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

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

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

    Staff Pharmacist (Former Employee)

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

    Pros: Good pay, with good sign-on bonus when I started. Support staff was friendly and helpful for the most part. I was disabled by… Cons: I came to the pharmacy at a very stressful time, the pharmacist-in-charge was on medical leave and I took over those duties as well as… Advice to Senior Management: It is ridiculous to add to the pharmacists' burdens by advertising walk-in immunizations instead of letting the pharmacy set up appointments for that service. … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
