Never properly informed on it. Most part-timers are not even expected to hang around long enough to actually benefit from it anyways.
Based on store employees' conversations
It existed. I didn't do it because I was making such a small amount of money and needed every cent I had for college.
401k is great, when money needed for hardship, there very helpful.
great if you can afford to put in more for OUR future as we work harder with less hours
Best thing is that they offer this but don't explain how to use it or when you are eligible for this. The only thing I would like to see is they offer a program that allows you to figure out what you want and how long it will take you to get where u want.
Safeway uses Vangaurd. I believe Safeway employees i.e The actual store managers (not PICs or FEMs) do receive a matching contribution. Union employees; everyone else, receive pensions set up from there union trust. All safeway personnel have access to a 401k account after 'x' period of time regardless of station. I send 5% so I feel grown up, but it would be nice if they contributed anything.
They don't match on 401k but do have decent plans if you want to contribute yourself
