I have been working at Safeway full-time (More than a year)

Pros

People are generally friendly and capable. Work hours are okay. Very nice gym. Employment is stable.

Cons

There are too many layers of management who often tend to manage up rather than develop and look out for their team. The environment is very political and people like to protect their turf. Most operations focus on short-term objectives. Terrible health benefits and pay tends to be on the low end. Very old school in the way the company is run, reflected by the formal dress code of shirts and ties. Employees are rewarded by getting the occasional opportunity to go casual!

Advice to Management

Restructure to take out layers of management. From the top down, build in objectives to invest in, develop and mentor their teams and create 360 degree reviews. Develop a culture that is faster moving and innovative - take some cues from the high tech sector.

    I have been working at Safeway full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    55,000 a year starting out with no degree

    Cons

    expected to work 60-70 hours a week. the company does not give enough help for the stores. Your store has to work at 100% with 95% of the hours to do so.

    Advice to Management

    remember where you came from, treat your employees with respect!
