Always short staffed, schedules keep changing without any notice, you need to check schedule daily. Too much micro managing . Manager needs to trust her employees more it’s ridiculous that the garbage is locked up and employees have to call management to come and unlock the garbage for it to be placed in compactor Employees not appreciated.
Pros
Working with good people
Cons
Not enough staff

I have worked at the St. Albert Inglewood Safeway for a few years now and have noticed heavy oppressive and discriminatory behaviors from some of the managers. They keep you in one place all shift, every shift, with no opportunity for advancement. When I brought an issue up to the branch manager, she dismissed me with a raised voice and wouldn’t hear my story. I feel unhappy and repressed at the Safeway
Pros
Some coworkers are pretty cool to work with, floor managers are usually willing to work with you on an issue
Cons
Rudeness and unprofessionalism by managers and oppression

Safeway has been a really nice store where I have been working for almost an year now. My manager, supervisor and all my colleagues are of friendly nature. They understand me very well and appreciate me for my work which is obviously always nice to hear. While working at Safeway I have learned team work, leadership, time management kind of qualities. I never feel tired or bored while working in the store.

Tbf, one manager was good but the rest were meh. You come in, you work, you leave. There wasn't anything other than that. I met a lot of good customers and co-workers who made the experience better. You really get to face all types of personalities. As for the discount part, I don't understand why they don't give workers a 10% discount from the store like so many other stores do.

Good for a stepping stone but that is about all. Not a job to help carry your family through living. There is many great co-workers but at times it can be difficult. The higher ups want more from you and at the same time they want to take more benefits away.

Fun staff to work with, everyone was easy to talk to, we were one huge work family. I learned great customer service skills and how to work with many different people everyday, and how to handle cash, card and cheque payments from customers.

My day used to be tiring. I was hired as a cashier but they also give shifts to bring the buggies from the parking lot to the store. I found it very rude because they did not mention it in the job description. The management was quite strict, They barely gave you any off even when u are sick.

Management was awful and almost completely absent. They kept booking me in for when I had said I couldn't come in because of school and then proceeded to get upset that I couldn't come in. Would also book me in for extra shifts and not let me know, would then call me upset that I hadn't arrived for the shift they hadn't told me about. Training was poor and management was often completely absent. All emergency exits had been blocked as had the customers bathroom.
Pros
Customer interaction experience
Cons
Almost the entire job
