  • Jesus yiou guys pay attention when you read about your wages or else youll get screwed. the first wage increase requires 1050 hours of work, with each additional step only requiring 740 hours to reach the next level, each department maxing out at slightly different rates at about 16.50/hr in california. however checker and produce positions are the only two departments who have a wage cap at 21.500 an hour. wage increase4s also are supposed to occur when you nrecieve a promotion. to do this properly may require as union reps backup to guarantee success. i just recently got promoted to produce from a courtesy clerk, in which i am supposed to get an extra 55% per hour with a second increase to 16 on labor day. but you will almost positively not have your title upgraded without demanding it with a union reps power behind you

  • The Direct 2 Hr app shows you how many hours you need to work to get a raise. It's under my job information.

  • Not very often I believe. I think it is once every 1000 or so hours. But it takes a while since nobody is even given 40 a week.

  • One time per year in June. It (your minimal increase) will not be enough to keep you close to being whole for their not so good AT ALL benefits package increase that happen each year. Your review will be easy though. No review. There done. Seriously, at corp there are absolutely no performance measures, and the real kicker is the increase for corp emps will be based on the sales success of the banner or sub banners. Don't know about you, but I don't want my great performance to be quantified by how many heads of lettuce Safeway sells each quarter.
