    I worked at Safeway Canada (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of different locations to work at college tution rembiursemebt for certain classes. Good co workers for the most part, Employee discount at times

    Cons

    There should be a lot more positive feedback instead of negative so much. Employee uniforms are pretty non flattering lot of micro managing

    Advice to Management

    Please consider not talking down to lower level employees and be more respectful of peoples feelings and circumstances. Treatment of employees need to be better

    Deli Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edmonton, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Safeway Canada (Edmonton, AB (Canada)).

    Interview

    It was easy; I got a call, went in a day later, was hired within the week.

    I was asked a few basic questions, mostly about my availability and desire to work there.

    I asked three questions (who would I work with, what is hard about this job and what is easy, and what the liked and disliked about working at safeway) which the interviewer really liked.

    Even that day, I knew I got the job as the manager (who was really nice and not at all like my experience with the superiors in deli) kept asking about my hours and displayed training schedules.
