Pros

No degree needed, easy to work your way up, flexible schedules

Cons

MUST JOIN UNION, hard to get 40 hrs a week, most likely 24 hrs a week, Horrible pay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers are snakes, will try to get you fired for any little violation in order to save money & get their bonus. My advice is treat your employees better.

    I worked at Safeway part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Convenient to pick up groceries after getting off shift

    Cons

    No guaranteed hours. I worked 23 hours a week for my first month. I started a second job to help ends meet. We then lost two people in my department and management put me on 6 days a week at 36-38 hours a week. They wanted me to leave my second job to open up my availability. It's a good thing I didn't do it because I heard they were still hiring for the position. My co-workers in other departments said they do this all the time and that my hours would be cut as soon as they hired someone new. Suprise! Suprise! they were right on. Three weeks later my hours were dropped down to 23 again. It's a good thing I didnt leave my second job, I would have been up a creek without a paddle.
