Uncommunicative management and stressful work environment.

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Although this job offers a good introduction to a retail work environment, a prolonged stays reveals an unorganized and messy, and unprofessional the work ethic.Many nice and welcoming employees, but does have some stingy or unwelcoming personnel.

Points positifs

Good training, friendly co-workers

Points négatifs

Poor management communication and stressful workplace

Fun workplace

It was overall a nice place to work at with job security, benefits and most important multicultural working environment. You will get help at every single step of your work, if needed.

Points positifs

Free lunches sometimes.

Hard work for a low pay

Direct supervisors are great, nice co-workers overall, but higher management don't work well. Department usually understaffed, with bad quality systems and a total lack of procedures. A very physically demanding work.Turnover is huge due to lack of any career progress or pay bump related to employment time. They gave 0.25 + 0.25 cents raise after 300 and 600 hours respectively, which is not on par with the market wage.It is basic exploitation. I do not recommend.

Points positifs

Self paced environment

Points négatifs

Physical work, low wage

It was fun, then it wasn't fun. Good for someone who's never worked before and needs experence.

The pay is garbage, You raise is 10 cents. They lie about alot of the benifits you will receive, such as tuition and such. Company can be sneaky snakes, managment changes alot which mean it could be good or bad. The company itself is very cheap. They understaff and under pay. They tell you that your schedual is put 3 weeks in advance but in reality they can change your schedual at anytime without any repurcussions if its more then 24 hours into the future. They will schedual you to close and then schedual you to open the next day. In regards to that they can make you work for 8 days straight without any overtime or benifits. Also I never got my benifit paper work until it was two months late. Also the union is horrible, they dont care, my rep never got in contact with me even though I contacted them multiple times. Work here if you need to goto school or something or if its your last resort, you will grow old and be stressed out.

Points positifs

Free food

Points négatifs

No rights, paid poorly, high stress job for minimal wage.

Fast paced

Starting wage is $13.95. You get a raise of $0.10 Cents every 1000 hours .Sometimes they give free things to take home like a can of pop or chips, usually stuff thats near expiry date. also depends on the store manager and store itself. people are usually young.

they don't even give feedback

Regarding the application, I have not been given any feedback, not even complying with the courtesy of doing business. Do not waste your precious time with this company.

Bad experience

I really don't want to back there. The leader is super lazy . She never do her job, we have to cover her job. The manager is terrible. If you get sick, they don't believe you. If you can not finish the work on time and have to do overtime, they don't pay you.

not worth it

I started working here after working at another grocery store where I had a super positive experience and I hoped here would be the same. That was not the case. The managers ( except for one) were pretty passive aggressive and not helpful ( quite intimidating). They did not seem like they knew what they were doing. Customers would be rude or creepy and you just had to deal with it. They also claim they help the environment but that's BS. The staffroom was minuscule and very dirty and gross. You have to pay for your own uniform and there are no benefits. If you are unable to go for a shift because you're sick, they treat you terribly. The community was non existent and very unwelcoming, save for a few people. Some people in customer service were very controlling and unfair. People the age of 15-70 work here. I would not reccomend this job to most people unless you are very good with people and do not mind a dirty work environment. This is a good first job for 15 year olds but if you have experience, work somewhere else.

Productive and hard work

Excellent opportunity to do the difference in the world by helping people on a daily basis which makes you feel a great person and grown internally. It's a hard job but becomes easy after a while. If you are an observer person you will learn a lot with your manager and other colleagues who are true friends.

Fast-paced work for low income

I worked here for about 8 months and decided it was not for me. Management was alright but wage increase a big part that my department lacked. The department itself was understaffed also which gave some stress.

Points positifs

Staff are friendly

Points négatifs

Lot's of overtime and not a very fair wage

One of the best companies to work for

I was entrusted to manage the store and manage people. Write schedules to help facilitate day to day operations, assign duties to employees, keep everyone engaged and help keep the work environment positive.

Lots of work for little pay

People's experience with Save-On can vary widely from store to store, but a few things remain consistent: The pay sucks - despite being unionized, you will make minimum wage when they hire you, and the regular raises (10 cents every 520hrs) aren't going to do much to change that. The work is hard - whether its the endless hours of stocking shelves, unloading pallets, or anything else, you'll be working hard from the moment you punch in to the moment you punch out. I'd say it's not as bad as construction, but at least that pays well. Workers that were hired pre 1997 are a class unto themselves - Due to a less than successful strike in the late 90s, the workers at Save On are divided between "grid A" and "grid B". A has good benefits meaningful wage increases, and a union that takes good care of them. B tend to last less than two months before quitting, they have nothing of note. The union cut a deal to split their workers in two, if you were hired before 1997 (with some exceptions) good for you! If not you're in for a bad time, for bad pay. Benefits - Probation is 3 months, benefits kick in after one year, of the 16 people I was hired with, 1 aside from myself lasted long enough to be eligible... Good luck though. Work Life Balance - Schedules are posted two weeks in advance, and are always a nightmare. You'd rather not close one night and open the next morning? Too bad. You'd like to have consecutive days off so you can feel like you have a weekend? Too bad. You'd like to work the same days every week so you can plan things beyond two weeks ahead? Too bad. I -

garbage

Extremely embarrassing and unhealthy workplace. Management does not care about workers and sit it their offices all day never coming down to the floor.
