Typical Retail Job

Current Employee - Deli Department Manager in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Deli Department Manager in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Safeway full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

-decent hours -benefits -vacation pay after one year -flexible schedules in certain departments A nice place to work for a part-time job but going for a career takes time to move up within the company.

Cons

The environment in many stores involves high stress levels in every department and very little motivation to succeed. The goals and constant changes of policy make the overall success of the store unlikely. Politics plays a big role in both the corporate and store level and unless you buddy up with management, the chance of getting promoted is slim to none.

Advice to Management

Safeway is a good company to work for but employees need to be more motivated to work for the companies success and treated with more respect. Instead of politics deciding who gets what, there needs to be a merit based promotion scale and stop with the confusing matrixes for bonuses and promotions.
