You feel like just a number.
Food Clerk (Current Employee), Hayward, CAAugust 29, 2015
Management doesn't seem to care about you. You are just a number. They cut hours to all employees to bring in lesser paid people. after 11 years I am still part time and only receiving 24 hours a week. They don't care. Its impossible to get a set schedule.

Productive with daily tasks that changed every day
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Zephyr Cove, NVAugust 28, 2015
Pros: Room for employees
With the 1 1/2 years that I worked there every day was a new experience. Often enjoyed time spending with other co-workers while doing daily tasks. Keeping a positive face towards customers was although rewarding, it was still difficult to manage. Was able to see friends at high school come in every now and then and made friends with fellow employees.

Well organized but Dangerous
Liquor Clerk (Former Employee), Fairbanks, AKAugust 28, 2015
Pros: Get to greet customers and make their night start out right.
Cons: Dealing with theft and dangerous situations without receiving breaks
The day mostly consisted of finding the right products for customers to help them relax and enjoy their night. However, some customers did not want to pay for their items and tried to steal, this happened at least once a week.

This company is a good company but has lacked in worker appreciation. It still has work stability but it is less hours. It has a good employee discount program.

Productive workplace where you could meet many people
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Breaks were at least every 2 hours, with lunches for 8+ hour shifts.
You could work at your own pace and enjoy the work you were doing all at the same time. My coworkers were friendly and tended to help me if I was confused or needed help with a certain situation.

Productive Place To Work
Seafood Clerk (Former Employee), Issaquah, WAAugust 25, 2015
It was my job to set up the seafood case, give excellent customer service and package food and check for freshness. It was also my job to make sure everything was sanitized and cleaned. The hardest part was that i disliked seafood.

Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Stafford, TXAugust 24, 2015
Pros: curstomer service, learning expierence and team work
Cons: not enough hours
This was my first part time job. I enjoyed working at Randall's. However, as I graduated High school I needed more hours with more money. I continued to work for Randall's for 6 months after getting a second job and finally between school, and holding down to jobs I just got burnt out.

Food Clerk/ Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Mountain View, CAAugust 24, 2015
Pros: Great Job Security and advancement
Cons: no work life balance
My typical day would be greeting my employees, customers and vendors. I would then start on payroll and get my schedule organized for the day ahead. I enjoyed most was my employees and customers. It was fun to get to know my regular shoppers too.

Could be better
Food Clerk (Current Employee), Albany, CAAugust 23, 2015
I love working for Safeway but I do not like the management for the company. The managers do not work, every time I see them they are sitting around talking. As an employee who started as a courtesy clerk and moved up to checker, night crew, frozen, dairy and now produce I believe hard work pays off but when I see the people that are above me and in charge doing nothing it makes me ask myself why am I busting my butt for 9.85 an hour when they make way more than me just sit on theirs.

Developing the Next Generation
Cash Office Clerk (Customer Service ) (Current Employee), Houston and DallasAugust 22, 2015
I loved working with families. I have volunteered/worked in a church setting with students and families going on 8 years. A day of work usually consisted of administrative work planning events and lessons for the students. Sometimes this would be delayed for the sake of investing in a students personal life and taking them for some hang out time. I enjoyed seeing students growing and living out the things we would teach them as I worked with 1-2 parent volunteers who assisted in teaching students. The hardest part of my job was time management as i worked another job on top of this job and went to school.
