    I have been working at Save-A-Lot Food Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Corporate culture is friendly and collaborative.

    Cons

    Company is in constant transition. Corporate brand identity is not strong. No importance given to strategy or innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Without a keen understanding of the corporate identity and target customer it will be very difficult to attract new customers and keep them.

    I have been working at Save-A-Lot Food Stores full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay. Good benefits. Enjoy most of the people I work with.

    Cons

    You're not only the manager, you're the cashier, stocker, janitor...on a typical night, it's you and one cashier in the store, and you're store manager and DM expect the store to look 100% the next day. Which is fine, if you have the time to do it...but you can't have any overtime. So, when things don't get done it falls back on you...and when you work over 40, you're gonna hear about that too. There is no balance in that regard. You just have to choose which of the two you'd rather get yelled at for.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the stores to hire more associates, open up more hours so the managers have time to actually manage the store.
