Good minimum wage job

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
This company is unionized which is a good thing but also occasionally has its drawbacks. I really enjoyed worked with such a dynamic group of individuals and I truly learned so much from my time there. I would recommend working for this company because they do take care of you and have multiple resources for everyone no matter their situation. My only issue was the general neativity of working in a grocery store. But it was a mostly enjoyable place to work.

Terrible Management

Honestly, it is problably just the Save-On I was specifically working at but the management was just bad. Never had enough employees for the day therefore everyone ended up working more, taking extra hours or having to come in extra days. Also, the attitude from managment to employees wasn't moyivating at all.

Nice employees, extremely frustrating workplace

are you looking for a workplace that will not only give you some new friends but also stress you out until you want to cry? then this is the job for you! it's not the fact that the work is particularly difficult, nor is it the pace of things. the issue lies within the management and organization of the workplace. it feels as if you don't really matter to the higher ups and in my experience people really don't matter to them. they will be nice to you but you can't be surprised when they throw you out. i was hired and i was told i would be perfect for my job. i was excited about this! this was my first job and i did what i was told and worked to the best of my abilities. this was not enough. at the end of my 'probation' period or whatever it's called i was ''let go''. i was not told a proper, professional reason for this. i was told that it was like 'trying to fit a square peg in a circular hole' and then i was offered to finish the online order i was completing at the time i was called into the office. even worse i was told that i could try again in six months time. the work is simple really, just follow the instructions and you should get by just fine. the difficult part about this job is the constant on-edge-ness you have to feel when around people who start drama with each other or when you see people you were hired with being let go. i had probably 1 good shift in the 3 months i worked there (i worked around 4 shifts a week usually, three 4hr shifts and one 8hr shift) and the only reason it was good was because i had co workers i knew there. a job should leave you feeling -

Busy workplace most times. at one time we received 2 complimentary tickets to most shows and a meal before the show or game.

Shifts were 12 hours and we were often understaffed. Always more supervisors than workers. The salary was below many other similar places and there was no pension. Worked alone at night and weekends (unless there was a show or WHL hockey game).

Points négatifs

12 hour shifts, often understaffed, no pension

small wage for a big job

being cashier is a very stressful job, people can be very rude. The wages are not enough plus you have to pay union dues. Your start times can vary day to day, shifts can change with little notice.

Points positifs

Big staff so lots of opportunity for new friends or lovers

Points négatifs

no consistency with shifts, paid every week so working 6 days in a row is a thing, paid for stat holidays but no extra day off in lieu.

Alot of Failings but also alot of Potential

I've worked for Save-on-foods for several years and there are things that I wish someone would have told me before I started there, here is that list: Good: *The Staff you will work with becomes a second family, It's why I am still there. *You get to learn tons of different things that will help you move up or move on in the future. *The Customers of Save on foods are amazing, the company really does treat their customers with such respect and kindness. *The company values the communities they are in, and that's not just because they say so, Save-on-foods supports local! *The Benefits are fantastic, second to none. *The Union support is amazing, first thing you should do is find out who your shop steward is. Bad: *Wages, Anytime a business says that their wages are "Competitive" it means that they suck but are comparable to other terrible wages offered around the same area. *Management, It's bad, it's really bad. *Back door deals, you remember that time when they said that "there is tons of room for advancement and growth in this fast paced company"? Well Management gets to pick whoever they want to put in those roles so even if you've done your time, proven yourself to be a complete asset of the company it wont matter because they will usually just transfer someone else into the position from another store or promote someone undeserving simply because they were promised a better role and the one you were the most deserving of happened to just come up. This will legitimately happen all the time and they HATE being called out on it. *Seniority means absolutely nothing -

Fair, well organized entry level job.

Save on Foods (in my experience) is an exceptionally well managed company. Everyone is on the same page, management is very accomodating of their employees needs. I would say my only complaint is that it is an entry level job, which means minimum pay and very little room to move up. That being said, it feels like a more level playing field and I genuinely feel if someone were to put in the time and show the initiative they'd have a fair shot at moving up. Overall good place to work, especially if you simply need something to keep you going while you look elsewhere.

Worst management team. Very biased toward employees.

I used to work for Save on Foods and first few weeks were great and then the new assistant manager came in who was extremely rude and very mean toward employees. Most of my colleagues quit because of the bad behavior of this particular manager. The other management personnel were okay but they didn't want to hear anything about how the assistant manager was at the wrong and always sided with him. He is very biased and if he didn't like an employee or if you try to stand up for yourself he would then toss you in the worst department ever that you specifically asked them to not schedule in.

Overall okay

Good place to work. Couple of employees get on to your nerve at times, please ignore and keep moving. New will be utilized to the core without any appreciation.

fun place to work

Minimum pay for the beginner, every year the rate is raise for 5 cents/hour. But people work there are friendly, helpful. It is a good place to work if you don't need stress, and don't care the pay rate.

Busy workplace with a variety of roles to fill

A typical day at work starts with punching a time clock, checking in with the supervisor and fulfilling your daily tasks. You get two 15 min. coffee breaks and a 30 min. lunch break. I learned customer service and interpersonal skills, as well as inventory management and communication skills. Management has always been fair. The workplace culture is only as good as the people you work with. Personally I made friendly with all my team members and going to work was like going to hang out with friends. The job can be physically demanding and a little repetitive. There is no real end to the work, as there is always something else to do. The most enjoyable part is building relationships with co-workers and customers.

Great place for part time and young people to get work experience

After retiring from another career I got Hired at \save on foods pretty quick... as soon as walked in door. Working as a front end cashier it was an excellent opportunitity to work in a different line of customer service. Also There is a seniority gameclause in their policy and after about a year I was on the floor trained to take charge of front end duties in some shifts and delegate and guide other staff. Also learned extra duties such as Lottery, rental of rug cleaners, and pricing. I recommend for especially young people. Also an great pension for those who stick it out!!

Good Workplace with Lots of Hours

Save on was a good workplace, my coworkers were all very friendly along with management being helpful and nice too. There was a minimum of 16 hour availability per week which was difficult to deal with being a student in high school. Attempting to switch to grocery from cash was also difficult. Great benefits after working there a while, minimum wage, overall an okay place to work with a good reputation.

Points positifs

Friendly environment, Helpful management

Points négatifs

Minimum 16 hours per week, Not much room to switch departments

horrible place to work

management sucked, forced you to train in other departments even if you didn’t want to and didn’t feel comfortable doing it. had an experience where management would also trash talk other employees right in front of them. if you needed to change availability they never would, even if you told 4 people your availability wouldn’t be changed at all.

Points positifs

weekly pay

The management at the time was truest awful very sexist and rude and never cared about anyone except the money that went into there own pockets. Many days I was sitting on the floor of the staff bathroom haveing panic attacks because I had to go to work.

Points positifs

I got to take home “old” bread

Points négatifs

Management awful, Super uptight, Pushed you past your own line even when you said no.

No care for food safe procedures. Absolutely terrible experience.

After 8 years in the kitchen industry I decided to switch gears and get into the grocery game. After one shift i was appalled at witnessing a disregard for food safe practices from management of the Deli Dept. (putting fresh prepped product onto dirty baking trays) as well as my supervisor just writing in temperatures without checking. I followed the company channels to form a complaint regarding the indifference to following food safe policy and was immediately reprimanded and fired as I was in my probationary period still. I am horrified at the behavior of upper and lower management and will not be shopping at Save On Foods again.

Points positifs

Fruit in lunch room..

Points négatifs

Terrible Management, Poor Food Safe Practices, Min Wage.

Every shift is different depending on the event that you are working which is really nice. All co-workers are super friendly which makes it great to go to work.
