    While a good place to work, the parent corporation is bleeding the life from Save-a-Lot.

    I have been working at Save-A-Lot Food Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clear direction from the DM's, and a company that stands behing the products it offers. 99% of those products are quality and well worth the price. I don't feel like I'm ripping people off.

    Cons

    Working at a corporately owned store you're just an ongoing experimental site designed to showcase the business model to get potential investors to purchase a franchise. This means that every new idea, and there are a lot of them, gets implemented in the corporate stores. Many of them make no practical sense, case in point the short lived quarter cart locks; and many of them are contradictory. This month we're doing it this way, but next month you're doing something totally different. For example the sign rails. Several years ago the company spent a lot of money installing white sign rails over the aisles and priced the top shelf items with overhead signage. A year or so later we spent over $1.5M to remove the rails, only to reinstall new ones two years later at a cost of over $2M! Why???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick the efficiency experts out the door! We're streamlining ourselves right out of the customer service catagory.

    Pros

    You have a job for now that pays similar to fast food store management

    Cons

    no bonus now unless a Store manager. Assistants are now hourly. If you call in sick (ever) or use a sick day you are written up (it is policy) Supervalu is going bankrupt..no stability now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the managers and employees before implementing programs like quarter carts. Wasted money on the bottom line
