Pros

There really is no good reason to work in the store, but as a delivery driver, the money is decent, and you're on your own which is nice. Most of the employees are pretty cool too.

Cons

You have to deal with people in the store sometime. Although most are cool, there are a few that like to make life difficult, but I guess that's everywhere.

Also, no upward movement unless you want to be a store manager which requires 40+ hrs which can be tough if you have a family.

Advice to Management

You should allow the employees to give feedback on management in the store. Hold them accountable. The managers should be subject to a review, just so you know what really goes on.

    Pros

    Working at a bigger company like Safeway definitely gives you more freedom to move around and experience other areas of interest, whereas you might not be able to do so in a smaller company.

    Cons

    There was a lot of politics in the department that I worked for which was unprofessional and made it a difficult environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    The role of upper management is to lead by example and coach their employees. I felt that some managers at Safeway had very poor leadership skills.

    always cutting employees hours, can work a variety of shifts in a single week, takes long time to become a journeyman and get pay raises. and the few that do get hours have been there forever. then they want to send you home early to cut hours.

    Advice to Management

    treat employees better finacially billion dollar corperation paying the people that make that money for them very little
