I worked at the Ballard Safeway for 2 hellish weeks. They are in violation of so many health codes it is unbelievable (so check the health dept website...) The employees that tried to do something about it (talk to ALL managers AND corporate) were all punished by way of reduced hours, erratic schedules and forced extended lunches.
Indeed the Assistant Deli Manager and a couple of other employees were in the process of suing the company over it!! I felt like I was crossing a picket line everyday as the senior employees were very angry about their hours being repeatedly cut and mad that I was being given their hours. There were SO many customer complaints that customer service took away the customer feedback cards! The very WORST part was the realization that I had been feeding my family, friends and neighbors from this store for as long as it had been there...my son's WHOLE LIFE!!
Suddenly all the "stomach flu" episodes over the years made perfect sense. I AM PISSED!!!
