    I worked at Safeway part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get automatic raises after certain periods of time,

    Cons

    Managers micro manage, I always had scheduling issues and they were not understanding of the fact I was still in school at all, one manager in particular only ever wanted me to work on carts so I would be stuck with 8 hour shifts in the middle of winter outside constantly except for my 15 minute break

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work better with employees about scheduling
