    I worked at Safeway part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ease of entry/easily apply Semi-flexible hours

    Cons

    - Overloaded with tasks - Poor break policy. Leaves employees exhausted/fatigued. Affects customer service and work efficiency. - Managers publicly belittle and berate employees - Underpaid with a low glass ceiling - Little to no benefits for part time or fulltime - Taking verbal abuse from customers and managers alike - Understaffed while being critized for not completing all tasks without going overtime. Get... ridiculed for going overtime to complete tasks. Darned if you, do darned if you don't. - Poor training (sink or swim method), this affects customer satisfaction while green horns are learning.

    Advice to Management

    Work on a business structure that incentivizes employees to stay and grow in the company. My experience there was scapegoating and intentional sabotage practices. I.e. the business model is to focus on recruitment and overwork green horns to the breaking point of employee termination or quitting. This model works because the people are dispensible, job is low skilled, and the model is a low-costed investment. Don't... need to give raises or benefits if they quit or get let go. So might as well overwork them and blame them when they don't meet the growing demands. Morale is low when this happens and employees turn on each other; increasing the already toxic environment. Staff more people even if that affects profit. This will improve customer satisfaction and will ease the task loads so standards can be met. Increase wages. This will improve employee confidence in the company and will retain experienced employees.
