Very fast paced but always a good group to work with
Sorter (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 19 September 2018
very fast paced and always trying to improve there numbers, its all about the production and how much they can get out in a day! if you are a very fast paced worker and don't mind mold and fleas then it is great!
My savers experience was delightful. I have made many friends, some that I am still friends with even now that I haven't been employed with Savers. The management was very well organized and most of the management were understanding when you needed to talk. However, it was hard work, the hours were long and the pay cheque's were not that rewarding for the amount of hard work done.
A positive work environment, Management could be better
CDC Ambassador (Former Employee) – Orillia, ON – 9 September 2018
a typical day at work included taking donations from community donors and sorting "Hard" and "Soft"carts to be weighed and labelled, once the donation centre slows down we are sent to the sales floor where we clean and organize racks,shelves and anything that looks out of place, I learned how to work in a fast paced work environment and picked up some speech skills from talking to customers on a daily basis. Management could try and be a little more understanding with the work load that we have to deal with.
SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Saint John, NB – 9 September 2018
a typical day includes stocking new items and cleaning the already placed stock. Also being on cash is part of the day as well. I really enjoy all of the people I work with, they make it much more enjoyable
Production Staff (Former Employee) – Charlottetown, PE – 21 August 2018
the staff i worked wither here were amazing, the only complaint i could have is the dust and allergens, as well as the work and life balance as some days we were required to work weekends even though upon hire it was stated to be a mon-friday day shift.
however the management team as well as the employees were a great crew to work for and with and it has a family friendly crew and you always felt like your fellow employees become family.
Sales clerk (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 16 August 2018
I have been working at savers company for a period of 2 weeks I liked the idea that the company is making profit by accepting donations on behalf of big brothers and then sell them .I think the company has a great approach to make use of donated items.
Sale Associate/ Miscel Sorter (Former Employee) – 190 Aurora Crescent, Kelowna, BC V1X 7M3 – 10 August 2018
the worst company i have ever worked for. no communication, poor management, it was like working in a sweat shop. i only stayed there for two years because it was close to where i lived at the time and i had made a few friends while working there.
Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 August 2018
I learned a lot in just the few months I worked, made great strong connections, the discounts are incredible and the people I worked with were really helpful and encouraging. Did a co-op here as well and I learned so much about myself and the company
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 6 August 2018
No matter how hard you work, you get no recognition and just pushed more. Management likes to just stand around and not help at all. Instead of hiring more people, they want to make someone do 2-4 jobs a day because that works. Everyone is two-faced and total gossipers. I highly suggest to never work here.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 1 August 2018
You don't stop moving till your break if you are good at your job you get into trouble for not picking up others slack. lots of gossip and drama. Most managers don't care about your new ideas. accommodating to time off.
Customer Care / Operations / Cashier (Current Employee) – Stratford, ON – 27 July 2018
Cleaning the public bathrooms was not explained during the hiring and training process. This is the hardest part of the job for me. As main cashier, other tasks include fitting room maintenance, loss prevention, cleaning and customer care. Most of the managers are good to work with, but all it takes is one bully to wreck your day. The workplace culture expects always available at their convenience, 7 days a week. The schedule comes out the Wednesday before next weeks shifts. It's difficult because the schedule always changes. The workload is not reasonable and the expectations are too much. I really enjoy working on senior's day because it is my generation and we understand each other and joke about ourselves.
I have a job
Working as hard as you can, without achieving completion and a job well done
