    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Save-A-Lot Food Stores part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers can make or break shifts. You'll have a really fun shift or the worst one all work. Cleaning was fun when the equipment to clean the floors actually worked. Never got too busy except during the holidays.

    Cons

    Certain managers were pushy and unhelpful, especially if you're undertrained in certain departments and don't know what you're doing. Hours can get out of hand despite telling management you can't work at certain times
