Job Description of Safeway Store Manager As It Relates To Meat Departments Part II


Safeway seems to have a much more complex job description than Kroger but again I don't see and direct involvement in meat department labor allocations. I underlined a few items that shows that a Safeway store manager has the duties to schedule hours but again it seems like every department but the meat department. Keep in mind that we are still talking about the affects of Work Load Discrimination through out supermarkets in general and we are not singling out any company. My point is that so far Store Manger job descriptions as it relates to store operations doesn't include the meat departments. Please correct me if I am wrong. 


Safeway has a really long job description so I have to compress it a bit.
