Given me a chance to advance with only a high school diploma

Merchandiser (Current Employee)

ProsMost 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
