    Pros

    Safeway employees are unionized, so working for Safeway you get excellent health care benefits that kick in after you work there for 1 yr. Safeway also has a pretty good 401(k) program that kicks in after a year. Their support structure for working with employees to constantly improve customer service is great. They are family friendly, and will work with employees to adjust their work hours if needed because of family.

    Cons

    Safeway's personal employee evaluation process is less than stellar, and doesn't really have what you could call any structure to it. This makes it difficult to know where management wants you to improve, and to give you critical feedback. Expect Safeway to work your fingers to the bone, and to squeeze every drop of work out of you that it can, asking you to do things beyond what your job should call for.

    Advice to Management

    It's good to make sure that your customers are finding what they need, but instructing every employee to make sure he or she stops and asks pretty much every customer he or she sees is the customer is finding what they need or needs help is overkill and is bugging the customer. Safeway customers are smart; if they need help, they'll ask for it. They don't want to be bothered constantly during their shopping experience by employees.
