    Pros

    Management (at my store at least) is very relaxed. Work is easy, and keeps you busy and passes by time quickly.

    Cons

    Doing carts outside during summer is not a fun time, other then that everything is fine.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great and some managers are really down to earth cool people.
    Tasks are easy if you know what you're doing and ask the right questions.

    Cons

    Management can be better. Not much structure of who is who's boss besides what seniority dictates. i.e. someone who has been with the company 10+ years may try and tell the manager who's been there 5 years what to do.

    Advice to Management

    Get better at managing in general..
    Worry less about the managing and more about the day to day work that needs to be completed. Step in to help if you see your workers need it.

    Face to face time with customers.

    Pros

    None unless you believe in modern day slavery.

    Cons

    No work life balance
    Employees are treated like garbage
    Favoritism is rampant
    HR department is a joke. They are Facebook buddies with the managers they are supposed to police.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your store managers and how they falsify documents on a daily basis.
    Blow up your HR department and bring in outside people who aren't going to lunch with store managers and supervisors.

    Everything else is horrible, they use you like a pawn. They never EVER think about you, just the costumers. I haven't met anyone that likes their job at fry's.

    Pros

    >Good hours if you work
    >Nice Employees
    >Benefits after 2 years (not bagging)

    Cons

    >The managers only care about their pay, and making customers happy.
    >No employee recognition.
    >By the books or not? it's both. but not in your favor unless you're a manager.
    >You are expected to do things you don't get paid for, or that aren't in your job description. and sometimes you get a say.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employee moral. Don't excpect you're employee to do more than you, ei; walking around the store most of the time or taking hours to fill a display, with two people. When that's not allowed for employees. stick to your rules and be fair, to customer and employee.
