High stress for minimal pay.
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON18 October 2019
Employers are encouraged to rate workers as low as possible on reviews to lower raise amounts. Despite it's immense success and massive profit margins, company only pays minimum wage while expecting unreasonable amounts of work, even with absent employees or low attendance.

Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC6 October 2019
Fired me for having anxiety and even had a doctor diagnose me with it. I was also told by multiple coworkers they hated it there but only stayed because of the hours and because they couldn’t find another job

production worker / pricer (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON1 October 2019
Co workers were amazing to work with. Management lacked empathy and proper communication amongst employees and other managers. Felt like all they care about is making quota not their employees.

Bad Management
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Maple Ridge, BC22 August 2019
Good job most of the employees were great. Management was horrible, never knew what you were walking into. One day the manager would talk to you, the next she wouldn't. Lots of mind games, lies and favouritism. If you are someone that brown noses and kisses up to the boss you will do well. She loved that. Wrong people in the wrong positions. It's too bad that most of the management team had no idea what they were doing and that was because of the store manager , she didn't want to give away any of her power. She was the only one that was ever right.

Overall a very enjoyable experience
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Medicine Hat, AB20 July 2019
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!!

Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Medicine Hat, AB12 July 2019
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

Absolutely terrible
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK5 June 2019
Avoid this place like the plague, pay is only slightly above minimum wage, the work environment is dirty and dangerous and management is abusive and unfair. You're expected to work until you drop, and that's still not enough for them, people look like they want to die in production and management stares at you while you work, and if you make one slight mistake they'll yell at you. Very high turnover rate, you're just another number to them and you'll be treated as such. If you enjoyed being treated like human garbage from unfair management, this is the place for you.

None

Must work with a sense of urgency. Fast paced and quotas
Production worker (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC3 June 2019
You must be able to work hard, and be able to handle the dust in the store not to mention the smell of used clothing. The workers there are hard working. Depending on which store, you can find a great manager or a task master. At Burquitlam store the manager there talks down to you, writes u up for every little thing. and is not flexible with offering you part time hours, They require full time team member
Pros
50% off clothing after 48 hoursof them being on floor
Cons
work hard to little pay

Production Worker, recycler, floater (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON26 May 2019
Lots of disgusting donations. I.e. clothing donations that were moldy,heavy smokers clothes, covered in large amouns of pet fur or grass, urine smell (sometimes still wet) either from cats or humans. Had bed bugs in donations once. Nasty old shoes. Nasty yellow sweat stained clothes. Bad manegment. Most coworkers were terrible to work with. A number of "customers" went for the 100% discount. Having to work outside a lot during winter as a recycler at a certain store because of no loading dock.
Pros
A few good customers. They had ok benefits.
Cons
A lot of bad customers. Most of the review = cons. Minimum wage.

Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS13 March 2019
YOU will be treated like a piece of trash plan and simple. Overworked and underpaid . Lots of pressure and very bad treatment no matter how good a worker you are or how hard you will you will never hear a kind word and will be degraded on a daily bases. I will never put anything in a donation box again.
Pros
there are no pros to working here
Cons
everything, if you like being abused this is the place for you

Toxic environment
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Barrhaven, ON11 March 2019
Overall the work is pretty easy and the benefits are good. Pay is minimum wage with the possibility of a 50 cent raise per year. The biggest issue is the workers and work culture is very toxic. I've described working here as being similar to being in an abusive relationship, I'm sure you can figure out why once you've worker for this company.
