I have been working at Safeway

Pros

I've worked foe Safeway for 30 years. The pay is decent and the benefits are quite good. My co-workers are great. I get plenty of vacation and getting certain days off is usually very easy.

Cons

Constantly barraged with soliciting charitable donations. This irritates many customers. Also, the company's new "customer service" policies are designed to force employees to drive sales rather than be courteous and helpful to the customers. Job recognition or positive feedback of any kind is non-existant. Rather, our jobs are threatened if we are not perfect on secret shopper reports.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide ANY positive feedback!! Stop forcing us to hard-sell ad items to customers. Allow us to be courteous and friendly, and helpful to the people. We've got to stop losing good, friendly, popular employees because some secret shopper says we missed on some vaguely worded attribute.

    Pros

    Company values its employees. Treats them well. Tries to help each employee reach their potential

    Cons

    Worked 6 days a week.. Always got called in on days off. This was due to retail and sick calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more informative to employees at grocery stores about opportunities at corporate or regional offies. Lose a lot of employees after they graduate and go to other companies.
