    Pros

    Your position offers a constant work in progress. A salaried employee is challenged physically and mentally everyday.

    Cons

    A salaried employee is only as good as the work performed that day. If you choose to take a salaried position at Frys Food, please get all your health benefits, contract upgrades, bonuses and placement in writing. As a salaried employee your work environment is subject to change as many times as the corporate team deems necessary.

    Advice to Management

    If you promise benefits...give them to your management staff. If a manager is failing remove him/her from the team and retrain that individual...put on an improvement plan showing that the manager can perform basic functions within the store environment. Allow the staff to perform their duties and not compensate for a team leader that does not have the skill set to perform the basic tasks. This will provide the store culture a positive improvement and motivation to promote within.

    Pros

    They are willing to give hours and work with employees needed hours, Able to receive overtime pay each day that you work more than 8 hours.

    Cons

    Employees start a a very low rate of pay with little to no chance of advancement. A person that is bagging starts at the same rate as some one that is having to work much harder stocking items. Communication is greatly lacking and most management is unwilling to listen to their employes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employes and notice if a position requires more to do than others they should receive a pay difference.

    Pros

    They pay more then the min pay for the started employee because Fry's supported by the Union.
    Easy interview,
    old contract employees have more benefits than the new contrast's

    Cons

    company runs by experience not education
    saving money by cutting employees hours
    saving hours by early clock out
    Fry's is Walmart
    It is about who you know not what you know to get promotion
    Lot of Favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Experience is not enough to run business must be joined with education

    Pros

    °Customers are great, and actually, make it worth working here.
    °Give plenty of hours if you need it.
    °lots of opportunities to go to different departments.

    Cons

    °Management doesn't communicate well with employees.
    °Will be scheduled outside of a availability hours.
    °Don't inform you of schedule changes.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, work would be perfect if management would get their act together. They're forgetful when it comes to employees, and are reluctant to admit their mistakes. Many people at our store quit because of the management, and it isn't hard to see why. It's a good starting job, but full time isnt worth the stress.
