Cashier (Current Employee) – Westland, MI – June 12, 2017
I like the customer interaction and the job duties are not hard, but it just doesn't pay enough. The manager is great but Corporate is cheap. No supplies for a very small break room. Not even paper towel.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CA – June 8, 2017
When I was first hired I scooped ice cream. Then about 6 to 9 mos later I was promoted to cashier. When they didn't need me as a cashier I would help with setting up new displays of inventory. Also helping out the people stocking the store. Then I got my own area of the store to keep stocked. During christmas I worked the night shift stocking overhead areas with the toys, cosmetics and gift boxes we would get in during holidays. I learned everything at this job. How to work as a team player was probably the best thing also self motivation. Being able to think on your feet.
Cashier/Clerk (Former Employee) – Whitmore Lake, MI – December 30, 2016
I worked for this company for 7 years. In that time, it took them 4 years to give me a raise while others around me with less seniority got raise after raise. The store management is a nightmare and likes to play favorites causing the turnover rate on employees to be very high. Most people who work there for a number of years simply keep their heads down and do their tasks so as not to become the target of a manager having a bad day. Some employees even enjoy throwing others under the bus when it suits them, something I have seen first hand. Higher management is cliquey and relentlessly bully its employees rather than work with them. Intimidation isn't above them either, physical and psychological. There have been occasions when higher management have been known to yell at store managers IN FRONT of customers, loom over shorter employees when "correcting" issues, and even gang up on employees during "conferences". Even terminations were a production with either a manager acting nice then doing a 180 and firing you or higher management interrogating you like a war criminal before releasing you to do a walk of shame out of the building. Working for this company is just for the paychecks than for a career.
Clerk (Former Employee) – Westland, Michigan – May 1, 2015
A Typical day at work will consist of Standing around doing nothing. 115 People were a max of people coming through line on a 8 hour shift. The only thing I have learned was keeping my composure. Management is a total joke. No one can take responsibility for there actions. I would get Scolded for asking a question, Like asking for more change. I was told to do something than no one would tell me how to do it than I would do it my way and than get scolded for doing it wrong. Management would also tell other Co-Workers about issues that other Co-Workers had. The hardest part of the job was trying to keep busy with nothing to do. The enjoyable part of the job were the regulars and the sweet people who come into the store.
Accounts Receivable Clerk (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – June 25, 2014
Working at Sav-On Drugs was amazing. They gave me my first look into the accounting working field. I enjoyed working with everyone wihin the company. Not only did I work with accounting but I was taught purchasing and it was always fun working there. My objection was the very high upper management. He was a very unfriendly man who, even if it was his company, expected everyone to ask "how high?" when he said jump. He did not respect his employees and was more interested in hiring people who he could mold to be what he wanted. Having experience is important and everyone, including me, is looking to find their career and company. However, this was not an option because as soon as you got comfortable and able to do everything that was expected of you, they would move you to something else because someone new and younger was brought in to take your place.
