Productive work place, but can stressful at times.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked here as both a sales assistant and as a Supervisor. I’d say the work/social life balance is pretty decent. Others might disagree - it depends on how confident you are when it comes to putting your foot down, and saying enough is enough if your management keeps asking for overtime. However they can force you to do an extra percentage of your contracted hours. Example: If your contract is 16 hours, they can forcibly top it up to 20 hours that week. If you refuse to work it still then it could lead to a contract review. You only get a salary as assistant manager or store manager and above. Supervisor or anything below is paid by the hour, but generally a decent wage. And usually plenty of overtime. Im on a 16 hour contract and I’ve generally been working 30-35 hours in both my store and covering other stores. You may get asked to cover another local store within driving distance If you do own vehicle. In my own experience there are generally a lot of chances to advance in you position. I was taken on as Supervisor but in the area there are a lot of recruitments being advertised. So I could apply for assistant manager for example in another store if I wanted to.If you are hardworking and do the job correctly then job security is pretty much a given. I would say the bad thing about this company, and many similar companies is the active selling at the till. Being a supervisor I don’t have to commit as much to this as the sales assistants, but managing a team I do have to have some knowledge and approach to boost these sales within the store. You have to pretty much - 

Pros

Salary for management, job advancement is a given, friendly staff/team members generally get along.

Cons

Poor Head Office management, pressure to hit targets, only 1 week paid bereavement leave.

Productive and fun workplace

It felt like my 2nd home, and my family. What an amazing bunch of people to be around. So supportive, so lovely and welcoming. Not only were they supportive professionally, but also personally too. If you had anything going on you can be sure that they will be there for you, a shoulder to cry on. Best people to ever meet.

I worked at savers on work experience hoping to get a job out of it at the end of the experience they never intended on taking on any staff as they can get people to work for free through dole and as soon as ther work experience is over they get in more people to work for free
