Pros

Great company when owned and operated by Dimatteo family then Safeway bought it and have done a wonderful job of running it into the ground.

Cons

Safeway's "My way or the highway approach/one size fits all'" Does not to this day understand the Chicago market and its diverse clietele. Company functions in an atmosphere of fear,negative reinforcement, and micromanagement. George Orwell's "1984" is a perfect analogy to how this company works. The "Peter Principal" is alive and well here. Watch your back..."They smile in your face all the while they want you replaced...the BACKSTABBERS" Cameras,Cameras,Cameras

Advice to Management

DOMINICKS was sucessful because they catered to the unique,dynamic and diverse customer base they enjoyed. They have a condescending approach to both their customers and employees. Their "world class service"program is a sham. The store managers only care about shop scores because that is the "Holy Grail" for bonuses. The store can fall apart and do no business, but God forbid those scores are bad. The experienced employees DO NOT MOVE UP BECAUSE THEY GET MOVED OUT!!! Try going into your stores after 7pm and see no help,quit making a few select stores look nice for Steve Burd while the rest of the stores disintegrate.

    Pros

    Decent health benefits, great perks such as a cafe, Starbucks, gym, etc. Some very good and mentoring mid management. Great location. Good place to get your feet wet.

    Cons

    Too much politics, compensation is not very competitive, some managers keep a lot of low quality workers and work the good ones to the bone to compensate.
