I worked at Safeway full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People you work with, as long as you are on a good foot with them as well as customers that you get to know over the duration of the employment. Flexible schedule, good pay when you work yourself up through the company.

Cons

Uniform standards to harsh for the average employee. High Turnover. Employee inexperience can make the position extremely hard.

Advice to Management

- listen to the people below you, most of the time they are ones who see what is really going on (lots of essential people running the stores, which aren't Managers ...)
- brunt force of the work is being done by the die-hards, treat them well!
Give them the gainshare back!

    Advice to Management

    Managers are snakes, will try to get you fired for any little violation in order to save money & get their bonus. My advice is treat your employees better.
