OK pay + lazy workers + horrible management = Too Many Headaches

Department Manager (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD (US)

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

ProsThe benefits are good. There's a union, but that only benefits people who receive a lot of disciplinary actions.

ConsManagers consistently try to steal hours from departments (but maybe that's learned from corporate). As far as the bakery is concerned, you have to deal with lazy coworkers, a lot of call-outs, and work not completed. Not a team atmosphere. If you are good at your job, you are expected to pick up the slack for someone who isn't.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to interview candidates and try to actually hire people who will perform the tasks that you need performed. MANAGE your staff and SOLVE problems or at least try to help solve them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
