we could tell when someone did not like coming into work. The hardest part of the job was for me knowing where stuff was. I grew to learn more and more about good customer service and how to properly interact with people, I've had to deal with some rude customers but never gave in, I was a Sobeys ambassador and will remain a loyal customer even though I do not represent them anymore. I enjoyed working for them and appreciate the relationships I've built with my coworkers.

Disrespectful management

management at my store was very disrespectful to employees and did not have any concern for staff well being. Nothing for mental health other then management giving people mental health problems by telling them how to act, dress, even telling you that when your sick you cant have anyone else call in for you because its not professional. Had more mental problems since i worked there then when i started, very very bad place to work, only for students really

Terrible Management

The management was never good. Different departments were favoured. Hours were inflexible with busy schedules. The overall experience was very poor and not enjoyable.

Productive and fast paced work environment

Typical day would change into uniform and start your shift by unloading either they dairy, milk, eggs, etc. Management is very respectable and friendly.

A typical day at work

My days would start from 5pm-10pm. I was often the only person in grocery and I didn’t have much experience or training, so I had to adapt quickly and take initiative. I would help costumers if they seemed lost or couldn’t locate an item. I would always try to stay occupied, even when I was done my given tasks. On slow days I would help elderly costumers take their groceries to their cars, it was sometimes also requested by my manager.

Okay place to work

Management is okay for the most part Some weird conversations with one manager that would be deemed NSFW as well as some other employees are unprofessional and rude, but most team members are friendly. However it is difficult to get raises even with hard work and experience. Most goes unnoticed, and other employees are lazy and don’t care about their work .

Years ago it was great, im sure it still is

It was a great first part time job. Flexible hours and great staff. Work hard yet have fun. I would recommend It to anyone looking for their first job. If it paid 20 to 30 an hour, I'd still be working there haha
