Service Manager, Alcohol & Beverage Department (Current Employee) - Fairfax, VA - July 9, 2015
Since buying Safeway, the company has adopted the philosophy to be open and transparent. Providing more incentive comp to managers, and attempting to add value to the employer brand. I think the HR department still has a way to go in terms of being a true business partner and thinking outside the box to develop a compelling employer brand philosophy that motivates, inspires, and challenges individuals to be the best they can be.
Innovative in new business initiatives, and training. Senior Management is open to change
Benefits are poor, no matching 401k, incentive comp is not consistent, and work life balance is poor. Store Directors can be very poor managers
I love interacting with all my customers but management makes work difficult

Customers are great the job itself is great but if management don't get what they want they take it out on the employees won't work with availabilities pay only starts at 9.00 no matter what department and never hardly any raises
I give this particular store a rating of 3 on a scale of 1-10

Would be very helpful if I had a stable schedule. Be nice to also have two people on each shift. So there's less stress on one employee. Having two consecutive off days would be a plus that are back-to-back.

I got the same schedule most weeks. I got to work independently and with customers. Managers were wonderful, always had full confidence in my work ethics. I learned to oder supplies and work at a fast pace. I always had work to do, I really enjoyed working there.

A great place to work, especially as a first job. Entirely possible for a person to be hired as teenager in high school and turn the job into a career, including moving up to top positions at the company. The company is very accommodating for employees who move to new cities in assisting them secure a job at another location, which is extremely helpful especially for college students.
Inventory control clerk (Current Employee) - Surprise, AZ - December 9, 2019
Good company to work for just need a change and more pay. A lot has changed since the merger. Safeway has been very good to
Me for the 34 years that I have been with but it’s time to move on to something new.
Albertsons doesn't care about anyone or any of their companies. They are good at ruining things. They closed the facility and not one member of Albertsons management came to even try to help find new jobs. Only the supervisors that wer laid off as well actually cared enough to help with trying to find a new job. Albertsons has been tearing apart families since 1839
customer Service booth associate, (Former Employee) - Gallup, NM - December 9, 2019
I moved up fairly quickly. I made a lot of good friends, and I learned so much about the grocery business. I learned orders, pre-orders for holidays. I learned invantory, rotation, stocking, wrapping, how to get into our work portals for invoices, and other work related tasks. When I left, It was hard because I worked there for so long but, the job took a a tole on my body. I left for a change in occupation, but I feel so lucky to have been able to work there. I learned so much and it made me a better employee.
Albertsons has a workplace filled with fun people who made work every day fun.
A typical day started with morning duties and a Courtesy Clerk had an hourly responsibility to clean all bathrooms and sweep floors. I was also in charge of collecting all the shopping carts.
Speed is of the essence working at Albertsons, at least in the bakery. early hours which freed up the rest of my day, but it's the same thing day after day and you have to do everything within a limited time slot.
