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 Management

Please let each employee have their own style.

    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 Management

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

    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.
