Save on Foods selected this as a representative review
Save-on-Foods is a good place to work with good opportunity for advancement. They offer competitive wages, great benefits, and a friendly atmosphere.My co-workers were good to work with, and several became good friends.
Everyone was quite kind to each other, and the managers were understanding, shifts could get very busy and hectic, but I never felt particularly stressed, just had my hands full.
Encouraging work space.
They are driven by the rules of the union and are strict with amount of hours they give. Scheduler is childish and will give you bad hours if you complain. Even if you are willing to work more they won't give you hours. They often change schedule after its been posted, sometimes multiple times, so it is hard to schedule life events. Some people are hard to work with, others are very nice. They appreciate people with a good work ethic.
It was a joy to work at Save On Foods in South Surrey, as a cashier, and seeing my dearest friends from Wendy's Restaurant that I use to work at, and they came to see me which was a nice surprise, and the hardest of being a cashier was to do the check an customer gave you do that stuff on the back of it, and also people that smelled like pot couldn't stand the smell, and had to get another employee to take over for me. Was sure nice to meet different cultures in this world that we all live in.
While working at save on foods I made a lot of new friends since everyone there is quite nice. But the management is not the best. They don’t really care about there workers and there life’s. They care more about the company. Working with people I can call my friends was the best part because we got to talk while get our work done. Though it was stressful coming in everyday because you never really know what to expect from the managers that day.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
The hardest part of the job is working on cash with difficult customers. The management can sometimes be unreasonable and not always understanding from their staffs point of view. It is a very clique filled company, you sometimes feel like you can't trust anyone.
Mostly friendly staff
Not always following your schedule restrictions, sometimes unreasonable management
I learned a lot of different things Dealt with money Customers Closing my departments What I like the most was being a cashier The hardest part was the meats because I wasn’t use too but I did it at the end because I got use too it. The management was awesome All the employees were awesome
When you're new, you pretty much only get the closing shifts for a long time until you get some seniority and even then it's not guaranteed you'll get any day shifts. They WILL call you to pick up shifts on your day off and/or ask if you can come in earlier/stay later. If you want a day off you have to book it 3 weeks in advance.
lots of hours. you get trained in more than one department, occasional employee lunch
late shifts, weekends, no life, no time with family, getting days off can be difficult
Can be busy at times and relaxed at other times. Management is not the best. The pay is not worth it at all, I feel like we are worked more and paid less for the job. Often times we are under-stafffed and those working are killed with the long lineups.Okay for part-time but I could never do it full time.
Every person is smiling and patient in the work. People are all helpful. My English is not very good. I want to practice my listening and speaking. I am afraid that people are angry with me when I say wrong. I feel people are kind in save on food, so I want to try to get a job in here. I live in cloverdale, I want to the local near my home.
my store specifically had a rag tag management, mixed directions from most and a lot of slack employees would be kept over those who are hard working because they suck up to management. its affine place for a student looking for seasonal work but the long term is short lived, they make many promises to promote those who want it but rarely deliver to those who excel. the union is also not very helpful at backing employees or investigating issues in regards to management.
free deli foods and baked goods when not picked up
horrible management choices
