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

    Pros

    People (Shoppers) are fun to Interact With, Fried Chicken is good.

    Cons

    Monotonous, Repetitive & Brainless Work Makes 8 Hours Drag On like 10. High Turnover means the Uneducated Sloths who have worked there for 10 years treat you like crap because they know you won't be there long and are jealous they are stuck there.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better gig so you're not so angry all the time (They hate it there too.)
