Slave-On-Foods is a company built on lies
If you dont want to be a slave for a company that couldn't care less about its employees, then don't work here. The store managers are great, it's the money hungry pigs in head office that make this company a complete joke.
They say there's opportunities to advance within the company - lies.

They say they appreciate all the hard work we do - lies.

Essential and underpaid slaves is all you'll ever be with this company.
Pros
Easy interview, paid weekly, store managers care about staff and are very encouraging.
Cons
Head office workers are money hungry pigs

Best place to learn. The co-workers and managers are so helpful.
A friendly working environment. Most of the Co-workers are helpful. The schedule manager was too good. E-com was so stressful sometimes. I have learned to manage the customer.

Decent job
It can be a very boring job, you’re always doing the same thing. The people are usually very nice, we have a lot of regulars come in. Management is nice.

No sympathy to workers.
Very bad management. They don’t know how to take good care of their employees. There is always a shortage of staff so the other workers end up working too much in their shift.

Worst management team. Very biased toward employees.
I used to work for Save on Foods and first few weeks were great and then the new assistant manager came in who was extremely rude and very mean toward employees. Most of my colleagues quit because of the bad behavior of this particular manager. The other management personnel were okay but they didn't want to hear anything about how the assistant manager was at the wrong and always sided with him. He is very biased and if he didn't like an employee or if you try to stand up for yourself he would then toss you in the worst department ever that you specifically asked them to not schedule in.

Reliable
Save On Foods is a great place to work if you like being around people. Work is steady and reliable. They even pay an extra $2.00/hr during this CoVid 19 pandemic, which I thought was pretty decent

Productive fun workplace, once you learn the fundamentals really relaxed and straight forward.
typical day at work was relaxing and you come in with a list of things to do usually. I learned good social skills and built a better character while I worked there. Management was good they are all fun and helpful people. hardest part of the job was probably multitasking but it was all fairly straight forward and easy. most enjoyable was the co workers.

Staff was very good. New management was great.
I was part time. I would work cashier 4-6 hours per day. What I learned is company policies and procedures. When I first started management wasn't very staff oriented. He was moved up and eventually was let go. The new manager was very hands on and helpful in all ways. The hardest part of my job was to watch for people trying to get things free. The most enjoyable part of my is knowing I helped a lot of people.

people are geneally great. Benefits take a long time to kick in, but there are other benefits with working on the team
we are hiring motivated people to work during this covid crisis. Company is giving us an extra $2.00 per hour and you get another $2.00 if you work overnights (not might be suitable for high school students)!
