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.
in my time working at save on foods it was filled with empty promises of full time which never happened if I was lucky I'd break 30 hours a week. Was fine in high school but not after graduation. Also the way they give you a raise by only by your hours and then increasing it by five cents every few months makes it hard to be motivated when there's one guy who does nothing all shift gets the same raise you do because his hours are filled. But however they have very flexible scheduling. This is a fine job for someone in high school but not for after you graduate
Hours were good, the one thing is during my time there. They could give you a shift with only 24 hours before that shift. Pay was good, coworkers were very friendly. Invest in a good pair of comfortable work runners. But plenty of breaks.
Well paying, room for advancement.
I worked at Save On for over two years. The managers here do NOT communicate with each other. I was also constantly scheduled 6-7 days in a row and told just to suck it up because they had to work these hours too. It would've been somewhat fine but they split the hours between work weeks, so that I did not get overtime. I was removed from the department I worked for two years suddenly, and the manager brought up a plethora of complaints against me. However in the past year I have not had a single review, thus every problem he had with me, was unbeknownst to me. This is a perfect place for you if you want no social life, and are willing to work closing shifts and openings the next day for a year, while working 7 days a week with no overtime due to how they schedule you. Also expect them to consistently run skeleton crews in most departments, so your're constantly under pressure.
Free food, convenient location
Poor scheduling, Poor communication with both employees and staff, no reviews
Starting wage is $13.95. You get a raise of $0.10 Cents every 1000 hours .Sometimes they give free things to take home like a can of pop or chips, usually stuff thats near expiry date. also depends on the store manager and store itself. people are usually young.
You are required to work alone and during the closing hours of the store. Highly monotonous activities with minimal customer interaction but performed at a fast pace.
Work alone, minimal customer interaction
Union dues, strict clock in and outs, unpaid lunch
everyone for the most part is super sweet! I got promoted very fast from cashier to customer service and it built me a great resume. would not recommend for long term job and you cant take vacation for more than 3 days until you've worked there a year. you get paid every week at he same time which is super nice!
Worked at the South location. Management needs more training on communication and not encouraging/taking part in gossiping. Hard to move up unless you suck up to management. Promised full time hours, but they always fluctuated from 24 to 32 to 40 and back down to 24 which made it hard to live off of. Schedule constantly changed which made it hard to plan for your days off if they always got taken away. Was being paid 13.50 and a new person I was training from scratch was being paid 14.50. How is that fair??
You need to be an energetic, ORGANIZED individual to work in a grocery store. Some departments are more demanding than others, so it is important to stay on top of your game. It is important to remember that "The Customers are always right". Be helpful, be respectful, and be ready for anything!
Too much favouritism and discrimination, the hard workers get treated like garbage while the lazy ones get away with everything. Customers are usually quite pleased with us with how we keep our shelves stocked and our store clean.
Staff are friendly, store is clean and stocked
Too much favouritism and Discrimination
While employed at save on foods I learned Important skills allowing myself to be less introverted as well as diversifying my skill set which has greatly helped me throughout my life
Training is intense and unforgiving. If you aren't able to keep up, they'll find a way to make your life miserable till you quit. Management is good. Pressure from corporate puts a lot of strain on minimum wage workers.
Minimal Training Provided
