"OK job...not a career, just a job."

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

Pros

Convenient to pick up groceries after getting off shift

Cons

No guaranteed hours. I worked 23 hours a week for my first month. I started a second job to help ends meet. We then lost two people in my department and management put me on 6 days a week at 36-38 hours a week. They wanted me to leave my second job to open up my availability. It's a good thing I didn't do it because I heard they were still hiring for the position. My co-workers in other departments said they do this all the time and that my hours would be cut as soon as they hired someone new. Suprise! Suprise! they were right on. Three weeks later my hours were dropped down to 23 again. It's a good thing I didnt leave my second job, I would have been up a creek without a paddle.

    Pros

    Moving forward company that could do great things if they would take a harder look at certain members of the management in Pleasanton.

    Cons

    Certain members of management need to be 360 reviewed by their employees. There are a lot of inappropriate relationships that do not lend to these members being appropriately managed.
