Pros

Working with different people. Learning the ins and outs of running a business. Learning how things work in the corporate world. It's physical work to help you stay somewhat in shape. Learning different computer technologies.

Cons

Once you become management at Safeway it is expected to be your entire life. Expect to work 6 days or more a week. Expect to work 12 hours or more a day. Expect to get yelled at if you do all those things and something doesn't go right. Expect to deal with contradictions daily. I've worked a 12 hour day and was told I do too much, worked an 11 hour day and was told I do too little. If you want to be management be 25 and under with no children, because you won't see your family much.

Advice to Management

Get some new blood in there. New ideas, more well thought ideas.
