    I have been working at Save Mart (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. Real Family-like environment. Second and third level management is good. They actually work with you and help when you need it, beyond those levels though - Good Luck!

    Cons

    Store managers and supervision seem to not remember where they came from. They don't connect with they're employees and always know whats best for they're store. What works in one store doesn't always work in another! Plus you can't know you're store when you sit in the office all day!!!! The company jumps over dollars to save pennies! Everything they do is putting band aids on things, instead of properly fixing them.

    Advice to Management

    Put time in effort into you're stores and employees. If you keep cutting back store level employee benefits you're gonna end up belly-up!!!!!!! You're store employees are you're life line not you're corporate employees. Put some effort into training employees, new and experienced ones. They are you're future put some time into them! Also stop rewarding those that keep screwing up. I mean really, when an employee keeps getting talked to about they're performance, stop giving them twenty chances. Its obviously an issue at that point! Another thing; split days off IS NOT Necessary! I realize scheduling requirements change but split days every week is ridiculous! Especially when they're not equally distributed among employees!

    Pros

    The company is a good employer. The store was very busy but the time went very fast. There were many advancement.

    Cons

    There were not too many cons. The hours were long when slow. The customers are sometimes very demanding and with attitude.


  11. If you like long hours with no extra pay, appreciation or credit, or flexible scheduling, this is the place.

    I have been working at Save Mart part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can work as many hours and you want. Holiday Discounts, 10% off store label items 2 weeks before 2 major holidays.

    Cons

    Company does not have employees back with mad customers, equipment is not safely kept up, or cleaned. Lazy Union. Overworked coworkers and Supervisors. Also there is little-to-no Chance of moving up in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more Employees, MAINTAIN EQUIPMENT (ie, Cutters, floors, carts, check stands) to PREVENT INJURY. Get a union that >actually cares< for its workers, or drop the union (you'd save Everyone money).
