Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

work with your fellow co-workers is like working with family

Cons

Management is not like they used to be, old school, stick up for your employees. My manager was in it for himself, never a compliment, noting positive, always negative. Morale at the store was VERY low.

    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!
