"Good experience"

I worked at Fred Meyer part-time

Pros

Getting to help customers was always great, and I absolutely loved all of my coworkers. It was a good atmosphere, and I would work there again in a heartbeat.

Cons

Sometimes the expectations of corporate and management was too high. A heavy workload is one thing, but we're not superhuman, and it's ridiculous to ask us to have everything perfect by close when we still have customers on the floor at close.

Advice to Management

There should be a 30 minute window after close when workers can do a quick sweep before leaving without having to worry about being penalized for staying late.

    I worked at Fred Meyer (More than a year)

    Pros

    A very friendly place to work for, preferable to other retail stores.

    Cons

    Ineffective management and poor training.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be on the same page with each other, instead of telling subordinates to do two opposite things. They also need to dedicate more time to training employees in new tasks, instead of assuming they know how to do it or telling them to just figure it out.

    Advice to Management
