New management since Albertsons bought Safeway is VERY unprofessional and do not treat employees with respect. They are confused because they think they own you......they don't care about their employees. You are just a work horse to them.

In the store you can go in with your application and keep in contact but trying to apply at the Tracy Warehouse for a dispatcher witj their on line website you might as well forget it. You have to have a friend work their so they can ask HR to pull your application they are horrible to even get an interview with otherwise. They keep hiring the wrong person how do you know they are constantly hiring again after they just hired 6 months ago because the person isn't working out. Hire someone besides who your friends recommend and you'll find a great dispatcher!

Cerberus owns both. This company bought Albertsons out 10+ years ago when they went under. And then bought out safeway. Albertsons being the big brother in the situation gets most of the say in what decisions are being made like what sales, displays and so on. Each company is still it's own. Employees are not aloud to transfer between or work at the other. Joint meetings are often both companies and will usually share in simular sales and ads.

Not pertaining to my situation but, some of the managers need to learn to be a little more professional. I have met a few that mix their personal feelings with their professional feelings.
