It pays the bills, but it doesn't seem like any upward movement.

I have been working at Safeway

Pros

There really is no good reason to work in the store, but as a delivery driver, the money is decent, and you're on your own which is nice. Most of the employees are pretty cool too.

Cons

You have to deal with people in the store sometime. Although most are cool, there are a few that like to make life difficult, but I guess that's everywhere.

Also, no upward movement unless you want to be a store manager which requires 40+ hrs which can be tough if you have a family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should allow the employees to give feedback on management in the store. Hold them accountable. The managers should be subject to a review, just so you know what really goes on.

    I worked at Safeway

    Pros

    The main reason for staying with safeway for so long is the benefits they offer. They pay is decent compared to other grocery stores. Many paid days off, and a paid birthday.

    Cons

    Job is boring and repetitive. For a people person this job would not be as bad, however if you are not a people person, going to work can be a drag

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if it were easier to change an employees schedule. It seems that once you are "locked" into a certain schedule it is difficult to adjust it later. The company is open 7 days a week. It should be feesable to modify they days an employee works.

    Pros

    it has been steady work never laid off

    Cons

    always cutting employees hours, can work a variety of shifts in a single week, takes long time to become a journeyman and get pay raises. and the few that do get hours have been there forever. then they want to send you home early to cut hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat employees better finacially billion dollar corperation paying the people that make that money for them very little
