    Pros

    Being in the Grocery department, I have a very good income. I am union and I have awesome benefits for my family ($22/week).

    Cons

    I've worked in 5 different FM stores and some people in management are not the greatest. This will come with any job though.

    Pros

    Never had to worry about asking for more hours, decent to great pay depending on position, pretty flexible for when you ask for time off

    Cons

    Very strict attendance rules, management can be difficult due to constant changes as upper management moves from store to store frequently

    Advice to Management

    A larger sense of permanence from management would be nice so you could get to know who you're working for, and so you can build more rapport between employee and employer.

    I've had a good experience working at Fred Meyer -- my coworkers were welcoming and management encouraged me to do my best. Everyone is treated well and our location has plenty of work to go around. The company seems to have better employee benefits than its competitors.

    Problems can sometimes take a while to resolve.

    Pros

    As a member of a union, my pay was pretty good for a retail position. I really like about half of the managers, while the other half were not very pleasant. The scheduling is pretty flexible when you need time off.

    Cons

    It is a giant corporation, so expect to feel like you are just a cog in the machine.

    Advice to Management

    Be positive!

    Pros

    Fun but hard work. Passionate about their people and results. Good benefits, tuition reimbursement, encourages opportunities for personal growth and promotes from within.

    Cons

    Too many programs to enforce that are created by people who may have never worked retail and may not realize the difficulty in enforcing them within the store. Promotions are met with constant movement of store locations in efforts to create more experience but at the cost of work-life balance.

    Pros

    Coworkers are positive and encouraging to each other. Great company culture. Work life balance is highly valued and respected.

    Cons

    Restructuring has been handled poorly. Management seems lost and unreachable. Yet this has not hurt employee moral. Unsure if career development is available

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they are your best asset and they care about the work they are producing.
