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

    Pros

    Decent environment, helpful coworkers, high mobility of employment, Uniforms were free (in my case), food to eat during breaktime is conveniently right there.

    Cons

    The wages are a notch above minimum...before you factor in union dues. Union dues are ridiculous and poorly allocated, management treats workers as numbers. They have draconian work schedules, workers are corrupt at every level.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the corruption of Safeway Employees, care more about the workers, loosen the work schedules, and either improve your arrangements with UFCW or ditch them altogether.

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

    Pros

    The corporate culture is formal yet it is easy to assimilate. Facilities are very nice, and the equipment provided is up to date and high quality. The employees are friendly and will go out of their way to help.

    Cons

    It appears that some type of a matrix is used to determine promotion based on gender and race attributes. There are target percentages set as goals for the business units. Depending on where you fall on this matrix, it could be difficult to get a promotion.

    Cost of living raises don't keep pace with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    There are so many good ideas bubbling up from the ground level people that seem to be lost on the way up.
