    Pros

    They are serious about development. They will help you succeed in your career by giving you the tools you need.

    Cons

    Favoritism and vice versa, hard to get around that sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone deserves a chance. If people need improvement, help them improve. Don't brush them aside.

    I worked at Fred Meyer full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive management and HR dept. Good pay, benefits and store discounts. The day managers were always willing to listen to my suggestions and they always let me know that I was doing a good job.

    Cons

    scheduling seems to always be a problem. No training in the beginning on the computer or phone system. They want you to ask a fellow employee to help you but most of them did not want to be bothered. Excessive product being shipped into the store because of auto order set ups, store managers should be able to have more control over this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find an employee or two that are enthusiastic about training and have them spend a minimum amount of time with each new hire. Have store manufacturer reps come in and give talks to sales assoc about their products (the higher end stuff) so assoc have appropriate info to give customer. CEO- let your individual store managers take back some of the decision making regarding their own stores. They know their neighborhoods and customers better than a corp head.

    Pros

    The company was great, co-workers were polite and motivated, it was a great working environment, pay raises were fair and given after a certain time period had passed.

    Cons

    In my position, speed was CRITICAL... it could be very, very demanding at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management was great, very considerate and they were always looking out for their employees. Keep it up!!

    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great, they became my family, The work is very easy and they have a union so your needs are taken care of. They are pretty good about working with your schedule.

    Cons

    A lot of the people in management don't pay attention to you further than your necessary function in the grand machine. T be fair a lot of the young people there have no ambition and so they treat their employees the way you would if the had no ambition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice: teach everyone in a position of supervising their employees better leadership skills. They should take more of an interest in their employees as people and communicate better.

    I worked at Fred Meyer

    Pros

    - Fun associates to work with
    - Can be fun working with customers
    - Fast moving environment

    I got employed here right out of high school. Worked here for about a year and a half and learned more about myself and what it's like to work. It's a tough job and could be even tougher working with various customers, but can be very rewarding

    Cons

    - It's retail.
    - Depending where you live, you might run into those "picky" customers and you have to deal with it. But they're few and far between.

    Pros

    Allowed employees to trade shifts with each other if you needed time off. Had a great crew and manager makes all the difference.

    Cons

    Expect to work weekends like any retail place and no set schedule. Sometimes evening shifts, sometimes mornings no guaranteed amount of hours a week. Started out lower pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enjoyed our management, even though I don't work there currently is nice to know I can go back. :)

    Pros

    Very good and stable work environment.

    Cons

    Low pay raises, best negotiation is your first. The work load will get heavier with each passing year until it is absolutely necessary to expand and hire out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a higher budget for expansion and raises.
