Save On Foods is a pleasant place to work.
Cashier (Current Employee), Port Coquitlam, BCDecember 28, 2012
A typical day would be to process the grocery orders, bag the groceries and place them into the cart and finish the transaction by cash, debit or credit payment.
All the Management at the Port Coquitlam Save On Foods and my co-workers are the best. The hardest part of the job is when there is not very much to do during low customer times, I enjoy being as busy as possible. The most enjoyable part of the job is speaking with all the different people that I meet on any given day.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), North Delta, BCDecember 25, 2012
An awesome job to work when going through high school and post secondary. Management is very flexible with working around one's school schedule. Easy to get time off, and depending on how many hours you average a week extended medical is offered through the union.

Union job
GROCERY CLERK (Former Employee), Burnaby BCSeptember 4, 2012
Pros: job security
Cons: too many hours and short notice on change of schedule
There was always a lot of work, which was great, but there was never a consistency in schedules so even though work schedules were up weeks in advance, you had to always check it, because it changed on a daily basis. Sometimes too many times. Management was tough but the staff usually great. Union job meant job security once you were in the union.

I loved working at Save On Foods, excelent people to work with, always had staff get togethers.. and award ceremonys.. loved the atmosphere
Cashier (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCJuly 26, 2012
Pros: lunchroom overstocked with goodies
Cons: long hours standing at till
A typical day work was very quick.. It seemed like an 8 hour shift would go by so quickly, with all the interations with customers and staff. I learned to interact with others coming from a shy background. Save On Foods was where i learned how to use a till and memorize all the different codes for different produce products. I learnded how to balance and process different transactions like cheques, money orders, coupons, etc.
The hardest part of my job was leaving the day and saying good bye to my fellow cashiers each day. and of course leaving vancouver to kamloops.
The most enjoyable part of my job was again helping customers with items that they couldnt find in store, or directing them to someone who can help. General Customer Service was always a plus. I loved how they always had an outside work activity for anyone who wanted to attend.. Save on Food Soccer vs other Save on Foods in area. awards ceremonies, banquets. loved it.. and great staff.
