The workers in Safeway are amazing, its the reason why other eployees love comming to work. Its the way we interact with each other is the way we talk to customer. Especially the employees in the deli hard working people, also funny, caring, helpful, ect.

Bakery Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 September 2017
They don't train their employees properly. They expected me to do the work of three different people. I was promised a promotion that was never given. The hours were not good and I only got full time hours when their were on holidays. No benefits. I was treated poorly and still in one year didn't miss a shift. I had no choice for my own mental health too leave there.
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 11 September 2017
Horrible experience! Worst job ever! Slaved away...over worked and under appreciated big time! Almost everyone else who worked around me seemed depressed because they are stuck in that job. Old equipment shoots bread crumbs out in my face, no utensils to scoop berry filler in to donuts, no utensils to move hot deep fried donuts from pan to pan. I doubt they would pass a health inspection..all the things going on there. Ridiculous! I got injured and they refused to acknowledge it and help me out with payment and physio costs. It was a complete disaster!
Produce Clerk (Part-time) (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 5 September 2017
I worked in the produce department, so experiences may vary. I enjoyed the people I worked with, made the days go smoothly and we were very productive. Just my main gripe with the place is the pay, there is no performance bonus or any significant pay bumps. In the union booklet, available publicly, you get a raise every 520 hours of work.... a 10 cent raise. I calculated if you worked FT 40 hours a week it would take close to 3 months to get the 10 cent raise, so it would take years to earn any liveable income, unless you live with your parents with no rent or something. Because of this I honestly had to find other work as I couldn't make enough to pay rent and bills working 40 hours almost every week.
Just know going into this job, you get no bump from previous experience, everyone starts the same.
This turned into a rant, sorry about that... It just really irritates me.
Checker (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 1 September 2017
A typical day at work depending on the day would consist of greeting customers, cleaning the work area and dealing with transactions. Workplace culture is always friendly, and the most enjoyable part of the job would be the interesting types of people I'd meet on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job is remembering all of the codes but with time and practice, it became second nature.

Cashier/payroll/scheduler (Current Employee) – Vernon, BC – 28 August 2017
Good place to work, great coworkers. Unfortunatly low pay and minimal chance of advancement. I have worked there 4 years and have not advanced much the people who have been there 20 plus years have more seniority
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Dawson Creek, BC – 28 August 2017
I didn't work there long and other than management, People were pretty friendly. I know that management has a lot on their plate and it can be stressful at times, so they weren't that horrible. just not as friendly as everyone else was
no real training, I was just told what to do and expected to know how.
