I have been working at Safeway full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
Coworkers are for the most part alright.
There's always work
Most regulars are kind
Benefits are good
Good eye and dental plans
Learn new skills
Good deal with 24 hour fitness gym membership
The Safeway products that workers get discounts on are actually better than a lot of name brands.
Can get some good deals on Just For U
Good job opportunities for disabled workers
Good as a first job experienceCons
Pay is barely over minimum wage
Never enough people hired
Never enough people stay
The union initiation fee is more than most are willing to pay about 300-600
Many rude customers
They spread out their workers very thin
Even with a skeleton crew they tell us that there's too many hours being used by workers
Not enough people for the amount of work done. Almost always under staffed
Union dues once a month is in the double digits, almost looks like one third of pay check.
Opportunities to move up vary, depends what department you're in.
Too many can't transfer to other stores or departments.
Deli department in particular is under paid. Also customer service.
New Just For U system makes workers have to go online and add their 10% discount instead of it being automatic.
10% discount only covers Safeway brand products not entire store
Have to fill out safety observations on a weekly basis, gets old very fast
TV in breakroom only shows a circulated Safeway advertisement and Safeway employee extremely basic How to Do Your Job videos. That workers don't watch most of the time.
With the stricter health department requirements being enforced, pressure on departments that handle food has doubled.
Many stores have not been renovated and have a lot of outdated or problematic equipment.
They don't really listen to employees. Employee opinion doesn't mean anything.
A lot of guilt tripping if you call in sick even once.
Could be truly sick and they'll still want you to work.
Union protects even bad workers. If a worker passes probation they could be a horrible worker for a long time before getting fired, talking years.
New contract benefits have been reduced, and you pay more.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
