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

    Pros

    Stable paycheck every week, decent benifits, although becoming very expensive for the employee. If you like to travel, this one is for you. Safeway does present the opportunity to move laterally or up if you are qualified.

    Cons

    Very poor work life balance. Senior management chooses not to see the difficulties created for thier employees due to the SM's decision making. Upper management seems to generally ignore suggestions form rank and file employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start an employee sharing incentive award. Not employee owned, but certainly employee driven results. With out that, there is, and will continue to be, a complete disconnect with back stage workings.Get back to basics, customer service starts with the genuine care for the customer, after all they are the ones signing the pay checks. Quit micromanaging the stores, the str. managers know better than corporate what the local customer wants at any give time. One size does not fit all!

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and ability to move within different departments of the store.

    Cons

    Hours can either be too much or too little. Schedule is very random. One day you're opening, the next you close. Takes a while to get a raise. Secret shoppers are annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to check up on the department managers. Some of them let the power go way in to their heads that they become lazy and sit down and get fat doing so.
