In this economy a job is a job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

ProsWeekly paychecks. Lots of really nice people at store level.

ConsCorporate mentality which translates to: there are 20 people out there waiting to take your job.
Lots of lip service about 'the heart of Safeway' but very little action.
Part time never turns into full time.
Health insurance expensive and not very good coverage on prescriptions. Have to use Safeway pharmacies.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs if it would do any good.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
