  1. Hard to move up due to seniority in each store. And because the company is downsizing.

    I worked at Albertsons

    Pros

    Depending on your store director and management hard work gets noticed.

    If u need or want more hours just ask.

    Weekly paycheck.

    Union so you get paid for every little thing.

    Most senior employees are the baby boomers in their 40's 50's so they may retire soon leaving good position open for those who are hungry.

    Cons

    No set schedule.

    Hard workers can't move up quickly due to seniority. And the downsizing of the company.

    Even if you are good worker you must wait your turn to get a promo. Most workers have been there 20 years+ so it could be a long wait.

    Some managers tell the Employees what to do, then go in the office and kick their feet up or party.

    Advice to Management

    Be more on the floor or in the check-stand and stop hiding away.

    Pros

    Fellow employee's at store level as well as district and division level. Wages have been a bit above local competition. If you qualify for a bonusing position (store director and above
    ) then the possibilities in addition to wages can be substantial.

    Cons

    Not sure how this Safeway merger will all play out at division level.
