    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 have been working at Safeway part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Weekly paychecks. Lots of really nice people at store level.

    Cons

    Corporate mentality which translates to: there are 20 people out there waiting to take your job.
    Lots of lip service about 'the heart of Safeway' but very little action.
    Part time never turns into full time.
    Health insurance expensive and not very good coverage on prescriptions. Have to use Safeway pharmacies.

    Advice to Management

    As if it would do any good.
