No opinion of CEO

I worked at Safeway part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Most in-store managers are great. With an extended history, there are protocols for nearly any problem.

Cons

You are required to 'practice' your customer service daily. They require every employee to practice customer service through role-play with other employees. This becomes a tedious time waster.

    I worked at Safeway part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    pay, some of the customers are nice. I made over $21.00 an hour and had triple time pay on holidays. However, I was under the old contract. Current employees have to wait longer to make that amount and schedules are a pain. To get a day off is like pulling teeth. If you value your family and your life outside of work...do not work here. People are rude and management always takes their side.

    Cons

    everything, management, customers, management, management

    Advice to Management

    Learn people skills and how to talk to your employees. You help them they will help you.
