I have been working at Safeway Canada full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They encourage you to move up within the company and are very flexible in terms of letting you leave early on long weekends or when the weather is bad.

Cons

Longer hours, older computer systems, older real estate. I think the longer than normal hours are maybe a deterrent to people volunteering to work more hours

Advice to Management

I think by making longer hours a requirement, people are less likely to donate their own time.

    I worked at Safeway Canada full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I met some great people (employees & customers) while working there!

    Cons

    Safeway is only concerned about profits! There is absolutely no regard for employees or their well-being! Employees are worked VERY hard for VERY little pay!

    Advice to Management

    Store-level employees are the people making the company money! They ARE an asset, NOT just an expense! Perhaps Safeway should reduce some expense at middle to upper management?!?! Cutting the hours of a $10.00 per hour employee over those earning 6 figures is ridiculous!
