Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee) – South San Francisco, CA – May 27, 2016
A day working as a courtesy clerk at Safeway would usually start with helping customers bag their groceries. If it was really busy i would be outside collecting carts to return to the front of the store. If the day was a bit slow I would do a sweep log, which is walking around the store, making sure it was clean to ensure the safety and satisfaction of customers. I learned how to speak to customers very well and quickly problem solve. My co-workers and management are always very helpful when ever I have a question or need help assisting a customer. The hardest part about working at Safeway would have been memorizing items and what aisle they were in. The most enjoyable part is meeting and speaking to customers.
Amazing customers, love what i do, that's all ì have to say. .

Saw way too much turn over since I've been there. There are a couple corporate employees I think do a great job but I feel that their hands are tied but know the issue :) ..But again I do love what I do . I leave the rest to God.
All Purpose Clerk (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – May 26, 2016
A typical day at work is total labor, cooking, cleaning, sales, helping customers, breaking down loads, sales, and pricing. I have learned pricing, how to order, how to train individuals. Most of my co-workers are pleasant, and friendly. The hardest part of the job is breaking down the loads. I love helping the customers find the products they need and being friendly to them.
Can get good sales, and sometimes discounts.
It is total labor, and the benefits are not that great.

Deli Clerk (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – May 25, 2016
Everyday at work I make sandwiches to put out for sell (production). Through out the day I have to make sure the deli is clean at all times. Keep the store clean includes taking out the trash, sweeping the floor, washing dish, and making sure the deli and hot case is clean. I also serve the customer self serviced sandwiches and meat/salads.
Great co-workers and customers make a long day enjoyable.

Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Lewiston, ID – May 23, 2016
As a courtesy clerk, I bagged groceries, help customers with these bags to their cars, price checked items for customers, assisted cashiers with customer request and performed many tasked asked by the store manager. Courtesy clerk also returned items to store shelves, needed to know the locations of all store items, keep floors clean, restrooms in good order and returned shopping carts to store front. As a full time student, my store managers worked with my schedule and always asked me to fill in for other clerks needing time off. I was reliable, well groomed and ready to work every time I was on the schedule. Our store closed, and I lost my job. I really like working for Safeway.

I was a floater for seafood dept at safeway in south king county. very structured job you always set the case the same way to safeway specs/secret shoppers were very important and for every "10" you received on a secret shopper report there was some type of gift whether a gift card or free coffee...

variety of seafood departments to work in
I wasn't able to be creative in setting the case/also not to much fresh exotics and salmon
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 21, 2016
The only thing I liked about Vons was the customers I provided my services to. The store manager and the assistant manager didn't provide the services I needed to work there. The store manager and the assistant manager I no longer there at Vons, but that is okay I loved working for my customers.
The Store Manager, Assistant Manager, and one Supervisor
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Nogales, AZ – May 21, 2016
You can expect to get moved to a department if you present yourself with a good image. I started off as a courtesy clerk but I was then moved to the bakery department to help them close out. Then I was then splitting up time between the Bakery and the Deli Department. You can't expect an increase in pay but you can be given bigger responsibilities which will only help you develop skills.
