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

    Pros

    Family like environment
    High quality products
    Health Insurance at PT
    Paid vacation

    Cons

    Having to belong to a union, and still getting paid min. wage (four years at min. wage).
    Employees are undervalued and looked over for promotions in favor of younger inexperienced employees.
    With new store, manager has no time for employees. Very curt.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate to your employees. I understand you have a lot of weight on your shoulders with the store being new and expensive, but treating us like the menial minimum wage workers we are just demoralizes us. (and we work our butts off). Get rid of the union Safeway!

    I have been working at Safeway part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    not too many. the cons really outweigh any possible pros and make the environment horrible anyway.

    Cons

    disrespectful, treat employees like dirt, bad pay with little raises. I had to fight to get a raise and they made me lose all my raises when I went inactive since they weren't accommodating my college schedule

    Advice to Management

    raise wages, treat employees with respect
