Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 12 January 2018
Typical retail experience. It was nice to work with other cashiers who made the day go by fast. Unfortunately as a student the rules changed with how many hours had to be worked and I no longer was able to stay. I had to be available during the week, and I had classes every day so I was forced to quit, but that was my own problem.
Great work environment and management.
Lots of standing, not good for someone with plantar fasciitis.
General Clerk (Current Employee) – Newton, BC – 4 January 2018
I have worked at Save-On-Foods for almost four years. Starting at the company I worked as a cashier for months before I was cross trained into other departments. Overall the company is great with proper training, benefits, and flexible hours.
Front End Assistant/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 November 2017
excellent team members and staff. Management was alright and very understanding. Unfortunately, still only made minimum wage and it was hard to climb the ladder, however I enjoyed working there for a year.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 7 November 2017
This has been a great job so far for me as my first. I think the atmosphere at work is great with so many great coworkers, which makes the job wonderful. There seems to be always something to learn at this place.
General Clerk (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 9 October 2017
The enviroment was a great one to work in, everyone was friendly and the managers tried to make you working there fun as well as productive. Benifits were not given until 1 year of work, which wasnt what i had expected but overall good company
Florist (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 29 September 2017
Great staff but hours were too inconsistent. There wasn't much chance for advancement unless you were willing to move. Benefits weren't great unless you had full time hours which they tried to keep staff under.
Customer Service/ Cleaner (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 24 September 2017
Great job to help build work & customer service experience. I learned a lot of new things and got to know a lot of great people. Hours were good and management was always great. Good experience overall
Online Shopper (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 27 August 2017
Very nice and helpful employees. Very flexible work hours and good union benefits. All together created a very healthy and fun work environment. Would definitely recommend save on food for anyone looking for a good first job.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 28 June 2017
Generally a good place to work. Regular customer base, regular raises, decent benefits for full time employees. Transferring from one department to another is relatively easy however, advancement opportunities can be few and far between.
Regular raises and union
late shifts until 11pm, staggered days off at times.
General Store Clerk (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 25 June 2017
As a student Save On Foods was an okay first job but I would not recommend it to anyone. The online employee website really help me keep track of my schedule and book off time. The only issue was that the time I tried to book off was almost always rejected and I had to speak to managers multiple time about getting time off for important events.
General Clerk (Former Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 21 June 2017
I have worked for the company for 3 years now. I just recently quit because management treats their staff like dirt. I use to recommend this place to friends in need of a job, I will never shop or recommend Save On Foods to anyone. Management bullies and over works their workers. Do not ever recommend working for the company.
Work there on and off over the course of six months. Was psychologically gas-lit by the management team, and even had multiple managers suggest that quitting would be better than trying to fight to keep my job. You'd better never make waves if you decide to work here because the moment you do management will do what they can to get you to quit. I will never return to work at this company.
