    Current Employee - Food Clerk in Coeur d'Alene, ID

    I have been working at Safeway part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, great co-workers, ability to move up if you're the corporate type, good job if you prefer part-time work, customer-focused culture, highly ethical corporate values.

    Cons

    Limited work/life balance due to the nature of the business, can be very stressful at times, highly repetitive work, physically demanding work, investment in employees and hours can be very lean at various times during the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate wasteful spending on promotional materials, paper use and analyze the business need of many positions, such as VPs, DMs and merchandisers.

    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???
