This was ok as a temporary job or could be better as someone's second job. Fast paced and heavy traffic.

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

Pros

I liked that I belonged to a union, that is always nice. And also I enjoyed the steady raises and teamwork.

Cons

Understaffing would be difficult to work under especially when we were busy. And seniority ranking by time instead of productivity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be open to new ideas.

    I worked at Safeway part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They do actually have decent benefits once you work there long enough,that is really about it

    Cons

    Nobody cares about you, you are left to fend for yourself out there. The only way to get ahead is if you kiss a lot of behind,and I mean a LOT of behind. There is no such thing as having your hard work pay off over there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop continuing to make this industry into the joke that it is. It is time for new blood to come in and save not only this company but this entire industry. Take a look at what Trader Joe's,Nugget Markets and Whole Foods are doing and take a page or two from their playbook. They are obviously doing something right if they are keeping the people who work for them happy. It is about time that the people who work for you could feel the same way,too,instead of having employees looking to escape every chance they get. They deserve better.
