    I worked at Safeway full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits! Paid holiday, vacation! And since you can only get hired for part time. It is the only company I know of that gives you full benefits on only 24 hrs a week.

    Cons

    Poor communication between management. If you become a dept. Manager you will work 60 hours but only get paid for 40. Too much work and not enuf ppl. You give them 150% and they want more. It will never be enuff. Thr more you give the more they expect.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is vidal for success. Talk to your assistants even tho they are all 10 i mean in there 20s. Be a mentor guide them through instead of just throwing them out there. They hav no ppl skills. That is a trait that is not inherited it is taught! So teach them!
