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

Pros

People willing to work with you for many things. If you are willing to put in the effort there are opportunities to move up within the company easily.

Cons

Union, while beneficial, can keep people stuck in lower positions. Pay is based off of your title, rather than experience and contribution to the company.

Advice to Management

Think like you were a store employee, a lot of what you are doing is not helping the store employees.

    I worked at Safeway full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefit package was very good

    Cons

    Long hours, rarely get two days off in a row. Be careful when asking for a transfer, they approved mine then when I moved they offered me stores 60 miles away from my home when there were several stores within 30 miles, I declined and went to work at a bank, best move I ever made.

    Advice to Management

    Get a heart, you get what you give in this world.

    I have been working at Safeway full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of your coworkers are nice people, and you're unlikely to be disciplined for any reason. The customers are easy to connect with.

    Cons

    The pay is low, and the work can be monotonous. If you're starting out on the bottom, you'll have to deal with a lot of bureaucracy and inefficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the people on the bottom rung what they need to keep the customers happy.
