Current Employee - Cashier in Philadelphia, PA

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

Pros

I am just a high school kid, and it's nice to not have a whole lot of responsibility. The managers understand that I am going to mess around.

Cons

Corporate is getting much tougher on its regs. I am required to do some goofy stuff, like wave people into my line and recite ordered lines.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please let each employee have their own style.

    I worked at Safeway part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Many chances for promotion. Hard workers are noticed. Almost all of employees are carrying, they work to achieve a family based.

    Cons

    Hours, seems hours are a big problem. Over hiring possibly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help morning checkers. My only advice would be change to two checkers in the morning, maybe another joins at 6:30am, rather 7:00am.
