Cashier (Former Employee) – Tracy, CA – May 19, 2014
Employment was fun and productive. Management, co-workers, and customers were friendly and positive. Ending employment due to medical reasons was tough as I did not want to leave. However, it was delightful and full of life while employed.
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.
Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Visalia, CA – June 13, 2019
My job was to bag groceries and help the customers to their car. I also collected the carts from the parking lot and put them in the designated area. I swept up the store and cleaned the bathrooms hourly and also took back the groceries that the customers didn't want or changed there mind about. I enjoyed helping the customers and talking with them on the way to the car.there was nothing difficult about this job.everyone that worked there was cheerful and helpful.If i got offered a job at save-mart again i would go back in a heartbeat.
