Stocking Clerk/Merchandiser (Former Employee), winnipegJuly 7, 2014
Pros: interaction with co workers at launch

The Management in safeway is good. they are courteous and friendly to their staff and – more... I liked working there.

The hardest part of the job is the high stocking and the enjoyable part of the job is the people – less

Easy work, enjoyable
Helper (Former Employee), Burnaby, BCJuly 5, 2014
Cons: 9 hour night or days
A night at work involved easy lifting, placing stock of shelves. easy problem solving.
I learned to work at a fast competitive pace to keep up with other companies in the supermarket industries.
Management was great, kind and understanding, they would help you if you needed help or questions answered.
co-workers were fun to work with but you don't have – more... time to see them much as your at work and at a fast general pace.
The hard part about the job is the its repetitive, same thing every night.
the most enjoyable thing about this job was that your free to work at your own pace and don't have anyone slowing you down. everyone is friendly. I liked helping others if they needed help! some co-workers have disabilities... – less

Colleagues & cashiers were fun to work with.
Courtsey clerk (Former Employee), Airdrie, ABJune 25, 2014
Pros: christmas parties each year
Cons: long hours & heavy lifting
A typical day for me at Safeway would consist of bagging groceries cleaning duties, assisting costumer with there grocery bags, & collecting shopping carts and returning them to the store.

I enjoyed working with most of the cashiers at Safeway. they were fun & easy to work with.

The hardest part of the job was the heavy lifting & returning carts, – more... especially at winter.

Again the best part of the job was associating with the costumers – less

Safeway...
Bakery Clerk (Current Employee), Steamboat Springs, COJune 16, 2014
Safeway is a great place to work. The pay here is good for the location. I would not want to turn it into a career though. I am only working here while in search of a real career. The managers are very relaxed and easy going. It is definitely an interesting group of people to be surrounded by on a daily basis. The most difficult part of my job is working – more... under pressure. There is always a million things to accomplish and not enough time which make time management and efficiency very important skills in the job. – less

Great job for experience
Gas Bar Attendant (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJune 13, 2014
Pros: location, hours, friendly co-workers, music
Cons: wage, only start off as part time, let on your own for breaks
Job hours were really reliable. You always had someone on hand to ask for help. It can be a fast paced environment at moments, and then be silent for the rest of the shift. Great experience if you want to remain in the convenient store industry for awhile. I learned the different types of cigarettes and tobacco. I also learned lottery sales as well.

Cashier (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCJune 7, 2014
Pros: being praised for good work
Cons: irregular shifts
It made me feel safe to know that Safeway was a union job, so if anything happened such as injury, they would help me out as much as possible. The best part of the job was being able to interact with different customers every day. You get to meet a lot of new people, and get to know a lot of regular customers. The hard part was being on call, and not – more... having very regular shifts. Most of the time I wouldnt have any shifts scheduled, but would get a call every morning being asked to come in to work. – less

Assist customers make thier purchases with a smile. The staff and customers are friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately since I have moved, the travel distance and the short shifts make it impossible to maintain a career there.

Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMay 29, 2014
Pros: reasonable hours
Cons: can't think of any
Going around the store and giving co-workers my help whenever they needed it.

I learned how to do a variety of jobs, What it's like working with co- workers and how to deal with customers.

Management would tell me what I needed to do for that day and send me on my way. They were patient and helpful and they liked my work.

Co-workers were a lot a – more... like Management. I did what ever they asked me to and I tried to be as helpful as possible. They would give me constructive criticism and thank me for doing a good job.

The hardest part for me was keeping up with facing shelves I would do a good job I was just slow.

The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got to try a lot of new things. Rather then doing the same thing all day every day. – less

Day as a Coffee Bar Server.
Coffee Bar Server (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMay 5, 2014
My typical shift would start mid-afternoon. I would serve customers for around an hour, then I would restock the coffee bar. I would then clean the coffee bar, then tale a dinner break, then serve customers until closing. The hardest part of my job was dealing with a late night rush. Typically I am preparing for closing, when many people would show – more... up at once. I then had to work quickly to serve them all, then would need to get back to closing. The best part were the people I worked with. If where I work has good people working as well, I would enjoy it. – less
