I have been working at Safeway

Pros

travel a lot, maybe work 4-5 hours a day and drive 2-3. Installations have supporting docs and can usually get a hold of somebody if you have issues. Work days most of the time. No overtime. Lot's of holidays.

Cons

The pay is low for the position and area. Healthcare etc benefits are expensive. A lot of store managers are jerks. Stores are incredibly dirty.

    I have been working at Safeway

    Pros

    Good Pay (Once your "training" is finally over), an OK place to start a career i guess. One of the few some what stable form of retail right now

    Cons

    Insane, Predatory secret shopper program. any possible advancement is bogged down by months of procedure. The company shuffles management around far too often, which doesn't allow the staff and management to build a relationship

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End the secret shopper program, your employees customer service professionals, they don't need safeways secret police to make sure they are greeting with a smile, making a connection, thanking by last name, offering a carryout and giving a parting comment. Anyone who has spent any time in grocery should already be doing that.

    I worked at Safeway

    Pros

    As a first job this company will teach you many things but will leave you in the dark about others

    Cons

    It may have just been the store that I was at for four years but the hours that I worked were rarely appreciated or rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should care more about the employees since they are the legs on which Safeway walks on And that position deserves respect
