I have been working at Safeway part-time (less than a year)

Pros

I have been working at Safeway for 3 months, what I like about working here is that your fellow courtesy clerks are nice and friendly and somewhat supportive. Working here gives you 10% off employee discount and S.C.E.A perks (discount admission fees of events) benefits.

Cons

However, working as a courtesy clerk can be very stressful and overwhelming. Expect your wage to be 10 cents above minimum wage, pushing in heavy carts from parking lot in all COLD, HOT and RAINY weather conditions for an hour. Also expect to be cleaning bathrooms. The management team I found is not really all that supportive and also found them to be very micro-managing even when you are trying your hardest to do the tasks well.

    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.
