Cashier (Former Employee) – Canmore, AB – 27 November 2013
I worked at the Safeway in Canmore, Alberta.
This Safeway very very busy and although i was hired as part time i worked 40 -50 hours per week. I love working with the public and really enjoyed working at this Safeway. The managers and my co-workers were friendly and helpful and made working there very enjoyable.
Cashier, Bakery and Floral Assistant (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 19 July 2017
Safeway was a fine job, not something I overly enjoyed but not something I strongly disliked. The hours were not great, but if you work there long enough they get better. Would recommend if looking for part-time work.

But Safeway did not pay very well for sevice clerks and to advanced to become a cashier was not easy thing to do.asa sevice clerk I could get 40 hours but a cashier I could only get 20hours and I would of lost all my benifits .so I stayed a sevice clerk .after a long while l left the job so could get a job as a cashier.
The People were reeally nice to work with (except for the asst. managers)
Cashier (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 16 July 2017
A real good place to work in when I was there but it was short lived for all the wrong reasons and the idiotic behaviour of some "coworkers".The People were reeally nice to work with (except for the asst. managers)
My typical days were packaging medications for customers of our auto fill service. We would often take phone calls to answer questions or look into patients files for medications that needed refills and send faxes to doctors. I would take prescriptions from customers and fill them to their specifications for purposes of billing. I would also package bubble packs for customers that needed help with their individual time needs for multiple medications. I learned a lot for time management skills, customer service and cashiers work.
sometimes we would get free lunches from the Deli
Irrate customers in need of meds but did not look after their affairs properly.
General Clerk (Current Employee) – Prince Rupert, BC – 4 July 2017
The new collective agreement has horrible wages. After 2 years of full time hours, I was only making $12.20 an hour. It's an industry where customers have no respect for workers, and believe if they throw a temper tantrum, they will receive either free product or a gift certificate. This is based on over 25 years in this Industry. The old contract at least had a living wage.
Produce Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 4 July 2017
Overall, my time at safeway was honestly awful. You work a full 8 hour shift, but it feels more like 12 or 14. They make you pay for your own lunch and their is no dicount. You get paid minimum wage to do what was quite honestly the worst job I've ever had.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 4 July 2017
The workplace all kind of people. It is a very diverse workplace mixed elderly and youth. It provides experience for the next workplace that anyone wants to work at. Very friendly staff and management.
