    Pros

    The short time I worked for Safeway, it was one of the best companies I worked at. They gave you all the tools and materials you needed to do your job.

    Cons

    Need to invest more money into their people and lose the union. The union is only hurting the employees in the pockets.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, I loved working there.
