Worst experience of my life; don't work here!
Pros: -Coworkers are generally pretty nice and helpful. They are what makes the job bearable. -Most customers are kind people and the really friendly ones can make your day. It's nice to have people genuinely smile at you. -It's unionized. -Always hiring, even in the bad economy. They will literally take anyone. If you're in dire straits, then you can work for minimum wage and not freeze to death while you wait for even McDonalds or Walmart to give you a call. Cons: Where to begin... long rant ahead. -Training was awful. They sent me to a store 20km away from the store I was to be employed at, which was ridiculous. The trainer was a nasty sexiest woman who took pleasure in knocking people down and then kicking them while they were down there. She only critiqued women who were training (particularly overweight women) and either ignored questions or got angry when you did ask. She wanted people to jump in with only a minute or two maximum of instruction, but if people made mistakes, she chewed them out. All-in-all, it was a miserable experience to be involved in. There were times I felt like throwing my uniform in the trash and quitting in a fantastical manner and this was only the first week. It got worse from here. --You get treated much the same in your store (although your supervisor is unlikely to be as bad as the cruel egomaniacs that they have who do the training), only you're expected to do much more without ever asking for guidance. -They expect

It is a fast pace environment which for me is enjoyable.
If I'm opening up (at 5:00 am), all items that have an expiry date as of the next day (ie. today is the 5th, the expiry date on product is the 6th), are to be removed and 'distressed' (which means that they will be either thrown out or composted) and then marked with a reduced price of 50% for consumers to purchase. These reduced products are put out for half a day and then either thrown out or composted. Removing all 'expired' bakery goods and marking them with a reduced price takes approximately 2 hours. The hearth oven breads are taken out and displayed for purchase in the 'hut'. Once the reduced items have been dealt with and the 'hut' has been set up, the morning baked goods (bagels, french breads & muffins) are cooled enough to package and put out. This takes approximately half and hour to an hour. While these items are being packaged and put out, I'm also serving/assisting customers. After the morning baked goods have been taken care of, bread needs to be sliced and put out. A second worker usually starts about 8:30/9:00 am, at which time I would take my first break of 1/2 hour (this is considered my lunch break because I would punch out and then punch back in). After the lunch break, it would be packaging, slicing or assisting customers. Also would be taking cake orders or writing on cakes. Once all the packaging has been done, would assist wherever needed. If doing a closing shift (11:30 am to 8:00 pm), the main job would be slicing, packaging, and stocking bread wh

Truck Driver | Calgary, AB | Nov 5, 2015
The toxic culture was too much for me
You punch in, get your paper work and keys, get your truck, hook up to a trailer and deliver the skids to the various stores in Calgary and the surrounding area. Usually a driver will do a 2-4 trailers a night. Most of the shifts are afternoons, 4pm until 1am. The work is generally clean, most stores have power jacks and most stores have great people whom you get to know and like. The driving is generally local and there are postings for out of town and over night runs but it takes time to get those postings. Its generally 5 days on and 2 off, some get 4 on and 3 off. I found the work generally mundane and that I was under utilized. Its a pretty good gig if you don't want a challenge, to advance or work hard. The union contract pays time and a half after 8 hrs, double after 10 and double on call ins. Over time and call ins are very rare in an effort to slash expenses. The management was challenging to work with. I don't think they have much education or training, a lot of people worked up from entry level jobs and scored the opportunity by being at the right place at the right time. They are great people if they like you. However I have had the chance to work with well educated industry leaders and I feel there is a lot left to be desired in this aspect of the company. The co-workers are mainly senior citizens, close to retirement. I had the chance to meet many good people and make a few good friends too. There are some fantastic guys there and some n

Not the best for anyone who wants a happy environment.
I worked at Safeway over a yea ago, but feel a pressing urge to say something about my experience. I will never forget what I was told on my very first shift: "oh you seem really positive! That'll change, don't worry." While I was offended by this, the employee wasn't wrong. Surrounded by such a negative environment, I genuinely felt my mental health distinguishing. I felt somehow obligated to carry the heaviness of everyone else in the department, pushing for positivity and optimism throughout the workday, when no one else would. But shouldn't that be the face employees are expected to wear for customers? The people who by the product a worker sells should be greeted by pleasant people who actually would like to help them, and no one can say that that doesn't exist, because I was so frequently told that "its nice to see someone smiling here for a change." I discovered that something as little as remembering a regular customers order, or even their name can completely change their attitude. I just think that before an employee complains about the demeanor of a customer, they should first ask themselves if they are giving the customer reason to feel joy. I remember hearing a coworker say "I won't serve you until you're off your phone." to a customer that was obviously having to take an important phone call. While even I can admit that a distracted customer can be aggravating, I don't think that as employees we have the right to decide who is served, especially when we don't kn

Safeway and me
Well... I worked for Safeway for 10 long years. The first year as a lowly courtesy clerk was alright. The next 4 however slowly deteriorated from alright to unpleasant to thank god I'm moving. As a courtesy clerk I was pushing carts, bagging groceries, helping customers, sweeping, cleaning up spills, and removing graffiti from bathroom stalls with hairspray, That was an interesting learning experience as hairspray actually breaks up ink and stuff! And of course cleaning bathrooms and the lunch room, and garbage's I got paid a maximum of $13.50 up from $11.17 in those five years. The 'benefits' were only available to people working 30 hours for 13 weeks on average. I got those benefits about 5 times. The benefits themselves started out decent. I got an air miles employee card which gave me just under 4000 air miles, that is until they stopped giving air miles as a benefit. Safeway benefits in my experience are not very good. Medical is a huge pain to try to use. Dental too. And that's about it. Other than pension of course. After I moved, I ended up working for Safeway again for 4 3/4 years. A new store, new people. It was so much better.. The atmosphere in that store was positive, and friendly. The work culture was very good. Not too serious. Staff could sing, joke, laugh. It was great! Mostly. In those years I was paid more than ever! Friends were to made everywhere too. The hardest part of working for Safeway as a courtesy clerk was doing the carts. The winters were brutal
ProsIf you earn safety awards you get free lunch, Depending on the store the people can be awesome, you learn customer service which can actually make you a better person if you let it, Safeway acceptes all people into the company.

Safeway on Dawson Rd -Courtesy Clerk
I enjoyed working as a courtesy clerk at Safeway. I was kept busy throughout the day doing multiple tasks from cashier, stocking shelves, unloading pallets, display ends, price checks, bringing in carts, cleaning and helping customers find the products that they're looking for and answering questions. I struggle with anxiety on a daily basis but I decided that one day I wanted to step up and put myself out of my own comfort zone in hopes that I can improve and learn how to over come my anxiety. It took some time but I adapted well to the surroundings, I always greeted customers with a smile and tried to provide the best service that I can. I would say that working at Safeway has helped me overcome my anxiety and Iv'e became more confident in myself. The Managers, supervisors, employees and the other clerks where very friendly and made me feel welcomed. Although there is only one thing that Iv'e had difficulties with and that was bringing in the carts during winter season. I was called in almost everyday to cover other peoples shifts "which I didn't mind." I was the only female clerk on the team at the time. When the store got busy during the winter, I was the one to bring in all the carts by myself and the parking lot wasn't paved very often.

Team-like workplace, working with many different people with different skill sets. Theres much to be learned as a Safeway Deli Clerk.
A typical day at work would be, you punch in and you're already dressed in the Deli Clerk attire. You say hello to your fellow workers, wash your hands and put on your plastic gloves. Right away you serve any customers that are tending to your service and fulfill any tasks that need to be completed within your shift. Its a long, busy but productive day filled with constant work; serving, cooking, cleaning, and keeping record of everything. I learned many things at Safeway, how to manage a workplace, to be sanitary in a workplace and to really master the art of customer service. You learn how to work with other people, younger and older, and I was actually the youngest person working in the entire Safeway. I learnt how to record all of the prices, price tags, food, and sales counts and how to prepare different types of food. Service, sanitation, and team work are the 3 main subjects you deal with as a Safeway Deli clerk. Most of my co-workers were very kind, some were grumpy and they had their ups and downs like anyone else but at the end of the day you are there to work together as a team and learn to deal with each other and act like grown up adults. Without a doubt, the most difficult part of my job was memorizing hundreds of different codes for the food especially the salamis, and the salads. Also, having to wash and use, and re-wash materials got extremely repetitive and tiring but it was part of my job so I did it like anyone el

Meat Wrapper | Sherwood Park, AB | Jun 23, 2015
Fun and well-paced working environment
A typical day at work involved 2 15-minute paid breaks and a 30-minute unpaid lunch break. The beginning of my shift usually involved wrapping the meat that had not been wrapped and put out yet. At some point through out the day temperature logs would have to be taken. Constantly I would be checking how the meat shelves look, rearranging to make the products more presentable to customers. Near the end of the day, everyone else's shift is over, so it's just me. I would clean up the meat processing equipment as fast as possible, and then serve customers at the counter until 30 mins before closing. Then, I would close down the counter and store the products from the counter. One last check of the shelves and putting out any products in the backroom, and I was done. I learned that some jobs have to happen, and some jobs can wait. When it's just you and you can't put the job on someone else, and you can't work overtime, you have to decide what's important and what can wait. Management was very good in my case. My meat manager took great care in getting me lots of hours and even got me out to other stores. My store manager was out on the floor lots, and I saw him quite a few times. My co-workers were fun to work with, which always made the work easier. You had to be able to take a joke though, and all of us could give it as well as we could take it. The hardest part of the job was cleaning up, because I am a perfectionist and I always wanted everything to be as clean as

Constantly changing hours
My biggest gripe with the deli management was that they often changed the schedule without notice, and often within 2-3 days of the shift that was changing. Since they have no way to view the schedule online, they wanted me to come into work as many times as possible simply to check the schedule. Another thing is that I saw many people get fired a few days before their probation period of 3 months was up. I usually worked the night shift (3:30 - midnight), and sometimes I stayed an hour longer to get everything done. The management insisted on me clocking out on time, even if I was to work later because of unfinished things. The night shift has another perk; you are left on your own from 9:00 until midnight, meaning I often did not have a chance to take my 15 and 30 minute breaks. If you work a night shift on a day where one of the employees working before you isn't all that competent, you'll get left with all their work. The management expects everything to be done by you, no matter what, even if you have to pick up other people's slack and work an extra hour without pay. Something else I forgot to mention is that if you do not have time to take your 30 minute break (which is unpaid, so you have to clock out) they will want you to clock out, even if you are working. I found that since there were already too few people to finish all the things required, the workers would almost always sacrifice cleanliness. Despite there being signs everywhere that read "clean

Kind of a mess.
A work day in the Safeway deli is very hectic, fast paced and stressful. You have very long lists of things to be done and almost never enough people to make sure all the customers are served and all the work gets done. Before I quit the manager told everyone hours were going to be cut because sales were not high enough however all that's going to do is tank sales ever further because no one will be able to serve customers. Unless production doesn't have to be done during the day, which they will still expect it to be done. Needless to say I am very glad I got out of there when I did. Equipment also took forever to be fixed, we only had one oven for months and were still expected to cook long lists of cold product and keep the hot case full all day which was nearly impossible on busier days. We also had no thermalizer which we needed to heat up the bags of soup for the hot soup station so we had to use the oven (even when the steam function on our only working oven stopped working properly which lead to the bags melting.. which really did not sit well with me and was actually one of the last things that lead me to quit, however that's what we were told to do). Needless to say, this place is a disaster. I got all the work done every day but the conditions and equipment I was supplied with were nowhere near what I needed to do it properly. I really do hope they get the department back on track because I spent over a year there and want to see that place succeed. The best part o

Store Manager - Long Hours, Hard Work, Wasted Time
I was an outside hire that came in from another industry, so for someone who 'came up' through retail or Safeway your experience might be much different. I was sold a job with Safeway as a growth opportunity and as a classic, white collar management job. It isn't. I spent fully half of most days either a) checking customers out or b) stocking product onto the shelves. There was a lot of opportunity to lead and manage, but it's hard to get buy-in from associates that are making minimum wage, and more importantly, in a union environment, it's really hard to hold people accountable. But most importantly, it's impossible to take the time to hold people truly accountable - store operations and various random dumb tasks will consume most of the rest of your day. Also, as the Store Manager, you are the only person that 'they' at corporate or your division headquarters, trust. So you'll get a lot of dumb requirements - 'personally verify this signage is posted in the breakroom', 'tell us how many of this UPC item you have on the shelf', 'watch this video title through the satellite feed', 'conference call on these days', 'verify all new hires have completed documentation', 'make sure everyone in your facility has signed off on new policy X', 'complete this checklist for an upcoming holiday', 'make sure this list of employees has completed this computer-based training', 'complete this checklist for limiting "Shrink"', etc. There was a lot of micromanagement and knee-jerk rea

Good for consistant hours, terrible for inconsistant pace and underappreciation
A typical day at work involves unloading grocery pallets that are brought in either before or after you clock in. On bad days these can range to several hours late, which usually means its impossible to complete your task. When breaking the load you spot, stock, and face the aisles with grocery product, which is the main part of the job. If you enjoy consistent tasks everyday, this aspect is true for Night Crew, however there are complications. An additional task of Night Crew is to manage the registers for two hours, one before closing and one after opening. This part can tie up a team member from a few minutes to the full hour depending on customer density that day. This is one less person working on the load and often they often take up time traveling to and from the register. You often spot looters coming in to the store and by the company policy you have to still ring them up and can not confront them. Loads vary in size based on who ordered it. Typically the Night Crew manager makes an order during the night during specific time constraints where they are busy for the duration. One less breaking the load and stocking the shelves. Their orders have to be submitted by a specific time and its contents are typically delivered from the warehouse the next night. If the load or customers constrain them time wise their order can easily be disproportionate to what is needed. Sometimes you get a light load (400-500 items), some times your load exceeds reasonable capabilit

Applied hoping for a summer job as a Courtesy Clerk. Offered Night Clerk instead.
With my spring semester at college coming to an end I needed to find a job to work during the summer. I applied at Safeway to work as a Courtesy Clerk since I had experience from a previous job. I went in for an interview, passed my drug test and was hired on. I was offered a position as a Night Clerk instead of working as a Courtesy Clerk. I decided to give it a shot and accepted. The first few days were a bit rocky as I was getting used to working a night shift and understanding what I was doing. My training up to this point was only watching a few videos on how to handle customers and treat my workplace. The rest of my training was learned through osmosis as I would learn on the fly by constantly asking where things went and what I should be doing. I never truly felt like I had a full grasp of my job. Constant questioning would only lead to short term solutions and I would often wonder what I was to be doing after I finished my work. A typical day at my job would start when I would show up early before my shift and wait to clock in. After clocking in I would head to the rear of the store to wait for someone to show up and move the first pallet into place. After this, everyone would break down the pallet and move produce onto carts which would then be taken to the aisles the produce went to. The produce would be then taken off the cart and placed relatively near the area the stock would be on the shelf. This process would be repeated until all the pallets were offl

Enjoyed working with flowers, but the pay, benefits, scheduling, management style and job culture were awful.
Pros: Geographically desirable (close to home). Enjoyed the creative aspect of working in the floral department. Enjoyed helping customers. Busy. Decent training. Career growth possibilities. Cons: No guaranteed hours so no guaranteed benefits. If employees work less than 20 hours per week they do not qualify for benefits like health insurance, and they have no control over the hours worked. Management's main objective is to keep employee hours as low as possible, so the store was always working understaffed. Punitive, fear based culture. Management uses fear tactics to ensure compliance, i.e. Fear of being written up for the smallest infraction (like your shirttail coming out, or working over your schedule even if you are helping customers); fear of loss of benefits; fear of loss of job; constant reminders that you are being watched at all times; huge department and store penalties if an accident occurs that requires an accident report; etc. Low pay for skilled labor. Really terrible pay and virtually no benefits for part-time employees. And everyone was part-time except management. Safeway should be ashamed of the way it compensates it's hard working employees. Floral Clerks have the same job responsibilities and required skills as Floral Designers, plus cash, customer service, inventory, merchandizing, stock control, product maintenance and department maintenance responsibilities, but they are paid only slightly over minimum wage, with no guarantee

Cake Decorator | Plano, TX | Oct 22, 2015
Worst company I've ever worked for
The store management is so disconnected with the employees and departments that when production is not running properly, instead of trying to help the situation and figure out what the issue is, they just complain and tell you whats not getting done instead of giving you helpful instruction on how to go about fixing issues. There is virtually ZERO training. Everybody has their own jobs and nobody works as a team. The cake decorator is responsible for ALL pastries, cake orders, consultations, and production. the store is open for 7 days a week 6:00am to 1:00am and only one person responsible for all desserts and can only work 40 hours 5 days a week. NO OVERTIME!!!! You get in trouble for not getting all your work done but if you try to stay a little late and catch up, you get in trouble for overtime. Then they tell you that you have to take walk-in cake orders and custom orders yet never considers the extra time it takes to stop what your doing to do that or how long it takes to do custom orders when the details are up to the guest. This could completely throw off the production of the day if people are allowed to constantly come whenever they want and stop production because they aren't prepared. This is the whole reason why there are predecorated cakes available. Its one thing if you have time but 99% of the time you don't.

Ups and downs. Could be better. High workload often, despite very low pay. Need more in depth training especially if no experience.
I believe they need more in depth training of the register system as I found it somewhat confusing at times when problems arise regularly. Not too much in person training given, in my opinion. Coworkers and management are nice and hardworking, but I feel some employees and managers seem overworked and stressed a lot, and too busy to help their employees at times when necessary, or teach them more in depth. They try very hard and are usually very busy so I can’t blame them for not having much time to explain. Pay could be improved a lot considering the often fast pace and work load, when compared to other chains. Can be high stress and busy when problems come up with the register not working, or what to do not being clear. Was not shown how to use intercom much at all, expected to learn very quickly despite no experience. Would be nice to be able to pick my schedule more often (flexible scheduling was advertised at job fair). Only one fifteen minute break about every five and a half hours, I believe. Dress code more strict. Most customers are lovely. High-paced most of the time (may vary by location though). Breaks now and then, felt breaks could be a little longer considering schedule, friendly people and customers, some very long term employees (one stayed thirty years), break room is usually pretty messy and disorganized but rest of store is clean, given your own locker and there’s a fridge in the break room to store your lunch, caring and helpful employees (

It's a start, I suppose.
For as much as those around me really build up the hype of a long-term career at Safeway, I don't see much of a reason to have one as somebody who actually works here. I started this job working the night shift, which was the position that I actively sought to do, and applied for specifically. I was under the impression that I would be restocking the shelves after closing. However, I found myself doing nothing but facing products and not being allowed to stock the shelves because I wasn't going fast enough. For those who aren't really sure what I'm talking about, facing is the act of pulling the product evenly towards the front of the shelf. The goal is to make the shelves look fully stock and like a "wall" of sorts. It does have its purposes and that isn't what I am trying to complain about here. My issue more so lies in the fact that this is what I found myself doing every night and I kept getting repeated reminders that I needed to be faster. On one hand, you have my previous point of the store being closed long enough that a high-speed approach is unnecessary. On the other hand, if speed is what you seek then why not have me stock the shelves, too? Stocking shelves the facing them seems to be a much faster way of going about this, but I was told that if I couldn't face an aisle in 30 minutes I couldn't stock the shelves. As you can probably tell, I found myself being very unhappy during the night shift, so a little less than a month into my time at Safeway, I moved to th

Lazy Co-Workers, Unnapriciative Supervisors, and Terrible Hours
A Typical Day - A typical day at work began around 5 Pm, sometimes 3:30. Arriving in, I already have my apron on, and my hat set steady on my head. I wash my hands, turn, and help whichever Customer needs help. I smile, and politely greet them "Hi there, what Can I do for you?" After assisting whomever needs It I would walk into the kitchen, and gaze upon the mess that was left by the lazy Mid-Shift or Morning Crews. Usually a gargantuan mountain of trash, and an avalanche of dishes. (That is not an entirely overdramatic unfortunately.) I set about starting some dishes, before heading back to the case to assist customers and look over what needs to be cooked. If nobody is already cooking I set about doing that as quickly, and efficiently as possible. Food is not something to rush however, as a wrong move could make someone sick, so this tended to take awhile depending on what was being made. Repeat customer service, cooking, and washing dishes. Around 7 I take out the trash, and recycling as things have hopefully calmed down some. When that is done, I return to dishes and customer service. When it comes to an end at around 10-10:30 I sweep, mop, and finish cleaning the fryers. From there, I go home around 11:30. or shortly after. What did I learn - I learned that relying on others can leave you desperate, and overwhelmed. They will not always be there, or willing to do the task.

What are the working hours at Safeway?
Asked Mar 6, 2017
The store I work at in the Lower Mainland is open from 7am-11pm every day which means we have cashiers on staff from 6:45-11:15 every day. Our bakery staff and anyone wishing to work in the cash office can start as early as 5am, as do some grocery and produce positions, and we have night crew working some nights whenever the store is closed to the public.

During the summer I get tons of hours, around 75+ over the course of 2 weeks, and they are mostly 8.5 hour shifts (with a unpaid 30min lunch break), but there are times I wish I had less hours. Also as a high school student during the school year i usually get around 3 shifts a week all closing (4:15-10:15) and I'm lucky if j get one on the weekend

What would you suggest Safeway management do to prevent others from leaving?
Asked Mar 16, 2017
Listen to your staff more. They are the people dealing with the customers and know what is going on in your business.
