Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Escondido, CA – April 29, 2016
The two most memorable things about working at vons were the friends i'd made and the things i'd learned during my employment. I was a courtesy clerk which meant that i would bag groceries, assist in location of items when asked and on occasion I would take items back that people decided not to buy (called "go-backs"). I honestly would like to work there again. if they'd let me.
Bakery Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Washington, DC 20011 – April 28, 2016
It was my first official day to day job, So I went in confident and thought I knew it all. As the days went by my flaws started to out weigh my strong work habits, I used to be late 3 times out the week and i'm really not a socialist so my boss was getting on me about that and there were few butt holes inside the bakery so it was an eerie feeling sometimes. But there were good and bad days on the job but thats how its goes at any other job as well, so make everyday good for yourself by just being on time and limiting your mistakes to a minimum and everything will work at the end of the day.
Night Manager (Former Employee) – Coos Bay, OR – April 27, 2016
I have been with Safeway for almost two years. I brought a bunch of experience with me when I started there, and was told that I would move up quickly. With as much experience that I brought to the table I expected to be in a better position than I am now. Safeway has no real plan for me and continues to talk as if they do. I would like to make the move to a company that can put the skills that I bring to the table to use.
Journeyman food clerk (Former Employee) – Alameda, CA – April 27, 2016
I enjoyed going to work every day. I had very good relationships with most of my customers and coworkers. Management changed frequently but I built a good relationship with most.The hardest part of the job was standing for eight hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing people on a regular basis and developing friendships.
Productive, great work ethics from everyone. Fun workplace with activities, gym and ping pong table

Everyone is here ready to help everybody out. When you reach out for help, people are willing to help out even if it means contacting someone else that is better equipped to help. On holidays there are activities and there is always a Thanksgiving dinner that is provided to all employees. Gym and ping pong table are a new edition to this building and has had many participants.
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Tigard, OR – April 26, 2016
Worked in meat and seafood department. Was a seafood manager for 3 of my 5 years there. I was one of the few women working in the meat/seafood department and I enjoyed working with men who talked candidly and were not thin skinned.
Management was good about trusting the meat/seafood department to do their job to the best of their abilities.
Seafood is considered a "luxury item" in the economy right now and sales were difficult to keep consistently up. t the store I was a manager I had to make the hard decision to demote myself and allow there to be only a meat manager to run both departments.
Produce Clerk (Former Employee) – Sweet Home, OR – April 26, 2016
A usual day would start with me taking over the produce section of the store from the daytime manager, after he left I would begin facing up the produce while helping customers, after I had faced up the produce I would spend time in the store room and the freezer making sure the areas were clean and the produce was neatly stored, while checking the back store room I would also take an inventory of the items that we had while making notes of the items that would need to be ordered the following week. While doing all of this I would also go assist at the front check stands when needed.
Starbucks Clerk (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 23, 2016
