Mission: We help our customers to live richer, fuller lives by saving them money and time. The time-saving set-up of Save-A-Lot stores, combined with high-quality discount groceries, allows us to offer great food at great prices from great people, every day.
Life is about more than work, right? It's about family, health and time off to rejuvenate. We get it—that’s why our benefits package has you covered.
As one of the nation’s leading hard discount grocery retailers with more than 1300 stores across 36 states and a network of both licensee and corporate stores, we can offer benefits that truly provides work life balance.
Benefits may vary, but here’s a sneak peek at a few:
Despite economic hard times in our country, we’re thriving here at Save-A-Lot. While our competitors are struggling or folding altogether, we’re growing—fast.
So what does our growth mean for yours? Endless possibilities! Now’s the time to join us. Opportunities are opening all around us and we’re filling positions from our communities and promoting from our own team. We’re big fans of cross-promotional career moves too (think lattice as well as ladder). The more our associates understand other roles, the better leaders they become. You could end up with multiple successful careers within one company.
The pace of our growth creates unprecedented career advancement opportunities for managers, assistant managers, distribution roles, corporate positions and more. Along with leadership programs, development planning and lots of coaching and feedback, we’re also proud of Learning Cart. Learning Cart is our online course catalogue of instructor-led training. You’ll work with your manager to come up with your own customized plan of eLearning courses so that your growth can keep pace with ours.
Respect. Ambition. Pride. There are a lot of qualities we’re proud of here at Save-A-Lot. We’re a close-knit, down-to-earth group that thrives in a fast-paced environment. We feel comfortable sharing ideas with our immediate coworkers on up to our management team.
We’re proud of what we do, both the details (stocking a freezer) and the big picture (helping our customers provide for their families). And a major part of our culture is to help each other succeed. We often perform roles above and beyond our job description. Our managers pitch in at the register. Our distribution centers contribute ideas on energy saving. Our corporate leaders spend time on the floor. This not only strengthens our teams, it strengthens our skills. Working at Save-A-Lot means you’ll learn—a lot.
Our company is built on the contributions of people from different ethnicities, lifestyles and backgrounds. We believe in hiring from within the communities we serve. That philosophy creates an environment where we respect our differences and thrive on what we learn from each other.
Understanding each other helps us serve our communities even better. That’s why we promote diversity councils, awareness workshops, cultural activities and celebrations, bilingual associate communications and second-language education. It’s why we require every associate to complete an online diversity workshop.
We love working with so many unique talents and are honored to serve a customer base as diverse as we are.
I have been working at Save-A-Lot Food Stores full-time (More than a year)
Great opportunity for accelerated development and growth. Perfect time to make a big impact on customers lives in a positive way!
You must manage your own time efficiently to achieve work life balance, but that is no different from any job.
Advice to Management
Remember we are changing lives everyday. We must stay the course.
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (Portland, OR) in April 2008.
Found the job on Craigs List, one phone interview, one in-person interview with DM, and then a job offer.
They offered me what I requested. Turns out it was the mid-point of their salary range.
