Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Great philanthropy and people are very friendly. Products are great and stores are beautiful.

Cons

Very old technology and old school management style. Trust and Fairness is an issue.

Advice to Management

Need to give employees the loyalty that you ask employees to give.

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

    Pros

    Great experience for customer service and learning to work in a fast paced atmosphere. This job will teach you flexibility, managing time, and learning quickly. There are perks like flexible hours, making friends with customers and co-workers, and you are valued and listened to as an employee.

    Cons

    For what you're making, at least as a courtesy clerk, you do far too much work. High stress, lots to do in a small amount of time. This depends largely on manager. You are also required to join their Union and they take out union dues from every paycheck.
