    I have been working at Safeway part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You can train in multiple departments of the store for variety and increased hours.

    Cons

    I've been working for 2.5 years and still make minimum wage because I've been waiting for the union contract to renew. I have had several scheduled wage increases that have not appeared on my paycheck because minimum wage increased above several years' worth of wage increases. All that to say, you get raises in tiny incremental amounts. If minimum wage increases with the cost of living as it should, you will still be making minimum wage for years. Also, they will do their very best to schedule you with less than 20 hours per week so that you will not qualify for health insurance. The more employees they have working without health insurance, the better they sit financially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as real people who need scheduled hours so they can feed their families instead of disposable pawns.

    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.
