I worked at Fred Meyer

Pros

Gain valuable experience and insight. Good people. Opportunities to be promoted to higher levels within company.

Cons

Pay scale could more at assistant buyer and planner level. Many assistants take their great training to other companies that off higher pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase salary at assistant level to keep the talented assistant buyers and planners from leaving to companies that offer better wages.

    I have been working at Fred Meyer

    Pros

    the employees are awesome, kind, and caring
    the employee benefits are helpful
    close to where i live
    pays the bills
    pay scale is very nice

    Cons

    #1. Way too busy for the amount of staff we have.
    #2. You get rude customers that expect you to be all knowing in the checkstand
    #3. You never EVER have a stable work schedule. you work a 3-11:45 day and then the next day you are there at 8 in the morning.
    #4. Very hard on the body and mind.
    #5. If you are 5'7" or taller you could potentially have back problems because the bags at the checkstand are so low you are consistently bending over with just about every order.
    #6. No baggers!!!
    #7. They will sometimes have you to cashier despite originally coming in that day to parcel. They also have a tendency to forget this, which requires you to call and remind them of your current position.
    #8. You are also sometimes left with no breaks due to their negligence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please hire baggers, having to scan, bag, and cart groceries on very large orders by yourself is very hard, and it makes the customers have to wait. If we hire just baggers that would cut that time in half And possibly get locks on carts, we lose so many carts due to customers taking them back home with them, but having those locks that some places have on them it would save the store and company a lot of money from not having to replace those stolen carts.
