Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – November 13, 2013
Pros: very flexible hours, nice people, not very busy.
Cons: not very busy.
A typical day at work is usually very easy going. Never too busy. I did not really learn anything new as I've been a cashier before. Management was good.Co-workers were awesome. Hardest part was trying to keep busy for 8 hours when it was not busy at all. Most enjoyable part was the people I worked with and the flexibility they offered.

Demonstrator Co-ordinator (Former Employee), Maple Ridge, BC #928 – July 23, 2013
Pros: the company many times put on luncheon for the staff as a thank you
I enjoyed my job and the staff and management and co-workers were all upbeat persons and did not even think that we would lose our jobs as we did with a buy out which happened in Dec. 2012 so we had no choice other than work in another department in the store, I had one lady with me who is still looking and myself included for work in the food demonstrations – more... and wish to work in the area of Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows area on part time basis as was what we did before, the job was wonderful as we made a constant contact with the customers and after 15 years they got to be like a giant family, they loved to come in and try and not always buy but many times they would return and ask how to make something we did in the past and buy . We still see our customers in other stores and they ask when we will return and we have to tell them we are looking elsewhere and will notify them if we find work, customers were always #1 in the store and they loved the way staff assisted them...commented many times how they liked the staff in our store. Working with Save On Foods was really enjoyable - treated us with great respect and thanked us for the job we were doing. – less
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), 3000-11666 Steveston Hwy – June 24, 2013
Pros: friendly staff
Cons: no advancement
It was a simple job for students, low wage but enough to get by the small expenses for students. I worked in the Deli department. Served sandwich meat, hot food, and made salads. The job was simple, co workers were friendly, but it lacked advancement. There was no room for someone like me who wanted to show my potentials. I reached a brick wall, turned – more... around and decided to move on to a better job. I enjoyed the 3 and half years I spent at save on food, it was certainly enjoyable. – less
Seafood and meat counter person (Former Employee), Surrey BC – June 14, 2013
This is the job I loved the most working at. Meeting and talking to new people everyday. My Co-workers were the best everyone there is always happy and smiling. I would go in early just to talk to people before I started work. Miss leaving and think about everyone there all the time.
