OK pay + lazy workers + horrible management = Too Many Headaches

Former Employee - Department Manager in Baltimore, MD
Former Employee - Department Manager in Baltimore, MD

I worked at Safeway full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The benefits are good. There's a union, but that only benefits people who receive a lot of disciplinary actions.

Cons

Managers consistently try to steal hours from departments (but maybe that's learned from corporate). As far as the bakery is concerned, you have to deal with lazy coworkers, a lot of call-outs, and work not completed. Not a team atmosphere. If you are good at your job, you are expected to pick up the slack for someone who isn't.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to interview candidates and try to actually hire people who will perform the tasks that you need performed. MANAGE your staff and SOLVE problems or at least try to help solve them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a pay cut so you can actually afford to pay decent wages to those who bring in the money. Cut the fat and you will do well. Its the fight of your life to keep this company going, actually make a intellectual attempt at saving your company, dumbasses!
