Multi purpose clerk/ Graveyard (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – April 13, 2019
threw freight faster than the night crew manager, was trusted to be alone with store keys while still on probation, learned frozen learned bakery/deli, produce and ultimately became a cashier during the day sleep a little go back in at night sleep Work night crew the night then that morning would be the same day I’d have be the closing cashier because as long as there’s an 8 hr gap you’re available. I was over worked and exhausted and thought “well it should payoff when I see my Checks”. All that work all that responsibility (I even learned aris: signage and printing and hanging new price tags) all that overtime all the fake smiles and small talk with managers and key carriers and promised growth opportunity and I still got a paycheck one week for $126.00. after two years of being underpaid.i left making a whopping 11.85 an hr. Only raises available are based on the hours you put in. When you do work a certain amount of hours and you feel like you’ve been slaving but receive a 10 cent raise and your boss that makes 50 times your earned income says “you’ve earned it” pats you on the back it’s just like FORGET THIS. IM A SINGLE MOTHER AND I HAVE TO REPORT TO A SIGNIFICANTLY YOUNGER DUDE IN HIS EARLY 20s WHOS DATING the bosses DAUGHTER SO HE GETS 16 AN HR WHILE I CANT EVEN SEEM TO BREAK 12 hr. BUT DOING THE SAME WORK IF NOT MORE WORK BECAUSE THAT DUDE IN CHARGE LIKES TO TAKE 30 MINUTE BREAKS THEN A LUNCH !!? BEFORE U KNOW IT YOURE DONE WITH AN ENTIRE TRUCK LOAD.
Make you feel good by showing recognition to you for hard work
Loyal customers, clean and fun work Invierment fast pace,
Bakery Clerk/ Deli (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – April 22, 2019
I loved working for save mart supermarkets, it taught me customer service, and showed me how good some people still are, the management was great as long as u communicate with them, fellow employees were very competitive.

This job is very demanding. A typical day at work moves quickly and requires the ability to stay focused and driven. You have to be flexible and enjoy working on somewhat repetitive tasks. If you like making conversation with customers, that's good - there isn't a lot of time to talk to co-workers. The hardest part of the job is keeping going for long hours.
Senior Director of Operations (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – March 24, 2019
Hated going to work everyday working for Save Mart. Culture has been lost and the company is going in a different direction every quarter. The team is lost and confused. Turning over good management Team members because of poor communication and lack of direction.

Not Provided (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – February 25, 2019
Company is struggling financially. They are WAY behind technologically and are trying to improve but don't have the money to invest in new software or training. If there is training it is totally online. No travel to conferences or offsite training. Want a certification related to your job, forget it.
Super nice people to work with. Didn't meet a single bad person while working there.
Chances are they will be out of business or absorbed within 5-10 years. They are limping along but can't compete because they are so far behind.
Cashier (Former Employee) – McGehee, AR – February 21, 2019
The job overall is ok if you weigh the pros and cons but to me the job is not worth working. minimum wage and not enough hours. The manager at the store i worked for was never direct with things often leaving me wondering how to do things that I later figured out on my own or from a co worker.
Savemart pharmacy made false promises, went back on their word, cut hours, and had no sight for building a strong pharmacy for the future.
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – California – February 18, 2019
Savemart pharmacy made false promises, went back on their word, cut hours, and had no sight for building a strong pharmacy for the future. They had no advertising or marketing plan in place for the pharmacy to help build a strong pharmacy. Lay out of the was not conducive for good pharmacy business. It was in a location where guests or customers couldn't find us which made us not readily accessible. Even after being open a year people did not know/realize the store had a pharmacy (even doctors.)
