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

Pros

Most of the higher executives are great to work for, however most of the middle management employees are sometimes difficult, especially Store Managers who think their store is their "Kingdom" and won't accept suggestions.

Cons

Safeway expects a LOT from their salaried employees, and most are on call 7 days a week. The bonus system leaves a lot to be desired. There are too many factors above you that have to make their numbers before you can make your bonus no matter how hard you have worked all year to increase your own department numbers. Also, departments are not given the tools to do their job effectively, nor the hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ask your District Managers to give the same support to ALL departments, and visit employees in those departments and give some encouragement.
