-Typical day at work is always busy -I've learned to be independent and how to solve conflict problems - Management are great and we always resolve the problems that we are having. - Our workplace culture is nice, we teach our employees professionalism to avoid mistakes engaging to customer. - The hardest part of the job is to take off most of the stuff on the floor when floor waxers are coming in. - The most enjoyable part of the job is i can supervised the employees and to help them when they are having problem.
Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 31 October 2017
Safeway isn't what it was. Salary min wage and wage bumps at very small over long periodic intervals. Management is not really your friend in this union environment and the union can't really do much unless there is a clear case of discrimination of sorts. Even contacting the union, management will lower your hours or threaten to do so. Safeway being a competition with more and more supermarkets, it is more cut-throat than ever. I can't recommend Safeway as a career path in good conscience.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 October 2017
Worked here for a very short time due to the fact that I injured myself on the job. The manager didn't really like me and was writing me up every other week for silly things that had nothing to do with my performance as an employee. When I got hurt using the meat slicer, the manager refused to fill out the worker's comp form honestly and claimed that I was injured at home. I left the position when I realized that I was never going to move up the ranks or payscale here.
Fun environment, good supervisor, great staff and customers
Poor management from the higher ups, no opportunity for advancement
Cashier (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 24 October 2017
get there and wait for customers I learned how to use the cash register like a pro The hardest part of the job was showing that I could do the job. Ihardest part of the job was trying to please the supervisor as well as the customers. I went to work every schedule. Most enjoyable part wouldve been bagging. The people loved how I did it.

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
