Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – November 7, 2015
A typical day at work was almost always fast pasted. Some of the Supervisors and managers were rude at times and the Co-workers were nice. I learned to use my communication skills and Customer service skills more. The hardest part of the job was standing long hours and dealing with some of the customers but the customers always come first. The most enjoyable part was being around my co-workers who were from different cultures and the customers who made you smile.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – March 25, 2019
Working at savers during halloween is always an adventure. They work hard to make everyday fun for employees and the customers. I would definitely work for this company again if they raised their salary.
NEW ENGLAND ADS MANAGER (Current Employee) – New England – March 25, 2019
Inadequate work life balance with typical week at 70 hours with scheduled duties 7 days a week. Work load is constantly added to with no regard to time commitment or impact on current work load or personal obligations.
Customer sevice/Production team member (Current Employee) – Fargo, ND – March 24, 2019
The team members are a wonderful group to deal with. The work is physical but you are able to do the work and feel good at the end of the day. You are able to meet the most wonderful customers the frequent the store.
Good workplace, and fellow employees, less than Ideal management
Donation Center Representative (Former Employee) – Valley, WA – March 21, 2019
The workplace was great, the Donation center was unpredictable with the amount of traffic, but the coworkers were very willing to help when things got backed up. There were many times however when management seemed to not understand what everyone's jobs were, and would assign tasks that were either against what your job duties were when you still had those, or just completely unreasonable. I would recommend this as a job, but not as a long term solution, unless management has drastically changed since then.
Savers is a well known company for a for-profit, global thrift retailer. It has decent prices and a lot of clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. that customers can choose from. A typical day at Savers well it depends on the days. There were days they were really busy such as on 50% off days and days they were slow. The management was awful. They would talk to employees and customers rudely with no respect. Very unorganized. I didn't enjoy working there at all. For the 3 years that I was there I learned a lot about how to treat and help motivate my other co workers. I learnt how to close out my register at the end of the day.
discounts for employees
short breaks, unfair, not enough hours, favoritism, disrespectful
New Bedford - Production Team Member (Former Employee) – New Bedford, MA – March 19, 2019
I was getting verbally abused by both managers of the store and being given less fun tasks because of how different I was. I was made fun of for my mental illness of pulling my hair out and stuttering. I “cared” too much about customers which isn’t a thing in my book. Customer service is extremely important.
Shoe sorter,And roller (Former Employee) – Savers is on Boston Post Road in Orange CT. – March 14, 2019
My job was sorting the shoes and rolling them out to the floor. And then making sure the shoes were in order by color. I loved working there. Everyone pretty much got along to.On sale days it would be more work. But I didn't mine at all.And if there were cloths are anything on the floor,I would pick them up. And put them in there rightful places.
When there was a sale. We would get treated to lunch.
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – March 14, 2019
Whoever thought tuesday thru saturday is a good schedule needs some help. This was my most boring job i've ever had. Eight hours of standing and pressing buttons... It's very clear that corporate has never worked a day in production their entire lives, mostly because of the policy of no headphones.
Bed & Bath (Former Employee) – Norristown, PA – March 13, 2019
Working At Savers was a great . The employees was nice everybody got along with everybody . the only thing about that store is they put everything on the shelf that came in rather it was dirty or not .
Mid Manager (Former Employee) – New Hampshire – March 9, 2019
Company talks the talk and has no clue about how to walk the walk. Standards and policies should be enforced equally and applied to management as well. Management should be evaluated on more than just profits. Management should be required to explain how each department contributes to success of company.
Changes in management can result in huge changes in work experience, customer experience, donor experience and store appearance. Senior management does not care. Stores can be quite bigoted as well.
Good deeds in theory
Very secretive & major changes occur without warning
Retail Sales Manger (Former Employee) – Kahului, HI – March 8, 2019
My opportunity at Savers allowed me to use my creativity and customer service skills to better arrange and manage the entire floor of the store. My focus in my role was to ensure customer service meet/beat the Savers standards!
Fun staff, able to be creative

typical day at work consists of meeting new people and interacting. you always learn something new at savers. management is good, under control. workplace culture is great. hardest part of the job - it really wasn't all that difficult but if i had to choose one hard thing it would be some upset costumers. most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people everyday.
Front End Supervisor (Former Employee) – Liberty, MO – March 6, 2019
First thing was opening the drawers and counting money in the safe. When all was verified as correct, I would do the daily deposit and change order. When financial obligations were met I would instruct the store be opened for business. I learned good customer service, how to deal with vendors. The hardest part of the job was watching the theft of product from customers. The best part was a lot of one on one with a lot of different people.
