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.

    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.
