Problably one of the best out there (compensation and schedule flexability.

Pharmacist (Current Employee)
Reno, NV

ProsFlexability!! This is the most flexable position I have looked at. We are allowed to work out our own schedule with the other pharmacist in the store. We can do anything from 8hr shifts to 7 on 7 off. This is true the shining point for Safeway. May stay with them becuse of this.

ConsRediculous micromangement in certain issues. For example, all techs must use red ink. ? Dumb!.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou don't seem to stress on the big things because they get done. Relax a little on the little things (red ink).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good company to start out with, but poor payment.

    Checker (Current Employee)
    Tucson, AZ

    I have been working at Safeway


    Pros: Safeway is a great store to start out on, they hire when you have absolutely no experience. The management in my store is excellent, and… Cons: The main downside of working at Safeway is compensation. The payment of employees is very very low, and for a company that has so much… Advice to Senior Management: Definitely increase payment of employees.
