I worked at Safeway full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Starting at Safeway as a courtesy clerk and ultimately moving up the management in 5 years has allowed me to gain valuable management experience that will be useful in future job openings. It does depend on the store you work for, but there are many with great people that make the day-to-day tasks more enjoyable.

Cons

It's your basic retail situation so working on holidays, sporadic schedules, dealing with irate customers are all part of the job.

    I have been working at Safeway full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Enjoy meeting customers and public. Nice to see your .grow over the years. So far the paycheck hasn't bounced

    Cons

    Micro managed by district manager, map hours cut to 105%. Upper managment has lost touch with the frontline employees. No respect, Senior management uses threats and intimidation. When the economy rebounds there will be a mass exodus of experiinced employees. Meat wrappers now get a 10 cent an hour raise after 5000 hours. SAD

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get back to basics, treat your employees with respect and value your experianced works. They are your core.. Look at your stock it is an all time low and so is moral in your stores. Shoppers are tuned in to this
