Former Employee - Courtesy Clerk in Milpitas, CA

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

Pros

The work was relatively easy and you weren't in charge of others. There is always something to do and it provides a great way to exercise because it is labor intense.

Cons

The job was hard work, especially placing the go back items on the shelves and retrieving the carts. Lines are long sometimes and customers will complain because of the wait. Taking out the trash can get very messy at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat your people, We have lives and families but perhaps you do not care about that. If you aren't a "YES MAN" then you will go nowhere with this company

    Pros

    Lots of interesting drama to keep you occupied some nice people

    Cons

    Long lines most stores have terrible assistant managers not enough hours to take care of customers they way they want to be taken care and pass audits that corporate pushes on on employees that failing could risk there job so they pass the audits but give terrible service to consumers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics take care of your customers at check out managers need to work on motivating there employees more than they work on stupid checklist don't waste so much money on tags make everything a decent all round good price always in stead of having blow out sales like 5 dollar ten pound bags of sugar and then having other prices jacked up to compensate consumers will come buy your ridiculous sale stuff leave and go to Walmart for the rest of there groceries make the deli worth going to get a sandwich quality isn't good for the price
