    Pros

    Family like environment
    High quality products
    Health Insurance at PT
    Paid vacation

    Cons

    Having to belong to a union, and still getting paid min. wage (four years at min. wage).
    Employees are undervalued and looked over for promotions in favor of younger inexperienced employees.
    With new store, manager has no time for employees. Very curt.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate to your employees. I understand you have a lot of weight on your shoulders with the store being new and expensive, but treating us like the menial minimum wage workers we are just demoralizes us. (and we work our butts off). Get rid of the union Safeway!

    It was once fun, now it seems like the expectations far exceed the support needed for success

    Pros

    You learn a lot from people that have been around for awhile. Stores in the area are clean. You learn a lot of good skills (merchandising ect...)probably mostly due to the area.

    Cons

    The hours in the stores keep getting reduced making it more and more difficult to do our jobs. A lot of people that hold high positions in the company shop in the stores all around HQ so if things are not perfect 24/7 pictures are taken and then shot like a cannon thru company email.

    Advice to Management

    Pick your battles. Perfection cannot be achieved when hours keep getting taken away from the stores. Remember that folks still come to the grocery store for one thing....groceries.
