    I have been working at SM Supermarket full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    People have this impression that the management is not generous, but if you work hard and your performance is good, they also pay well. Benefits are competitive too.

    Cons

    At the end of the day, it's still a Chinese, family-run business. While steps are being made to "corporate-ize" and professionalize the structure, it's such a big ship that it's hard to steer. Also wish there was some sort of car and housing plan for employees, after all, most of your time is already spent in the office or in the stores. Work often gets extended but SM puts a high premium on attendance so you still have to clock in at 8am the next day no matter how late you stayed the night before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better recognition for home-grown and loyal employees, please! These are the people who work hard but don't say anything no matter how much work you throw their way.

    I worked at SM Supermarket as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The best reason to work in SM supermarket,is because it is a great pleasure to everyone to be a part of a no.1 supermarket and mall in the country.The salary is good and fair together with the benefits.The supervisors are all kind and supportive the management as well.

    Cons

    In my experience,the downside in working in SM supermarket is being a contractual.I can't remember when my supervisor told me that it was my last day in my job as a salesclerk in the children's wear division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be sure to choose right and honest person, when hiring and go on for loving all the people working in your great great company.
