    I worked at Safeway part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work isn't too difficult, but memorizing product codes for vegetables and fruits can get a bit tedious. The people are generally nice.

    Cons

    The occasional grumpy customer who doesn't appreciate your help. You can't really avoid that anywhere.

    I have been working at Safeway full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Everybody needs to eat so there is good job stability. Salary and Benefit package is competitive.

    Cons

    Minimum 10 hour days. Could be 15 or more hours depending on what happens in the day. Weekends, holidays, evenings are all on the table. Leads to not spending a whole lot of time with your family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is top-heavy. Trim some of the fat and focus on the stores and the customer experience. Many times we spend more time playing our own internal "games" than we do on helping the customers.
