    I have been working at Fred Meyer

    Pros

    Relatively free to work on projects with others. Get to work with customers who are generally nice but can be unfavorable. Overall the compensation is not great and raises are on a hourly benchmark basis.

    Cons

    The management is not great and is bad at letting employee's know how well they are doing. No priority to grow entry level associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should reward its employees more and help grow their skills and capabilities. Overall I think there needs to be a higher level of professionalism by the upper management.
