    I worked at Safeway full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great union wages and benefits.

    Cons

    When I left it had gotten out of control micro managed and to the point of the company losing money instead of asking veteran employees for ideas. Way too top heavy and it's nit needed. Hopefully it's changing but I worked there during the highest turnover they'd ever had and it got tough but I stayed. And stayed. And stayed. My dad and mom both got to bad medically (spanning 2 years not overlapping) and my attendance (tardies) got hard to avoid as I was the only person to help them and they were more importantat that point. I signed the attendance agreements thinking it would b more manageable. In the end ... it was the hardest year of my life but now that it's almost over it was meant to happen. I'm still sad cuz I would've retired there. So yeah try to force urself to stay if you can cuz there's not anything like it out there on the benefits scale. And that's the most important!

    Current Employee - Cashier 

    I have been working at Safeway part-time

    Pros

    Making it clear I wanted plenty of hours here got me exactly that, and the manager appreciated me for it. Helped make sure I got the days off I needed since I covered so much for others.

    Cons

    Hard, repetitive work and no benefits because technically still part time at 39.5 hours per week.
