    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great, they became my family, The work is very easy and they have a union so your needs are taken care of. They are pretty good about working with your schedule.

    Cons

    A lot of the people in management don't pay attention to you further than your necessary function in the grand machine. T be fair a lot of the young people there have no ambition and so they treat their employees the way you would if the had no ambition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice: teach everyone in a position of supervising their employees better leadership skills. They should take more of an interest in their employees as people and communicate better.

    I worked at Fred Meyer

    Pros

    - Fun associates to work with
    - Can be fun working with customers
    - Fast moving environment

    I got employed here right out of high school. Worked here for about a year and a half and learned more about myself and what it's like to work. It's a tough job and could be even tougher working with various customers, but can be very rewarding

    Cons

    - It's retail.
    - Depending where you live, you might run into those "picky" customers and you have to deal with it. But they're few and far between.

    I have been working at Fred Meyer

    Pros

    They have a great medical & dental plan.

    Cons

    From what I hear they don't listen to the employees desires or needs. I heard someone had to get hurt on the job before Fred Meyer would even consider their safety concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of what your people in charge are doing. They must lead the way & show the right thing to do, not just boss everyone around.
