    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Pharmacy Technician in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Safeway full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay and good benefits

    Cons

    Short staffing, no lunch breaks for pharmacists in a 12 hour day, very poor management - when push comes to shove they couldn’t care less about you. You’re just a body to them.

    Advice to Management

    Give pharmacists lunch breaks. Treat them like human beings not animals. Same goes for the technicians. Don’t pressure them on the performance of the pharmacy.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Safeway full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with, customers are amazing, good benefits, pay is good, team work

    Cons

    not very accommodating for family life, lots of new obstacles now that Albertsons has became part of company, long days, dept mgrs have no say in who is hired for dept.

    Advice to Management

    There is a high employee turnover. Deli is a very challenging dept and sometimes I’ve had up to 5 people call in during day with nobody to cover but Mgr. Makes for a long day, upper mgmt needs to work in deli to understand the daily demands for dept so they know how hard it is to complete daily requirements needed for dept.
