    Excellent coworkers and caring staff

    Front End Cashier (Current Employee)

    ProsAs my first experience in the retail industry, Fred Meyer has been one of the best. My coworkers are pretty much all fantastic. It's a union job, which should speak for itself. The PICs are really understanding to your situation. Most of the customers seem friendly.

    ConsUsually, hours aren't regular. I mostly work evenings, but I've also been thrown into morning shifts a few times. Like most retail businesses, there are some nasty customers, but as long as you can just move on from the last customer, you'll be fine.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI haven't worked here for super long, but for the length of time that I have been here I really enjoy working here.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I greatly enjoy working for Fred Meyer and couldn't imagine working anywhere else at the present time.

    Loss Prevention Manager (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsI enjoy that Fred Meyer believes strongly in a balance of work and personal life. I also enjoy the different opportunities to move up within this company.

    ConsI can' think of any cons other than maybe wishing there was Fred Meyer in more states than there currently is.

    Fred Meyer is great.

    CCK Cashier (Former Employee) Vancouver, WA

    ProsThe pay is good and it doesn't take too long to see a raise. The people make it worth your while.

    ConsScheduling is a pain, if you need a day off they don't really help to work around it.

    Very positive

    Staff Pharmacist (Current Employee) Medford, OR

    ProsGreat benefits, wages/salaries. Culturally aware and company works to make everyone feel wanted and comfortable. Leadership positive. Likes to promote from within and movement up the corporate ladder and from one department to another not discouraged. The company likes to develop the potential in all employees. Friendly atmosphere. Stock price going up.

    ConsSince the culture is one of tolerance it is easier for some to work less hard and survive in the workplace. These employees tend to be around longer than they would at other places. This can be annoying for those whose work ethic is stronger.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe judicial in all disputes and customer complaints.

    Great Company to work for, great senior managment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsReally care about making work fun and a good team environment. Great benefits. A lot of employee rewards. Tuition reimbursement.

    ConsLong work hours for management. Store directors not always on the level. Pay tops out too soon. People work there for 15-20 years and haven't had a raise in years and no chance at egtting one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to turnover. Pay attention to why the employees are really leaving. Check on how your store directors are REALLY doing.
