    The first year as a part employee your vacation time is based off of an average of how many hours you worked that year. The 2nd year you have 40 HOURS of vacation time unlike other companies that give you a full week off.

    It takes a long time to earn paid time off at Safeway, and only people that have been with the company for more than a year can earn overtime on holidays.

    You get a week's paid vacation after a full year of working at the company, two weeks after two years and four weeks after four years of employment. You are paid what you average in hours over the year which could be a good thing or bad thing.

    Worked as pharmacist at Safeway for 2 years, and vacation time was only honored on one occassion ( a 3 day weekend). I requested vacation time for my wedding and honeymoon and was denied; it was requested 15 months in advance! Management stated they couldn't find anyone to cover my shifts.
