I have been working at Safeway part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Stable job. Depending on your manager and what you do, your schedule can be very flexible. I worked in nearly every department for Safeway and because I was so valuable, I was given nearly every day I requested.
Good benefits because it's union.

Cons

You are typically required to work weekends and most holidays. Schedules are rarely consistent. The union contracts.

    I have been working at Safeway part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some nice co-workers/managers and customers.

    Cons

    Every week the hours change - no set schedule. Too much gossip going on. If there is a problem (union involved) it takes 3 or more months to get it looked into/solved. If they do not like you - they will do all they can to get rid of you - especially those under the old contract. Expect a lot - give little!

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking so hard for little things to call people on...

    "Can be ok, but expect to work here a LONG time before you make a decent paycheck"

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

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, not overly serious. I was able to get 40 hours a week because my manager was a cool guy, but it's not the norm for new hires.

    Cons

    Doing the work of 2 people due to shortage of hours. Unable to get a raise after almost a year of doing great. People consistently call out sick because they aren't paid enough to care.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees fairly instead of replacing half the staff every couple months. Demoralizing to lose friends and coworkers because they aren't on the old contract and make half as much for doing the same job.
