      Pros

      Good co-workers, fair pay.

      Cons

      Almost everything. I'm part-time but get full hours. I dont get paid vacation like the actual full timers do. I do grocery produce and occasionally floral . I've been full time hours for almost 2 years now. The management is not great. If you're not in the "in" crowd your treated badly. Ever since sobeys took over its only gotten worse. No one ever says thank-you, good job, looks great, ect...

      Pros

      Good pay for part time, everyone was really helpful and friendly, and the hours were good too

      Cons

      I was promised a job in a different department as soon as a position opened, and they gave it to other people three times within a few months, and cashier jobs aren’t good for people who need to be moving around

      Great for starter jobs, bad pay

      Pros

      It's easy to get a position at Safeway, and they are relatively flexible with your schedule. You get very good health benefits even in part-time positions.

      Cons

      They keep you part-time to keep their costs down, they cut your hours without informing you when they hire students for the summer months.

      Cashier, grocery clerk

      May 1, 2018 - Cashier/Grocery Clerk in Edmonton, AB

      Pros

      Unionized, pay increases every 500 hours, good benifits for part timers through the union, benifits for full time through the company. Part time employees get vacation pay at the end of the year. Full timers vacation is payed when you take holidays.

      Cons

      There is no good way to say this but as soon as Sobeys bought Safeway they have become a uncaring company. Expect to work every weekend and hard. Very little hours given to new hires. They promise hours but within weeks of being hired on they brop those hours down. They expect you to treat them as your first priority, but don't give enough hours to live on. Less staff than they should have on the floor. Management lie and tell you they care but really don't. Lack of training, a few hours on the computer then down to the wolves. Customers are allowed to miss treat staff, as managment will not side with employees they would rather sell that loaf of bread instead of kicking the rude customer out. They give you power to make decisions, then take it away, then give it back. They don't follow their own policies, but expect employees too. The vacation pay at the end of the year is added on to your regular check so expect large taxes off of it. Exact same pay whether your a courtesy clerk or meat cutter. They use to pay for the position your in, now every one gets the same. Starting wage is minimum yet you pay union dues. They use to have different pay scales for the different positions but no longer. It's minimum.
