Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR

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 have been working at Safeway full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible shifts that is it...

    Cons

    CEO out of touch, no chance for promotion, The company runs one step above being illegal. HIRING FAST TRACKERS THAT THEY DON'T RETAIN, THEY LEAVE THE COMPANY

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Will they listen Heck NO. You have talent right in front of you look for it open your eyes... You have worthless managers/district managers now . The ones that are good you force out or demote etc....

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

    Pros

    ok benefits, salary good, mostly supportive company hierarchy

    Cons

    Not crazy about the direction company is taking. Each pharmacy now has a private room customers/patients not really allowed into. Company was cutting staff hours to pay for these pretty rooms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rigid, syncophantic, unbending
