    I have been working at Fred Meyer

    Pros

    Decent pay, great coworkers and a fun place to work. If you work hard then you won't have any issue. Also there is a lot of flexibility with scheduling.

    Cons

    It's a union job and it can be difficult to get full time hours. A lot of people are stuck working part time. Grocery is definitely the department to be in. It is a lot easier to get hours and it pays the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that Fred Meyer stores should all go back to non union. It would greatly increase productivity and they could get rid of a lot if the associates who are lazy and dont do there job.

    I worked at Fred Meyer

    Pros

    The discounts are incredible. %10-20% off EVERYTHING in the store. Add that with a coupon, sale and bonus coupon & you've just saved a hundred bill. It's life consuming because they always make you want to come back. The only thing I don't buy at Fred's are the clothes, ironic that I work in the clothing department.

    Cons

    The life to work ratio in my life is sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can be pretty cruel at times, but if you work hard and rock a smile you'll do just fine.

    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was good pay for the job (working at the deli) and had good coworkers.

    Cons

    Sometimes we had to wash dishes until late and it was not the times I had signed up for initially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make the schedules more convenient for students that have to work and go to school also.

    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time

    Pros

    Best thing as a parcel is you got to talk to different persons everyday.

    Cons

    Of course, this is a retail job. So what can we expect with the pay. It would be minimum wage and not worth the work efforts. There are so many things to do especially those busy hours.

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

    Pros

    Fred Meyer fosters a great in-store culture, promotions are there for people who want to have a career there and compensation is above average. What made it a pleasant work experience is the training that was provided, teamwork among the departments, low turnover and policies that were not only realistic but doable in your daily routine. Also, the Associate Discounts really helped with personal finances:)

    Cons

    Being retail you'll have be flexible with your work schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue building the team from with-in, always revisit policies just to make sure everything is correct.
