Pros

Great employees and management. I am a college student and they are very flexible with hours.

Cons

The salary is based on the hours you have in due to the Union. The harder you work doesn't guarantee you a raise. There is also a salary cap so you can only go so high.

    Pros

    Very friendly employees, Safeway wants to have excellent customer service so the employees are typically great people. Easy to start friendly conversation with employees and managers. Great place to get a lot of customer service skills. Easy to open up to talk to people.

    Cons

    You have to spend several years to start making a decent salary. You'll get trained to work in other departments but won't actually get a promotion. So you may start as a Courtesy Clerk, get trained for checking, but because you never got promoted, you won't accumulate raises. You'll end up feeling like you're working really hard for something, but its false hope. Must be dedicated to moving into management to make it worth staying for several years.
