I have been working at Safeway full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Regional management is excellent and supportive. You have the freedom to manage your department with your own values, ideas, and initiatives.

Cons

There is not enough labor to support delivering good results on even our core business. Technology is way behind the times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate vision and goals to at least department managers frequently. We cannot lead our employees without knowing where the company is wanting to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
