    I have been working at Fry's Food full-time (Less than a year)

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Health benefits, flexible hours, tuition reimbursement, paid vacation and paid time off

    Cons

    Difficult to receive flexible hours as needed, limited tuition reimbursement only for management, once you reach top put pay there is no room to grow which top out is about 13.00 an hour, favoritism favoritism and more favoritism, I've been harassed by fellow employees and customers with no action taken, this is a company for a short term job be prepared to be over worked and under paid with no recognition, open everyday of the year except Christmas

    Advice to Management

    Give recognition to all employees not just your upper management staff, stop worrying about the end of the year bonus you receive and do what's right for the department, employees, and customer you are a reflection of your staff

    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.

    I have been working at Fry's Food part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and it's at least some sort of income.

    Cons

    Low pay. Hovering around minimum wage. The flexibility they talk about is a ploy. They will not work around a college students schedule.

    I have been working at Fry's Food full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    You can build customer sales skills but working here is far too monotonous.

    I worked at Fry's Food part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Face to face time with customers. Discounts in kroger products.

    Cons

    Very slow wage increases. Terrible for requesting any time off. Little room for advancement. Makes you feel like a robot.

    Advice to Management

    Wage increases are unfair. You need a better system.

    Pros

    Insurance for $5 a week

    Cons

    Raises based on hours worked rather than job performance, no commission for good sales or raising sales, corporate sets dept schematic of all Fry's rather than catering to indivisual stores, corporate & store management aren't approachable, understaffed, underpayed, older employees & managers have a sense of entitlement, corporate expects you to go waaaaay above & waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond (unreasonable & unrealistic expectations), seems as if corporate gets bored of their jobs & spends way too much time finding ways to make our jobs more difficult by screwing with our hours, dept set up/display schematics, cutting orders/increasing orders/sending unordered items (plus out's), constant warehouse shortages spending way to much money on useless associate promotions/programs, etc. rather than making it easier & more efficient. Also, staring pay is really low, raises take an extremely long time just for 10-15 cents raise. It's like they want the employees to keep struggling financially & keep them working there for the rest of their life. No wonder people rarely stick around. Ugh, headache.

    Advice to Management

    Do what's right for the store/employees/customers rather than doing strictly what corporate/head office tells you.
