    Pros

    Working at Safeway was by far the best place I have worked in my 11+ years in the industry. The ability to think outside the box and make a positive change.

    Cons

    As with any other job, there is always red tape to cross when trying to get initiatives implemented, but the support was there to try and get as far as possible to make improvements.

  2. Until the merger, job was decent, now it is not very good.

    Pros

    Decent wages, decent work environment, used to have good job security until merger.

    Cons

    Benefits have gone down hill steadily over the past 5-10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Probably too late as merger has affected anyone with long term goals, but hold on to your knowledge base.

  8. Helpful (1)

    I worked at Safeway

    Pros

    Family atmosphere including the customers. Enjoyed going to work. Team effort and trained beyond compare. I always felt cared for by my management.

    Cons

    Too many changes over the years and miss how it used to be about the public not the money and company. Quit being so greedy and your stores won't fail.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and customers! Treat them with respect and your company will thrive.

    Pros

    Pay is great for a P.I.C. position; looks good on a resume so you can leave, great way to get management experience to transfer into a true management position. if you don't mind working in the middle of the night and getting yelled at all day then it's a really good gig.

    Cons

    Hours are horrible, corporate doesn't know what they want, huge lack of communication within company, never know how many P.I.C. shifts I will get, pay is hugely different depending on what job I'm doing that day.

    Advice to Management

    stop acting like you're in high school stop acting like you're in high school stop acting like you're in high school
