    Former Employee - Courtesy Clerk in Milpitas, CA

    I worked at Safeway part-time for less than a 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
