Poor Workplace

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Managers need to be trained better. Everyone has a negative attitude, the only way you will make it working at this company is if you become friends with the 4 people who are not horrible. Managers have a horrible attitude everyone talks about each other. Overall you don't feel like your job is a safe place.

Pass on working here

Favouritism is abundant. The only way to move up is to be favoured by management and not through hard work. Poor morale and gossip initiated by management. Any suggestions are shot down

Pros

None

Cons

Everything

Productive, energetic workplace with great co-workers

Management was always friendly, as well as other team members. The job was easy, the only true difficulty came with the sale days and subsequent increase of customers that came with them.

Positive team atmosphere

management and my team made this job as good as it was. Frequent team-building allowed one to know their co-workers and help teach us to work together.

fast paced and productive workplace. Always room for opportunity.

In a typical day, there is always review with the SM, as to what is needed to be done for that day, along with upcoming deadlines. there is planning and focus needed to organize the day, around break coverage, or meetings scheduled. then the execution of the daily plans. Through the ISM, our weekly sales plan, there needs to be planning and thought put into it. Any product that is on sale, that is not placed in the proper setting throughout the store can negatively affect your sales goals. there is always opportunity for movement of product through the store. Being in the " Hard lines" part of the store, organization is a must. Signage must be checked or changed daily, for weekly sales, or daily deals. Motivating the team to stay focused and lending help when needed is always a must. the team we have in the store makes for a positive atmosphere. We always have fun, and try to keep it more of a family as a work place. we like everyone to feel comfortable coming to work.

Pros

more like a family

Cons

Store closing

Great team members.

I enjoyed my time with value village, the team members are all great. Management- no communication, not alot of structure. Very fast paced, time efficiencies and company standards adhered to..

Pros

Fun days, benefits

Cons

No overtime, rate of pay didnt reflect hardwork and dedication to store and its core values.

A company that does give back

Savers does what it says: They give to their Non-profit partners; they give to the communities the stores are in; and they give back to the planet with the recycling programs. They are a for profit company and don't lie or hide behind it.

Pros

discounts, team member respect

Cons

always wants growth, and more

It was a great company for recycling

The recycling aspect is great and wonderful to see how it works. The money found benefits the staff with bbq's and tshirts to support events.

Lack of Teamwork

A typical day consisted of showing up to work on time and not having freedom to do your job right. I often took extra shifts, stayed past my 8 hour shift and worked double my work load when other employees wouldn't show up and never got a raise. I had one amazing supervisor who would allow you to multitask instead of standing around doing nothing at cash. Co-workers often took your shift, but wouldn't show up so you got written up for it, you were promised a certain position and then they gave it to someone else. There was no room for advancement.
