Pros

The pay was great compared to my previous employment Great relationship with the other General Managers in our District, sharing people and trading product or advice when needed

Cons

Upper Management treatment was horrible, there was always aa fear factor when they were coming and they would nit pick everything. I never heard a positive thing from any of them Long Hours No days off Catering to

Advice to Management

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

    great advancement opportunities, potential to make 6 figures with a bonus as a manager, excellent benefits if you work for a non union store, union stores do not offer as much and the whole benefit package is different

    Cons

    very stressful, high demands, very "corporate" and all about policy, no grey, all black or white, they say that they are family oriented but when you are salary as a manager or assistant it seems like you can't be sick and your always on call, you cant even shop in the store on your own time without being asked tons of questions so you pretty much have to shop else where

    Advice to Management

    watch everything you do and follow policy to the tee! Safeway is big on policy which is a good thing but sometimes things are grey, not always black or white but sometimes policy is set aside which can be a bad thing, not always as consistant when it comes to some policies like WIC violations

    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.
