    I have been working at Fred's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Paycheck, comrads , don't see supposed supervisor often

    Cons

    Out dated computer, register,etc. Started at bad store, improved it even though mgmt tests YOU daily. Not near the help needed ! Lose patients due to poor inventory policies.if drug not in stock the patients you worked hard to plz go elsewhere! Then you're blamed,#s down! Update or fail, keep buying stores & running in ground, it will catch up eventually management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All best employees will leave, college degree employee should not be cashier or unloading trucks while patients wait.get help, only ones to stay don't have jobs to go,YET, lose experienced,talented individuals,if successful previously leave alone, cut, not increase paperwork, this isn't MBA place, losing happy, friendly employees & patients tell me do not like Fred's policies so going to Wal-Mart, or Kroger.

    Former Employee - SALES CLERK  in  Pittsburg, TX
    Former Employee - SALES CLERK in Pittsburg, TX

    I worked at Fred's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Understanding and flexible manager--but not every store is like that

    Cons

    Policies are not friendly towards longtime employees or college students. Only 4 days a year we got discounts at the store. I was only given a raise once out of working there for 4 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End your "no re-hiring" policy, end your policy of removing employees from the system if they are "inactive" for more than 6 weeks, provide a better bonus/raise system and increase employee perks.
