Overall a very enjoyable experience

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked in production, bed & bath department, as a sorter. Mon - Fri, 8am - 4pm. Occasional Saturdays. I really enjoyed this job and Savers was a great company to work for. Management was great, training was ample, co-workers wonderful. Wage was decent and chance for bonuses. There was a daily quota but nothing that wasn’t achievable. Lots of staff socials such as pot-lucks, etc. Great work place community. Physically demanding.

Pros

Great management, wonderful work place culture and great incentives!

Cons

No air conditioning! Hot in summer and cold in winter!!

not school friendly, plus some supervisors are the worst person to work with. with a high turnover rate

i would not reccommend working here if u are in school. they are the type of place who when u want part time they give full time hours... and get disgruntled when you dont want those hours ,saying "this will be tough to rework the schedule." has a high tunrover rate for employees under 3 months. even if it doesnt work out for you they want a two weeks letter of resignation if you have worked there for a week. There are some good supervisors and one really bad one. this one isnt very nice to people who do not share the same interests as her. its very cliquey. i received maybe 10 hours worth of on the job training and often got passively agressively talked to when i made mistakes when it was my second day on cash. it really is the kind of work place where if you arent taught it, figure it out.

Pros

50% discount

Cons

little to no training. all of the training is on the fly. high turnover

Savers

A tyipcal workday included sorting through sometimes moldy donations and or garbage. What I learned from this experience is that I work well with others Management was great! Workplace culture could use some work but all in all, i think it is ok. Hardest part of the job was sorting through smelly socks and moldy donations. Most enjoyable part of the job was the birthday celebrations every month and in the summer time we always had bbq's

Pros

30 percent of money found

Cons

overstepping boundaries

fulfilling job

As the community donations centre ambassador your job is to receive donations at the donations centre. It's an interesting job and you meet tons of new interesting people.

Horrible management lead to bad experience overall

The company itself has great values. However, the management team at the Medicine Hat location does not look out for their staff. The staff is treated as just another number and not human beings.

fast paced work environment with great staff

it was a very easy job to come and go from the hours where consistent and so was the staff. sometime expectations where quite high and that did put a little stress on the staff creating slight tension. They are very strict about recycling with good reason, and the company its self is very passionate about helping the planet and people. good staff programs like health care, sick days and vacation time.

Employers not very understanding and are condescending.

Wasn't a great place for a career but okay as a temporary job. Management could never understand someones life balance. Were not very encouraging and had no room for advancement.
