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

Pros

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

Cons

Corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

As if it would do any good.

    I worked at Safeway part-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
