I have been working at Fred's full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great company that still has a sort of down home feel throughout..

Cons

Product availability can often cause customer issues and areas of the company, especially technology, seem stuck in the 80's.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give managers the tools to succeed including new technology (I. E. Not everything still on paper) and making sure product is always available.

    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.
