Former Employee - Deli/Meat/Seafood Clerk in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I worked at Safeway Canada full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Wages (thanks to the Union)
ability to work nights/weekends if needed
great staff
Hard work but the time goes by fast!

Cons

Use bullying tactics (mystery shoppers, performance reports, quotas to meet) instead of encouragement/incentives.
Working nights/weekends/holidays, starting at 5 am one day, then working until midnight a couple days later

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You've got to make the place somewhere that kids WANT to work (incentives, activities, etc) instead of reprimanding them (bad "shops", etc. ) ; for $10/hr., it's pretty easy to phone in sick/no show when there's a cool party that night instead.
I don't blame them.
The new hires get little more than minimum wage and job pride/customer skills are a thing of the past - look into more training of interpersonal skills (remember the SuperHost program?)
