I have been working at Safeway part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Flexible schedule for college students
Pay is good...eventually
Very easy job, 4-8 hours on autopilot
Union makes it impossible for anyone with half of a brain to get fired
Bonus pay on Sunday, paid vacations

Cons

Schedules are apparently decided with a blindfold and a dartboard
Boring, tedious work that will challenge you in no way
Secret shopping program can be hard until you figure out exactly what you are supposed to parrot
Dress code is still archaic

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Safeway

    Pros

    Customer Service, Meeting people. Getting to know the other coworkers. finding who's really nice behind the break room. Watching younger employees getting a chance at there first job.

    Cons

    Management bullying and fellow employees who's really just mean. I truly believe if you don't like your work you shouldn't work there especially longer than 5 yr.s

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk a bit to your fellow store management let them know they don't have to be so hard on the helper employees
