Worst Place Ever!!!
Hey kids do you want a job that pays well but treats you horribly and does not value its employees and only view them as slaves well then this is the job for you and your chance to get out of moms basement

Forklift Operator | Whitby, ON | Feb. 14, 2020
You are just a number
If you want to be treated like a number for minimum wage while you bust yourself unsafely to try to please management then Sobeys is the place for you

Customer Service Associate / Cashier | Richmond Hill, ON | Nov. 28, 2019
pay is low and management can be stressful
management is awful at scheduling, often not listening to days you are unavailable or asked to take off weeks in advance. The environment can be stressful sometimes.

Customer Service Associate / Cashier | Oakville, ON | Aug. 26, 2020
Avoid !
The only good thing about this job is it super flexible so if you’re a student or retired it’s great. Other than that good luck. I worked there for four years and it was the worst four years of my life you get treated like dirt and they play favorites.
ProsNone

Cashier Supervisor | Winnipeg, MB | Jul. 8, 2020
Only if theres nothing else left
Idk if itll show my wage but its 13.60 its terrible Dont work in the front end. A department of dead carcasses trying to maintain their high school prime of top dog in the social food chain. This of course applies to the entire store, though the front end is especially notorious for this for this kind of behaviour, whether it be due to the type of person being hired or the toxic environment instantiated by management. Your raises are erased by min wage increasing, more job duties for no increase in pay, conspiracy against one another to obtain more hours or just for the fun of it. Look at my hourly pay, I've been there for 5 years and had to fight to get a 50 cent bump in pay after 3 years lmao
ProsSome decent people youll meet
ConsThe entire system, you'll hate your life

Customer Service Representative | Ottawa, ON | Nov. 23, 2020
Overall a very good entry level job for young folks looking to get experience or older folks looking for some side income.
Sobeys, as a whole is a good company to work for, unfortunately the bulk of my time was during the pandemic, when people are less friendly, respectful, and patient, making the job more difficult than it should be. Paired with this is the fact that some Sobeys had owners that seemed to value customers, even the problematic ones, over supporting their employees, leading to a high turnover rate. I cannot speak for all Sobeys as I know others made sure their staff remained well supported and appreciated. It does, however, offer a lot of different skill development opportunities. Most importantly, customer service experience, as well as adaptability in a constantly changing work environment (especially during a pandemic) as well as more administrative skills if working in the front end as a supervisor or manager. The occasional lack of proper support from management and the complete disrespect from customers during this pandemic can make it difficult to do the job, but the unending support of the regular team and supervisors gets you through even the toughest patches.
ProsLarge team that is easy to get along with and can often support or cover you should you need it.
Conslack of management support when faced with difficult and impatient customers during the pandemic.

Challenging and rewarding
Typical work day in the CoE is challenging as well as rewarding, it allows one to focus on how to engage all different lines of business and develop tools and processes that will allow everyone to succeed. Working as a team the CoE has been able to achieve many milestones in a short matter of time and adopt the new processes and tools across the country.

Questions and answers about Sobeys

Why did you leave your job at Sobeys?
Asked Mar. 21, 2017
Extremely poor management. Nightmarish HR department. S**ual harassment not taken at all seriously.
Answered Jul. 31, 2020
Thickwood Sobeys is a chaotic mess, unprofessional and run by a school bully all grown up. No one is treated fairly if you are not in store manager's good books, even if you end up in her bad books you never know why as communication there is non-existent. She never tells you what you did ever. Managers seem to have their own set of rules while everyone else is supposed to follow a set of rules that changes daily so no one ever knows why they are written up, berated or yelled at. I remember hearing one employee being berated because she told a customer that we don't price match, Store Manager told said employee "never tell a customer no". There was a disagreement. When said employee asked "do we price match?", store manager said "no". Like all that drama for a simple "no". It's ridiculous. The favorites game is clearly played, one close manager basically was grooming young, female cashiers and yet he got a slap on the wrist when it violated Sobeys policy. The place is like a circus without a ring master, just a clown in charge. Don't apply there.

What would you suggest Sobeys management do to prevent others from leaving?
Asked Mar. 21, 2017
I'd tell Thickwood Sobeys management to grow up and not act like a dictator. Don't tell new employees not to listen to certain staff members you don't like. Quit playing favorites, we all know you do blatantly and obviously. Stop disrespecting your employees and treat them fairly.
Answered Jul. 19, 2020
