Safeway Careers & Info

Current CEO: Steven A. Burd

Status: Active

Safeway, Inc., as it''s known today, has been around since 1926 and has evolved throughout its 85 year history. What started out as a small, family owned grocery store in Idaho has grown into a chain of more than 1500 stores in the United States with hundreds more in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, West Germany and Mexico. While it has acquired and sold stores over the years, Safeway has always been committed to providing consumers with a friendly shopping environment and high quality foods at great prices.

Headquartered in Pleasanton, California, this Fortune 500 company offers both entry-level jobs and corporate positions. For many employees, Safeway careers span a decade or more due the positive experience that they report. Working at Safeway is a great way for teens to enter the workforce, learning communication and customer service skills that are transferable to any future career path they might choose. For college educated professionals, Safeway offers a variety of opportunities in their retail stores and at the company headquarters.

Past and current employees report that the Safeway culture is positive and friendly. Safeway''s management understand that much of the company''s success can be traced back to the retail store workers who are responsible for providing shoppers with a clean, well-stocked and pleasant shopping environment and providing top-notch customer service. They are rewarded for their hard work, promotions are frequently made from within the company and employees are encouraged to take part in the personal and professional growth opportunities that are offered.

Current CEO Steven A. Burd is well known for his innovative ideas and is continually working to make the company an industry leader in healthy living. He has instituted the "Healthy Measures" insurance plan which offers discounts on the employee''s health insurance premiums if they pass "tests" in the areas of tobacco usage, healthy weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. This promotes healthy living and rewards employees who take action to care for their bodies. These measures have helped Safeway''s health care costs, for both the company and employees, remain flat during the 2006-2009 time period while other companies saw costs rise more than 30 percent.

The Safeway benefits offered to retail store employees vary by region but include competitive wages, vacation time and insurance benefits. Non-retail employees are given medical, dental and life insurance plans, a fully paid retirement plan, a 401(k), and a Safeway stock purchase plan.
