Bad. Courtesy clerks with the longest seniority rarely get over twenty hours a week. I myself am lucky if I get over 10. They've also cut deli's and night shift's hours considerably at my store.

After so many hours you get raises. It took about 6-7 years to top out as journeyman. Then from there it's basic cost of living raises. Topped out at 21.75 in California and 20.50 in Washington.

Since a lot of the tasks and duties required from Store Management at Safeway include store operations such as inventory management and cash handling, corporate would most likely promote from within or select a candidate with retail experience (of some kind).
