    A truly unpleasant place to work with no respect shown by district or division management

    Pros

    few and far between. Used to be a great company to work for and you were proud to tell people you worked for Safeway. Now I am ashamed of the conditions of the stores, carts and quality of the food

    Cons

    Back stage personnel work 8-5 with 3 days weekends, so support for store level employees that work all holidays, weekends with little or no regard to families. Upper management will demand that store management work holidays with little or no notice regardless of plans that may have been made. Threats and intimidation are the normal course of communication from upper management. A true hell! Young kids are becoming store managers with little or no experience. They call in sick so they can have their birthdays off take hours from the departments scheudles so they make the extermely tough requirements of grocery map. Won't hire needed help so they can save money and try to make a bounus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back in touch with your retail level employees and stop treating people as if they are not human

    Pros

    The health benifits are good.

    Cons

    Just about everything else. My manager screwed me over when it came time for me to tranfer to a store closer to my house. She waited 2 weeks to sign thew paper work. And the store that had a place for me filled the position.
