    I worked at Safeway full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You meet so many people , and the longer your there the more you connect with your customers. Best part of my job was my customers!!

    Cons

    Well unless you like to kiss butt and do the jobs of 5 people and still get told your not doing enough. I held two Management positions: Head Clerk and GM Manager. No communication between any management and to talk to anyone above store level managers is impossible because you will never be "good" enough to talk to them.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to stand behind your Management people instead of firing them for things that are meaningless to this Corparation. Either that or make sure your "Policies and Procedures" are the same in every store you own.

    I worked at Safeway part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    After 2-3 years, you start getting seniority and do not have to work the closing shifts. If you are in a store with a high turnover, you may even be lucky to choose a few of your shifts.

    Cons

    Management absolutely does not care about you. To them, you are just a number and they will treat you how ever they deem necessary to achieve results. I understand a company needs to be profitable, but not at the expense of a horrible morale. The policies are so meaningless seing as half the people follow them and the other half don't. The pay sucks, seeing as it took me seven years to only get $11.50 an hour. You top out at $12 and change and after that you are done moving up..

    Advice to Management

    Treat your cashiers with respect. Front End is supposedly the most important area of the store because it leaves a lasting impression? Prove that it means something by being kind to your front end.
