    I worked at Safeway part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and ability to move within different departments of the store.

    Cons

    Hours can either be too much or too little. Schedule is very random. One day you're opening, the next you close. Takes a while to get a raise. Secret shoppers are annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to check up on the department managers. Some of them let the power go way in to their heads that they become lazy and sit down and get fat doing so.

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

    I have been working at Safeway full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
