I work in the friendly Renaissance Creek Safeway. It’s a beautiful location and probably the biggest Safeway I’ve ever seen. It’s a wonderful community of employees that make really great connections with their customers. I consider myself fortunate to take both parts in working in the Starbucks department and in the bakery department, and for a lot of reasons. because the bakery department makes some of the best looking cakes for anyone’s celebratory needs and brings up wonderful conversations. It makes a new day a different and unique one. The Starbucks department allows me to be creative and help recommend the best treats to everyone. Overall it’s something wonderful thing to experience different things each day.

The co-workers are great and very friendly! I absolutely loved working here, although your hours can be very disorganized. Other than that, it's a great place to work.
My opinion is that Safeway is making a lot of wrong decisions. Granted, everyone knows the biggest, single controllable expense is labor. Safeway has started to cut labor so bad, that most nights, any given store will only have two employees working.
The workforce is anemic and overly worked by having to do the workload of 2-3 people. Needless to say, this makes for long, tiring days.
The company has also done away with training. The only training employees receive now is what is to be found on the computer. Because of this, any "on the job" training instigated by department employees will be spotty and incomplete.
Management has no time for employees. Managers are themselves so over-worked, it's difficult to get time to discuss problems, concerns etc.
