General Clerk (Current Employee) – Maple Ridge, BC – 26 April 2017
You have the chance to learn different departments, the environment is fast-paced during the day and slow at nights. I have learned how to have really good customer service and patience while working at Save On Foods. The management is alright, and the most enjoyable part is working with friends my age.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Duncan, BC – 12 April 2017
It is always enjoyable greeting n helping customers as much I can. Helping them through the line ups quickly as I can is a must.. just know the feeling of standing in a line up. Love the experiences good or bad with the customers always a learning tool every day. I am getting close to so many of my customers to which they look for me specifically now to help them they tell me about their every day and I enjoy I am a part of their lives. :)
General Clerk meat dpt. (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 11 April 2017
working at save on was a great experience i made long lasting friends and had regular costumer to would come sometimes just to talk especially elder costumers. i liked helping around so if i had everything done in my dpt i would go to other dpts and see if they needed help or just started to help if i seen it getting busy. i enjoyed the most the costumers and building that relationship with them. i wanted to move up in the company but i overworked myself and got tendinitis on my shoulder which prevented me from doing the jobs that i usually liked the best that were fast paced and usually lifting the heavy things that other employees didn't always want to do. but in all that i learned quite a bit there was still more that i would've liked to learn.

Younger co-workers were amazing. Management needs to learn how to respect employees because they only care about the bottom line. I would not work there ever again. If you can, avoid any job at any Slave-On Foods. Also, benefits were a joke, no store discount.
A good, clean workplace for the most part. Managers and supervisors are nice and knowledgeable. Training doesn't cover a lot of what you have to know, and so you have to constantly ask questions. Typically in the restaurant we're constantly cooking wings. It gets faster and easier the farther you get into the job. You have to constantly be doing things, which is expected, but a lot of the time they understaff and you cannot take your required breaks. Management means well. They're good people. The coworkers are the best part, they're extremely hard working people. The hardest part of the job would be the fact that people, including customers, do not bother to read anything. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make foods.
Clean, nice coworkers, decently frequent demos
Frequently understaffed, long hours, no chances to take breaks
Night Crew (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 27 March 2017
I only received one day off at a time for eight months no one noticed or cared. I was scolded everyday for not going fast enough even though they would over order and I would be dripping in sweat working my butt off. After receiving the nightshift bonus for a total of one quarter they took it away saying it might come back to get us to work harder when in reality they had no intentions of brining it back. During this period the only days they would give me off were Tuesday and Thursday.
they dont care about you're life or youre scheduel
General Clerk (Current Employee) – BC – 27 March 2017
The company overall is good, the pay is decent and the benefits are good as well, however the way the company has started making some of its operational choices have caused the work enviroment to become stressful. Hour cuts have caused employees to feel rushed and overworked, and product quality is being effected as well as proper cleaning not being completed. Shifts are changed weekly and this makes managing life outside work difficult.
Good pay with steady raises, full medical coverage as well as other benefits, such as extended medical.
overworked, major hour cuts, understaffed, poor team morale, inconsistent scheduling
General Clerk (Current Employee) – Surrey, B.C – 14 March 2017
A typical day at work requires just baking and making cakes. I work in the bakery, but there is a lot of heavy lifting which I consider the hardest part of my job. Our management is consistently changing so there are new rules and regulations every time a new manager comes in. I learned that its hard to adjust to a different work condition depending on new management, but I am always willing to learn. I enjoy working with all my employees, there are many students that work part time like me. Since were all so close in age, it makes the work place more enjoyable.
This company is well managed and treats their employees with respect and thoughtfulness
Floral, Produce, and Cut Fruit Worker (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 14 March 2017
This company is pleasant to work for. They treat team members with respect, and are organized, train employees well, consider requests made for time off for doctor visits/holidays. They do not overload employees with work that cannot reasonably be accomplished during their time shift. They are prompt in keeping online information of team members working hours posted. they give raises every 500 hours. After training, they give employees respect to carry out their jobs without daily continued harassment, that has occurred in other jobs I have worked at.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 11 March 2017
Was my first official paying job, thus I learned a lot about customer service, staying active and positive, learning how to manage cash, customers and phone calls. Training went well and was thorough, lots of help was provided when needed. Was busy as a cashier and learned to be conditioned to a constant stream of work. Gained insight through conversations with customers as well as the great management team who were very caring. Overall great place to work, clean and tidy
Many positions to choose from
May be victimised to scams by customers (Happened to me)
