Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee) – Regina, SK – 10 October 2017
I worked two locations of Safeway pharmacy. One location was very chaotic, some people working, some people setting. Another one, everyone knows what means term work, and the manager knows how to work with different characters.
Working at Safeway you see all sorts of things, many positive, some not so much. Customer service is a top priority, even when dealing with unruly customers. Good management, some good coworkers, an okay place to work overall.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Prince Rupert, BC – 6 October 2017
Lots of multitasking. Deli was often understaffed when I worked there so there is a lot of work to do. If I had the choice I would work as a cashier or stock clerk instead. Same pay but less demanding.
definitely a highschooler's job, or people unlucky enough to get trapped in the loop.
Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 October 2017
management is constantly rotated for training making it impossible for managers to really know the store, laziness is rampant due to union protection, and generally not a great place to work for long periods of time. If you really need extra money, this would be an alright place to work in the meantime.
easy work, decent people most of the time
zero flexabilty, erratic schedule changes with no confirmation, very limited benefits
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 2 October 2017
Enjoyable Staff with very good scheduling, also able to work around family problems and in general needing time off. Busy and Clean very efficient in their Work and the way they treat their staff. By far one of my favourite jobs
Customer Service (Former Employee) – South Surrey, BC – 30 September 2017
Schedules are made far in advance so you do not have to worry about not having your schedule. The co-workers are very friendly and kind. There is regular staff working their shifts so you only get to work the shifts they do not work.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 29 September 2017
Safeway is a very good starter job because you don't need experience. I went in person and gave my resume and about two weeks later i got a call for an interview. Got hired on the spot. I liked about 90% of staff that was my favourite thing about the job. I hated customers because they always claimed on how their groceries were packed. Breaks were usually on time and it was a friendly environment to work.
They were pretty good with you taking sick time or booking days off. Never had a problem with that.
Unhappy customers and hated some of the supervisors
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.
