you start the day by signing in on an internet connected (company provided)phone/device so that it logs your shift. proceed to your designated department and follow up on any health/safety/WHMIS procedures. you must sign out for your 30minute unpaid lunch, the staffroom is very pleasant, large table, comfy couch, television with channels, fridge and microwaves, and coffee/vending machine. the work atmosphere is great, although you do have high school kids that work there as well, sometimes they can be a little "immature" but ultimately they brighten the day. Management is very hierarchal and uses the chain of command type procedures. iv learned so much about logistics, and inventory merchandise and product placement, along with receiving and delivering products in a timely manner. most enjoyable aspect(s) about working for Save On Foods would be the cumulative efforts by fellow team members that perpetuate an efficient store, also helping elderly people with their day is great. the hardest part about the job is typically all holidays and weekends, a lot of people need an efficient grocer, and save on delivers that. Save On Foods is a union, after one year of employment you can apply for a minor benefits package, and paid sick days and acquired time off, but you need a certain level of requisition for some benefits, however. it is a great company to work for if you have 10years+ of service because of the collective agreement.
