Current Employee - First Assistant Manager in Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Safeway for more than 10 years

Pros

Love most of my employees
Some store managers are awesome and are great resources.

Cons

Not enough hours in the day to do everything
Unrealistic goals
Changing bonus goals/ structure right before the year is over
New contract employees recieve minimum wage until they reach a million hours and then they get a 25 cent raise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with all the programs and audits and concentrate on giving employees more money. Most are great employees that will go elsewhere to make a living. Stop with all these audits, we're in the business to sell groceries, aren't we???

    Former Employee - Supply Chain Manager in Pleasanton, CA

    I worked at Safeway full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work for a Fortune 50 Company
    Room for career growth
    Perfect launching pad to work for the vendor community i.e. Kraft, Clorox, Kelloggs, Del Monte, P & G, Conagra, etc...

    Excellent benefits
    401k
    Superb campus spread out through several buidlings

    Cons

    Low on the pay scale within the industry

    Merit raises happened very infrequenty even though performance objectives above target

    Bonuses are often not allocated due to non-profitability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper level executive team should look at how they want to keep their great talent. Pay them what they are worth. It's unfortunate that so many employees leave each month due to non-untilization of the curren skill set.
