    Pros

    Great, fast paced, easy to get ahead as long as you're smart and motivated, great pay.

    Cons

    my first store was a union one, very low pay, and the union took dues and offered awful health care. I'm at a non union store now, great pay, and the health care is great.

    Advice to Management

    get rid f the union, fire the slow, lazy, awful workers.

    Pros

    I had a great manager so it was better than average

    Cons

    For the work I did, I did not deserve minimum wage. I worked extremely hard and took pride in my work but I never was able to move up or get a wage. Everyone looks down on courtesy clerks too. I worked the hardest and always had a smile on my face yet there was no where to go. I felt trapped and under paid for the work I did.

    Advice to Management

    Big on safety and it does show. I had a great manager, some coworkers did not.. so the experience people have had with Safeway depended on their manager and the culture THEY created.
