I worked at Safeway full-time (more than an year)

Pros

If you are serious about becoming a manager or excelling in some other fashion, don't be afraid to voice it. Demand it and prove you are both capable and deserve it. This is what I did and at 18 years old I was the youngest department manager there.

Cons

Many workers at Safeway have been there a very long time and have become absorbed to the point where Safeway is there life. They live for drama and seek any ups and downs to live through. It was hard to balance the delicate line of being social and keeping to myself. I don't like to be involved in drama but its hard to do when you socialize and become friendly.

    I have been working at Safeway part-time (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
