Busy and dirty work in the Deli. Favortitism played in the department

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Busy and dirty work has to be done every day and I would smell bad if I don't wash my clothes at least once a day. The store manager and the department manager were trying to be nice all the time but the assistant manager in my department was being naggy often time putting pressure on team members except for her "close friends" and playing favoritism. I ended up quitting because of that because I got fed up with her actions. Everyone else seemed pretty nice for the most part.

Stressful but great people

Stressful work situations compounded by management breathing down your neck to ensure you meet unfair standards. If you're not buddy buddy with a lot of upper management, you will find your work incredibly stressful.The other staffmembers however are incredibly nice and kind.

Great starter job.

Good job to gain workplace experience/life skills. Do not stick around for long, spread your wings and try other minimum wage jobs to gain a variety of life skills.

Deli clerk

Management in the deli was impressive and supportive meanwhile the store managers themselves were not so supportive or even kind. Sad to see that the management went down hill in my year and a half there. At the beginning the staff and management were so kind and supportive as time went on that diminished unfortunately.


Snacks in the breakroom great coworkers


Disappointing management

Best place to work

I worked here for about 4 months. I had to move to Toronto that’s why i had to leave my job which I never wanted to. Management is so nice. All are so helpful. I would say it’s the best place to work.


You get extra perks on your save on card. Sometimes free stuff.

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.

Fast Pace, customer service came first.

Customers came fist as working in the Deli at Save Ons, we give the customer what they ask for, such as thickness of the meat they wanted to how they wanted it packaged. Took orders for the salad bar. Prep food in the kitchen for Clients.

Fun place if you dont take pride in your work or dont care

The training is trash and non-existent. I work in the deli and they just hand me a production guide, and left me alone to figure out myself. I didn't even know where most of the ingredients were or how to get them. When i asked for help they said " you are a smart guy you can figure it out ". The worst training iv ever been a part of.

Deli and Cashier work at Save On Foods

Daily job day is working in the deli. Greeting customers, assisting, slicing meat, preparing sandwiches and making party trays. I have been here just about 3 years. The management isn't the greatest as some say. We don't always get treated with fairness.

Great place to work with fun people

It is always filled with employees who like to crack a joke to brighten up a dull day, and are super helpful when you have a question or concern. Save On Foods certainly lives up to their slogan; "Always Customer First".
