    I have been working at Save-On Foods full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Decent Pay. Wonderful Area Team Leads.

    Cons

    They hire too many employees at one time, and cut back on all the senior employees hours, without explaining why. We are supposed to have seniority for a set amount of hours per week, but they keep screwing us around. No communication throughout the head office and also to the rest of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Put more value on your great employees, or you will keep losing amazing workers, who once loved their jobs.

    I worked at Save-On Foods part-time

    Pros

    - free snacks in staff lounge - flexible hours

    Cons

    - if you take a break during closing there's no one who takes your place at the department so sometimes you have to skip breaks or end them prematurely - when clocking out after your shift is scheduled to end, the extra time you put in is not counted so you're working for free

    I have been working at Save-On Foods full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    You are working with great people. You start to build relationships with regular customers. They push you to work hard and go the extra mile every day.

    Cons

    There can be bad customers and situations at some times. You don't always get the hours that you ask for and a lot of times you are on call for shifts.

    I have been working at Save-On Foods full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, even for part-time Union Friendly coworkers Night shift premium of $2/hr No uniform/dress code when working overnight

    Cons

    I work graveyards picking orders, and no matter how many or how few orders there are we are required to stay for the entire shift. It is scheduled and paid, but having nothing to do for upwards of 3 hours can become very draining.

    Advice to Management

    Allow graveyard to clock out after completing all work
