Persistance PAYS off!

Floral Manager (Former Employee)
Los Gatos, CA

ProsIf 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.

ConsMany 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
