Can be ok, but expect to work here a LONG time before you make a decent paycheck

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

Pros

Fun people to work with, not overly serious. I was able to get 40 hours a week because my manager was a cool guy, but it's not the norm for new hires.

Cons

Doing the work of 2 people due to shortage of hours. Unable to get a raise after almost a year of doing great. People consistently call out sick because they aren't paid enough to care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees fairly instead of replacing half the staff every couple months. Demoralizing to lose friends and coworkers because they aren't on the old contract and make half as much for doing the same job.

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

    Pros

    Benefits
    Vacation
    Sick leave
    4 floating holidays
    Promote from within

    Cons

    Micro-managed a lot
    Too many bosses to report to that are not on the same page
    Think like an owner, but follow our cookie cutter way.
    Way too many audits, that management cares about results eventhough they know it doesn't benefit company or customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the department managers have more freedom on how to merchandise thier own departments. Different store areas=different types of customers, every plan will not work in every store.

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

    Pros

    Some nice co-workers/managers and customers.

    Cons

    Every week the hours change - no set schedule. Too much gossip going on. If there is a problem (union involved) it takes 3 or more months to get it looked into/solved. If they do not like you - they will do all they can to get rid of you - especially those under the old contract. Expect a lot - give little!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking so hard for little things to call people on...
