I have been working at Safeway part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great employees and management. I am a college student and they are very flexible with hours.

Cons

The salary is based on the hours you have in due to the Union. The harder you work doesn't guarantee you a raise. There is also a salary cap so you can only go so high.

Advice to Management

Show positions available for employees looking to move up.

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

    Pros

    Actually the Union. They made sure we weren't overworked, which is a plus in the pharmacy. the training program was really good. Automatic raises every year regardless of performance.Good benefits after a year.

    Cons

    My immediate pharmacists were great, but dealing with upper management was terrible. They made policies in the office without thinking about us in the trenches. They are doing all this remodeling for the wellness rooms,and we were forced to work during construction in our pharmacy. Why they couldn't do it at night when we were closed, I don't know. The customers sure weren't happy. I sure didn't like the noise and breathing in all the dust. They would cut our hours every summer, but heap on more responsibilities and requirements.

    Advice to Management

    The people in the office need to work in the pharmacies for a week and then make your policies!
