After a loan recipient completes one full year of full-time employment with a Safeway Company as a licensed pharmacist, Safeway will forgive the first loan obtained, either $5,000 or $10,000. Individuals who received a second loan will have the remaining loan amount forgiven after two complete years of full-time employment. For difficult to staff location loans, $10,000 will be forgiven annually. Loan forgiveness will not be pro-rated for partial years of employment. Calculations will be based on the employee's first day working for a Safeway Company as a full-time licensed pharmacist.
