Expect Disappointment

Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee)
Enumclaw, WA

ProsI 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.

ConsHowever, 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
