challenging

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

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

Prosgreat 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

Consvery 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 Senior Managementwatch 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
