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

Pros

If you are looking for a part time job that does not have consistent hours then this the job for you.

Cons

Not have enough hours to pay for my bills after working for them for 19 years

Advice to Management

It is about who you know not so much about what you know anymore. If you are a lady you have more chances over a guy.

    I have been working at Safeway full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good beginning job for someone entering the work force. If you stay long enough, at least two years, you are eligible for insurance coverage.

    Cons

    Very few employees receive full time hours; makes it difficult to bank enough hours for benefits. The management (Corporate Level and Store Manager) harass employees constantly--treating them like they are idiots. Expected to perform 8 hours of work in 6 hours or less. Union regs make it hard to get rid of bad employees.

    Advice to Management

    A kind word goes a long way--constantly harassing employees is bad for morale--most people leave because of the crappy treatment.
