Good job - Questionable managment
Kitchen Chef (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 25 March 2018
The job itself was great - The responsibilities you're given are very varied, so you're never bored, doing the same thing for hours on end.
The management is usually professional... But my hiring process was rushed - Because they needed more bodies as soon as possible - As a result, I wasn't given a chance to set availability hours & days. They had me working full time, booking me over my school days for the first couple weeks. Save on foods is also unionized, which can be a blessing and a curse... You get a few (very minor) benefits, but if you want them to change the way they're treating you - For example, if you want them to change your availability hours - It will take them time as there's a process to every change, and you will have to work to change it just as hard as they will. This is good over all, but for an individual worker that needs something changed soon, this can be... Unfortunate.
I also talked to a number of the employees... They seemed to be having some trouble with the management as well. Just a few, but again, the real issue is that change happens so, incredibly slowly for the individual worker.
If you're dedicating yourself to only working at Save-On, I can imagine this would be a good job... But as a university student, or if you've got some other responsibilities, I'd reconsider.
