Working for Safeway was okay.

Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Safeway part-time for more than a year

ProsMost of the managers were very friendly and respectful. Most of them were very understanding of my disabilities and worked with me.

ConsThere were a couple of managers that really did not care. One of the managers would schedual me for more hours than I was physically able to work then he threatened to fire me if I did not work my schedualed shifts. One manager wanted me to be in 5 places at once and would yell at me for not getting stuff done when she would not allow me to leave the bagging area. She also wanted me to clock my sweeps without actually checking the store for spills and hazards.

Advice to Senior ManagementPutting extra pressure on your employees doesn't always get you better results. Sometimes it just stresses them out and lowers morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
