Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager  in  Burns, OR (US)
Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Burns, OR (US)

Pros

great advancement opportunities, potential to make 6 figures with a bonus as a manager, excellent benefits if you work for a non union store, union stores do not offer as much and the whole benefit package is different

Cons

very stressful, high demands, very "corporate" and all about policy, no grey, all black or white, they say that they are family oriented but when you are salary as a manager or assistant it seems like you can't be sick and your always on call, you cant even shop in the store on your own time without being asked tons of questions so you pretty much have to shop else where

Advice to ManagementAdvice

watch everything you do and follow policy to the tee! Safeway is big on policy which is a good thing but sometimes things are grey, not always black or white but sometimes policy is set aside which can be a bad thing, not always as consistant when it comes to some policies like WIC violations

    Former Employee - Courtesy Clerk in Milpitas, CA (US)

    Pros

    The work was relatively easy and you weren't in charge of others. There is always something to do and it provides a great way to exercise because it is labor intense.

    Cons

    The job was hard work, especially placing the go back items on the shelves and retrieving the carts. Lines are long sometimes and customers will complain because of the wait. Taking out the trash can get very messy at times.
