    I worked at Safeway full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work for a Fortune 50 Company
    Room for career growth
    Perfect launching pad to work for the vendor community i.e. Kraft, Clorox, Kelloggs, Del Monte, P & G, Conagra, etc...

    Excellent benefits
    401k
    Superb campus spread out through several buidlings

    Cons

    Low on the pay scale within the industry

    Merit raises happened very infrequenty even though performance objectives above target

    Bonuses are often not allocated due to non-profitability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper level executive team should look at how they want to keep their great talent. Pay them what they are worth. It's unfortunate that so many employees leave each month due to non-untilization of the curren skill set.

    Current Employee - Cashier in Philadelphia, PA (US)

    I have been working at Safeway part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am just a high school kid, and it's nice to not have a whole lot of responsibility. The managers understand that I am going to mess around.

    Cons

    Corporate is getting much tougher on its regs. I am required to do some goofy stuff, like wave people into my line and recite ordered lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please let each employee have their own style.
