Used to be a career
Manager (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAOctober 15, 2018
When I first got hired back in 2004, Save Mart could have been a career but today it can only be considered a job. Due to a weak Union, pay, incentives and benefits have decreased. Even with promotions, I am making less then I did 10 years ago due to everything that has been taken away. To move up in this company you have to know the right people. It is like this in most companies, however, Save Mart created a new promotion process that is supposed to make it objective but I have seen first hand that this is not the case and managers can work around these steps to promote who they like. It is also a rotating schedule and you shifts can vary week to week. It is expected that you will have to work weekends, nights and holidays which creates a negative work / life balance.

Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CAJanuary 23, 2018
worked here as a kid, great part time job. physically demanding. there was a required uniform. during the summer going out to the parking lot to collect the carts was dangerous if you take precautions before you go out in the heat.

Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAJanuary 16, 2018
its part of a union which is always good for the employee. You get decent beneifts if you qualify. The schedule is constantly changing week to week so it sucks. you work holidays and weekends and you never really have time for family or friends at all. it eats away your life with whatever pay. its fine for a starter job but wouldnt recommend it for a long term choice.

Been here for 10 years, and you don't get promoted unless you are related to someone in management.even if you work hard you are over looked the slackers get a better schedule than the ones that work hard.Its not how hard you work its who you know/related to now.
Pros

Cons
Work hard and dont get recognition, hours all over the place..management wants 120% but they wont give you half of that

Can be stressful
Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CA 93720September 3, 2017
If you received a regular schedule and normal hours the job would be bearable. unfortunately you don't get regular hours and when you do work most times your coworkers don't work as hard as they could. Its okay when its slow but when its busy we need help. Good Benefits! Weekly pay! but its only 50 cents over minimum wage. Also a Union job that requires a mouth swab drug test.
Pros
Benefits, hour lunch, union
Cons
union, lazy coworkers, hours

Usher/Ticket Taker (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAJuly 21, 2017
In this position I greet and assist guests with ticketing issues and answering questions that arise at any Save Mart Center events. This position requires for me to represent the facility with outstanding friendly custom service. As a usher/ticket taker I have to report problems or concerns to appropriate departments and keep upper management informed of all issues.

Cool place to work with some great managers. Not all are great but that is to be expected I guess.
CUSTOMER SERVICE AMBASSADOR (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAJune 22, 2017
Pretty good place to work. Most of the benefits are great. They don't cover orthodontics which I need but dental is great!

Although it is Union, corporate has been slowly taking away benefits so that plus is really turning into a minus really fast.
Pros
Friendly co-workers
Cons
Bad benefits
