Job Description Who is this training program for?

This is an exciting and comprehensive 6 month program that culminates in the reward of an opportunity to apply for a Meat cutter position to those who successfully complete the full requirements.

What is it all about?

We continue in an exciting time within the Sobeys banner. This strategic move forward marks a significant investment for our company. As we continue to grow and deliver on our “fresh” image , we are now making another significant investment – developing more employees within our store network. The Meat Cutter in Training Program is a comprehensive program designed to take retail savvy individuals, and prepare them for a role as a Meat Cutter within our Sobeys stores. The program will run for 6 months and include a mix of in-class and in-store learning and work assignments. To help ensure your successful development, you will leave your current role / location and be immersed into a full time role as a trainee. Your training will reside primarily within the district to which you are selected, with further travel required for in-class sessions, therefore mobility is a must.

Our Commitment to you:
As a trainee, you will be mentored by leaders who will build on your retail experience and invest in your professional development. You will receive one on one training, as well as classroom sessions delivered by individuals from within our business who are highly regarded for their subject matter knowledge and experience. You will have first-hand experience in-store to practice what you have learned. We will provide you with challenging written assignments also designed to re-enforce the learning, and offer regular feedback along the way.
