I have been working at Safeway Canada full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They encourage you to move up within the company and are very flexible in terms of letting you leave early on long weekends or when the weather is bad.

Cons

Longer hours, older computer systems, older real estate. I think the longer than normal hours are maybe a deterrent to people volunteering to work more hours

Advice to Management

I think by making longer hours a requirement, people are less likely to donate their own time.

    I worked at Safeway Canada full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Unionized wages and hours (which lead to regular, though relatively small raises), well defined job expectations, and predictable scheduling make it a rather stress-free company to work for.

    Cons

    Advancement in the company is slow due to union rules. Unless you intend to work there for a considerable amount of time, ie, to make a career of it there, there could well be better prospects.

    Cons

    Unions Some people use the unions as an excuse not to work it seemed My store was often understaffed

    Advice to Management

    More hiring and less unions Also, invest some more money in non-computerized training The training videos are tedious and non-effective
