Checker/Cashier (Former Employee) – Hanford, CA – August 4, 2017
Working for save mart gave me a lot of life experience, getting to know the various customers that come to your store to shop, and getting to know the diverse cultures and lifestyles of each individual person was great experience for me. I enjoyed the atmosphere working for save mart, the crew I worked with got a long and blended well as a unit together.

Worked for the company for about six to seven years and not once was satisfied as an employee.. when company downsized they informed employees at the last moment.. some employees lost their homes due ti this.
District Supervisor, Loss Prevention (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – June 14, 2019
The company is firmly stuck in the 1980's style business culture where the bosses are bosses and anything below that is looked down upon while they drink in their offices.
Poor top down communication across departments along with unsustainable business practices. Company structure resembled an upside-down pyramid. Middle Management took the brunt of the work while upper leadership did little (arrive at 10am; leave at 2pm type of work day) and most managers felt unsupported by leadership.
However, work life balance was fantastic as there is very little overview and projects being turned in were rarely ever checked, used, or reviewed so at 5pm you could call it a day and go home.
Since no one is looking at you, yearly reviews (if they occur) are always fantastic as no one knows what exactly you do.
