    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Safeway full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The cashiers and other people down the totem pole are nice.

    Cons

    Beyond toxic management. As said in the title, the managers have a habit of swearing and hollering at employees with little provocation. One in particular belongs in a nuthouse and is not qualified to lead anyone, as all he ever does is speak horribly to those that he is free to abusive. It's a shame that we can't record him in action because it would be viral. My mother is now suffering from heart problems from the stress of the continued harassment. She can't sleep at night and goes to work in fear. When she submitted her rare sick days, after years of working there without a SINGLE day off, the management simply docked her pay as if she didn't submit anything. She can't afford a lawyer in this area. Needless to say, any vacation requests didn't get the same treatment. They demanded a sick note for any vacation day (singular) she did take. We tried taking it up the corporate ladder and they bounced it back to us.

    Advice to Management

    Fire current management, promote current cashiers, and next time your employees take it up with HR, you handle the problem. You don't tell them to hash it out with their psycho boss who is the problem.
