Being a clerk was fun!

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
I loved coming to work and chatting with my customers I learned so much so much about them and the company, cleanliness and keeping yourself moving is key. Keeping the customers happy and coming back is second nature.Management was awesome, my Super was such a superb fun, outgoing, and supportive lady. I didn't have a problem with anybody I worked with and around, great people and great environment. I never had a dull moment in any of my shifts we all were either laughing and/or smiling, never a dull moment.The hardest part was memorising the codes for the whole produce section.

Points positifs

Raise and benefits after six months!

Points négatifs

Memorising codes!

Not a fun work place its just a job

Its not an amazing job, its a job at a grocery store nothing special. If it was 2 or even 1 dollar more per hour then it'd be a decent job. Its low income

Points positifs

Pension

Points négatifs

Easily annoyed managers not good management

Pays the bills

Unless you been there forever or work 24 hours or less, so you can manipulate your availability, this job is horrible if you want a life. grid A employees (a pay grid that doesn’t exist anymore) get everything and are rude to the grid B members who haven’t been there for many years. They expect the same work ethic from newbies that they had when they were first hired but those member have nothing to work towards to benefit their life like they had when first starting out and the training is almost non-existent. Management cycles out sometime too fast or too slow. It’s almost as if staff is happy with management that means they need to leave so they can put a shittier manager in. Some management are glorified grocery clerks , give those tasks to a supervisor or general clerk and do MANAGEMENT things! The union(UFCW) cares more about acquiring new members from all sorts of companies. The care for the members has gone out the window over the years they just want to accumulate more members so they can get paid more. As a grid b member I do a better job then a grid A but constantly get the shaft cuz of “seniority”

Points positifs

If you work 24 hour or less you can’t manipulate what hours you work good staff, union

Points négatifs

Union, Daily shift changes for new people, low pay and the pay raise scale takes you forever to make good money, company hires too many teenagers or young adults unavailable during the day

Great entry level job to gain work experience

Fun place to work with lots of variation in coworkers. It's a good job to learn many common workplace and customer service skills. You get out what you put in to the job. Many workers do the very minimum for duties, so if you work a bit harder it is easy to look really good. One thing that is frustrating is that EVERYTHING is based on seniority (whoever has been there longer). So even if someone is less qualified, less experienced, or just doesn't do their job well, they are still protected by union so they make more for pay, better choice in hours and chosen first for job advancement.

Points positifs

Good Benefits, somewhat flexible hours

Points négatifs

Seniority, Poor communication between upper management and team member workers

Good Place to Work Until You Want Something

I worked at Save On Foods and it was good and they treated you well until you wanted something from them. I continuously would ask to work in different departments and they would say sure and it would never happen. I booked time off 5 months ahead of time, they said it was fine, week of comes and they all of a sudden say its not approved. Almost no room for growth either.

Workplace Culture

The culture changed dramatically in the 20 years I was employed there. The pay scale changed and management brought more students in that didn't have the same work ethics and dedication that the long term employees had.

Points positifs

Friendly Staff

Points négatifs

Hard Physical Work

Fun place to work.

This is a great place to work with regard to people you work with. It can be a very fun environment. There are opportunities to learn new skills if you show initiative. The hours of work are not bad.

Productive Fun

Dealing with many customers and I have come to realize that you cannot please all the people all the time. I say just do your best and keep smiling. Also have learnt not to take things personally when it comes to a cranky customer because that person could be going through more then you know in life. You just have to keep focused and do your job to the best of your abilities and keep smiling!!

Points positifs

Good opportunities for advancement

Points négatifs

Long hours on your feet

Okay for part time/temporary, not that you'll get full time anyways

Since it's a union, it takes forever to get even close to full time hours (sometimes up to a year) unless you work in an extremely small department. After a year, you get full medical and fairly good dental as well, plus paid vacation. However, the first couple of months they can fire you without reason, and you would be lucky to get 2 or 3 shifts a month. Also because it's a union, there are far too many long term employees who are making 25 to 30 dollars an hour, and getting 6 weeks paid vacation, while doing the exact same work as you. It is now impossible to work your way up to that wage, as they have capped entry level positions at a maximum of 16 an hour. Along the lines of long-term employees, management will let many things slide and look past certain rules broken by longer term employees. When you start, they will tell you that if you ever have a problem, you can just go to one of the union representatives, however the two times I did take advantage of that, my confidential problems were told to other people within management, which made me feel very awkward and unsafe in my work environment. I have heard many stories like this one from my old coworkers.

Points positifs

Paid holiday's, good benefits after a year, free lunches/food in staff room, job security after probational period

Points négatifs

Unsympathetic management, constantly fluctuating schedule, hard to get time off, unable to book time off over Christmas holiday's
