    Pros

    People need to eat, so work is fairly steady, if you are working in areas or shifts your co-workers don't want or can't handle.

    Cons

    Must work holidays, split days off. Safeway also thinks a worker that punches in early will work through lunch and will work over time should be reprimanded not rewarded. With this in mind each store has only a few key employees that must make up for those not willing or unable to carry there share of the workload. I have a co-worker that has to work 7 days a week just because management won't take 10min 2 days a week to fill out reports. The company is also starting to spend more time on writing reports about how to get things done than just fixing the problems. Workers are expected to use broken equipment to complete job tasks this includes order writing handhelds, pallet jacks, loading dock lifts, printers, refrigeration, and even pens are not supplied.

    Advice to Management

    Stop surrounding yourself with "yes men" be man enough to handle feedback we have to everyday. You need to get back to the basics, out of the office and into the stores and distribution centers. Start promoting from inside the company (right now a 7-11 asst. manager is considered more qualified to manager our stores than our own management.)
