Cashier (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – January 26, 2016
This is a very pleasant work environment working with customers to get their groceries through the till in a friendly atmosphere in a positive manner. It is a good company to work for and I would recommend it to anyone
Great atmosphere to work in; I learned a lot about customer service and people were friendly.
produce associate (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – January 9, 2016
typical day I would walk in, get ready for work, they would all be welcoming and friendly; and there was no complications between areas of work (Example: Between Bakery and Produce). I would go on break usually on time. Once or twice I nearly missed lunch due to a rush hour but manager was forgiving. I learned the importance of being reliable, worth ethic, how to stock properly, how to adapt to a new environment, and to ask questions. The assistant manager had some of the best costumer service skills I had ever seen. Somebody I wanted to impress. My manager made me feel like he didn't like me, but he did his job well. All co workers were friendly. Conversation easily flowed between me and whomever I was working near. Something I quite wasn't used to. I found the pace and the amount of work to be done quite hard. The most enjoyable was the atmosphere and the people I worked with.
Friendly co workers, forgiving manager, friendly customers, free food in break room, tv in break room
Long hours, fast paced, overwhelming, the rare rude customer, still not sure why I was terminated.

Positive co-workers and management very challenging everyday because there's lots of customers. Also i learned that you have to be patient to people. The most enjoyable is meeting new people everyday with smile.

General Clerk (Current Employee) – Aldergrove, BC – November 8, 2015
At Save On Foods we're like a family. For me it's a home away from home. Everyone is extremely friendly and always in a happy mood. If i'm ever feeling down I can count on the staff to turn my mood around. There's always something to do so you're always occupied, management makes sure of that. Management is absolutely amazing, always making sure everything is okay. I've learned so much through out my experience.

I learned nothing for lack of training. They said I would get part time hours which meant one 8 hour shift once biweekly (until training happened, which never did). Management does not communicate together nor do they really respect staff. The co-workers are very helpful and understanding. The hardest part of the job is keeping manager happy. The most enjoyable part is the customers. I saw on here that it was a fun, enjoyable place to work. Wow, was I wrong!
