    I have been working at Safeway part-time

    Pros

    It is a union job, so your rights are protected. i.e.. Getting breaks, getting paid for "all of your hours," treated with respect etc.

    Cons

    The coorporate policies are disconnected from reality. For example, you need to fill out safety observations where you comment on another employee working safely. It has become something that management just wants you to get done so they can fill a quota. They don't care if you pretend that you really observed something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to spend more time in stores rather than just coming up with new policies. It would be nice if the Union came by more often. We do pay them $100 a month.

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

    Pros

    used to be stability! (people have to eat). its all about dividends to stockholders and bonuses to upper level management. you have to fight to get paid time off and if you get sick you can and will be reduced to part time status.

    Cons

    its all about dividends to stockholders and bonuses to upper level management. you have to fight to get paid time off and if you get sick you can and will be reduced to part time status. if I didnt have 20 yrs with them I would leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    re-structure and get rid of the dead weight holding this company back and staff the stores like competitors do. secret shoppers are the biggest inside joke in denver div. 2nd place goes to the district managers. there are some very good store managers.
