Food Clerk (Current Employee), St. Helens, ORSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: fun team
Cons: schedule constantly changes week to week
A typical day at work comes down to doing your best to make customers happy. I have learned to look at things with a different perspective so that I can see the flaws. I work well with coworkers because I think as a team player. I enjoy going to work because of the great co-workers.

Book keeper (Current Employee), south hills, eugeneSeptember 15, 2014
typical day at work consists of till audits and running the customer service counter. I've learned a lot about auditing, providing the utmost quality of customer service, and stocking back stock. the hardest part of the job is the fast paced atmosphere but that.s also one of the most enjoyable parts, along with the customers you come across everyday.

Working for Safeway has taught me alot about food safety, customer service, managing. It has been a great asset in my life.
Deli Field Merchandiser (Current Employee), Lanham, MDSeptember 15, 2014
Daily I go from store to store. I am responsible for 18 Safeway Deli departments. I make sure that they are following the marketing plan, following all food safety and sanitation processes. General safety of the employees as well. I manage 18 deli managers an communicate to them daily the needs of the business. The hardest part of the job is to get – more... them all on board with all of the programs. This is constantly a work in progress. The most enjoyable thing about the job is meeting many people and the feeling you have when all things fall in to lace as you have planned for them to do. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Ketchikan, AKSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: hours worked with school schedule
Cons: can be very stressful at times
A typical day at work began with immediately jumping onto a register to start checking customers out. I learned: how to operate the register system, I memorized a lot of different produce codes, how to diffuse high-stress customer/employee situations, the layout of the store, the proper way to bag groceries, etc. I really enjoyed working with all my – more... managers, they were helpful and looking out for my best interests. All of my coworkers were a joy to work with and helped out tremendously in difficult situations. The hardest part of the job was getting customers through the line as quickly and as accurately as possible. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with all different types of people, it kept the job interesting. – less
