Working at Slaveway sucks. You start at just above min. wage which the union dues take most of. There are 0 benifits, 0 discounts, and 0 perks to working there. The management for the most part sucks. You have to act really lame and fake to be appreciated. Don't do it! work somewhere else!

Does anyone know what days Safeway recognizes as Safeway Holidays for their corporate employees? How much sick time do they offer corporate employees?

Has anyone ever worked for Blackhawk? Blackhawk is owned by Safeway.

My boyfriend has worked for Safeway for two years, the union dues are crazy, they charge you initiation fee when you start, and then again when you get a raise. He ended up getting behind and they charged him way too much. They do pay extra for sundays and they count your birthday as a holiday so they can pay well there but otherwise the union makes things difficult.

Are you employed? Does your check clear every time? Do you risk life and limb each day you report for work and throughout the day? Probably not. Souunds like you've received a present. be greatful and stop complaining. Consider yourself lucky to be employed in this economy.

I've worked at a Safeway in Washington state for six months now. It's not that bad, we get time and 1/3 every Sunday, time and 1/2 every holiday, and a week's of paid vacation after you work there for a year. Of course, I'm still in high school and I have no bills, so it's a great job for me. I know most of my coworkers who are 25-50 kind of hate their lives working there, but if you're 16-25 it's a good paying job and a fun experience (:

We'll i do have to say I am in management at Safeway I manage 2 departments alone. I did start out at min wage, but if you do your best and want to work and show your willing to do what ever to succeed in what your wanting out of the company then there is ALWAYS room to move up! Out of the whole time I've been working for Safeway I have seen plenty of people move up in happiness,wages and positions... There are just some people how complain about having a job and don't want to work due to being so lazy those people don't work out nor should we keep them around and there are people who are thankful for having a job and those are the ones who move up and are very happy and enjoy there job at Safeway! There are plenty of wonderful benefits for working for Safeway! The starting wage does suck but if willing to work and not be lazy and a complainer then you will move up and get better pay I speak with experience! Thanks.

If you do not join the union they will let you go before your probation is up. Union dues vary depending on your rate of pay and position. As a department manager my weekly dues are about $10 a week, which just automatically come out. Initiation fees are a couple hundred, I'm not sure what they are currently. I was hired in the union in 2000, so I'm sure it's different now.

I have been working for Safeway for over 3 years. One thing is you start out roughly $.10 over minimum wage. You can get medical but its not very good and you pay a lot out of our check. You have to pay Union Dues which takes a good amount weekly. We get paid weekly. For Checkers its hard to get hours even if you've been there for a long time. Checkers can also can do other things to get hours, but hours are limited, but they get raises and can make pretty decent amount of money per hour. Courtesy Clerks weren't given raises until the new contract at the end of last year. Courtesy Clerks have a lot of things they have to do, but don't get the credit they deserve. There are many departments through out the store. I believe Safeway is a good starting place for people going to school or looking for a better job, or high school students. Good Luck hope this information helps someone. Have a wonderful day =)

Safeway sucks! Cheap company, crap wage increases and very low pay. There are no benefits, no discount. ..no incentives...very little hours, to stay at all. Management are idiots, no people skills at all and they are sneaky not to mention lazy. Yoy dont even get paid vacation! They expect you to save up to be able to afford a holiday. They pay u vacation pay once a year but not when you take holidays. Trust me, this company is a joke so don't waste your time. I stayed a little over a year and it was a little over a year too long. Most people there are a bunch of uneducated, over paid, useless people who sit talking on the phone all day to.their friends so others can do their job...and this is both store and department managers.
