I have been working at Safeway full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

decent pay for starting out, not to live off of for the rest of your life

Cons

hour cuts, more expected, less time to do it

Advice to Management

clean up on poor management. If you have a dept or store manager that has problems with EVERYONE they are the problem, not everyone else.

    I worked at Safeway part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can work where you shop.

    Cons

    Often working in a stressful environment due to high volume and not enough staff. (in the case of this location)

    Advice to Management

    Take more time and care to listen to both customers and employees. I often felt that like i was just brushed aside and it took a lot of effort just to get management's attention about something.
