Save on Foods
I always showed up 10 minutes before my shift when working on the cash register to make sure I had enough bags, receipt paper as well as any other stock up required for my shift.Serving each and every customer with the respect that they all deserve and helping them either find or return an item was one of my duties. Customer service desk I was responsible for the lottery as well as complaints and returns or mistakes on the receipt. Price change Department I was responsible for printing and hanging all new price tags for the weekly flyer sales as well as special sale prices for each and every department.

Fun, family like feel to employees
I loved working at Save on foods as i developed strong relationships with coworkers, supervisors and even customers. The way it worked was that it was a unit, If i was done my wheeler or my deck in stocking and i saw my coworker struggling and falling behind i gladly helped him or her finish as they would do the same for me. There was times when i worked for free for a few hours and stayed late to help out fellow employees. We give to the customer and all of us strongly believed that the customer should get what they want even if that meant losing money on a transaction. I never really ran out of energy because the whole work place is very sociable and the people i worked with were great. It really wasn't work and I often miss working there.

Canadian company
Serviced customers' in deli; ensured all logs were kept up to date in terms of temperatures; took orders; built cross sales of all departments, cleaned deli, work with to staff members; created deli orders solo and with the team when necessary; worked frozen and fresh orders and trained staff. Unionized and Save on Staff always go beyond to help out. Deli is one of the most labor-intensive departments. I enjoyed working with all levels of the company and team mates as well. There is always something we can learn from someone, and you can take it with you to the next company.
ProsPension
ConsSales dedicate your hours. Only 3 main levels get most hours

It All Boils Down to Whom You're Working With
I'm going to be be brutally honest here, reviewing my just-over-a-year experience of working at the Salmon Arm location: Store #975 I have been working at this location since December 2017, and took a break during July and August of 2018 to work at another job (with better compensation) so I cannot comment on the summertime experience, though co-workers said that it's hectically busy. I am about a month away from dwindling my full-time position down to about 8 hours per week, so I can give a general insight to working at this particular location. I was trained on cash, produce, grocery, and deli; Cash: Repetitive as always, and your attitude and how you're feeling that day will make or break it. The people in Salmon Arm are friendly, and seldom have I ever gotten a rude customer. You must be able to push their rudeness aside when it happens, and talk it out with the next few customers who will laugh along at that person's atrocity. Most cashiers are very nice people, but there's those who've been with the company for many years who feel entitled to push you around and order you to do whatever they want. Often times, there's a cashier who will phone the "runaround" person to do stuff like collect baskets - even on a busy day - while they're "busy" (slowly) re-filling the till-side chocolates and other last-minute decisions, or gathering around the customer service desk to chat with people. Grocery: stocking shelves and facing them, sorting out the mass amounts o
ProsJobs themselves aren't bad, you move around a lot (exercise) and the people are generally good
ConsAbysmal compensation, hypocritical co-workers, back-talking and backstabbing

Work hard and you'll never go home
I worked myself hard while working for these guys. Literally, like so hard I lost weight. My job here was also my workout. I went home sore a lot. 1. Whatever I did was never enough, no matter how much I got done in an 8 hour shift. 2. The managers don't manage, they just go on extensive coffee breaks and complain about having to work. 3. I hope you really don't like getting your breaks, because you won't be getting them. Your 30 minute break will always be late. 4. Scheduling is screwed. They don't care that you got no sleep, they want you closing from 2-10 and then there the next morning from 7-3 to open. As an added bonus, the customers are a**holes and waste your time for no reason.
ProsMedical benefits after 6 months.

An above average part-time experience
Typical day was not unlike most other part-time jobs. The biggest benefit was the opportunity for easy advancement and option to move around from department to department. Culture at this specific store was quite good and most people got along well and were friendly to talk with when you had down time. Management was unimpressive and constantly changing save for a few members.

Its fine if you're a student wanting part-time hours. Or if you've been in the grocery retail business for years and you're a people person who can't stop talking for 5 minutes. Otherwise look the other way cause you won't fit in and they won't hesitate to let you know.
