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.

    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time

    Pros

    It is great when it is near Christmas and they give you about 25-30 hours.

    Cons

    It sucks after the new year that they cut your hours to about 18 a week, just a few hours shy of being able to maintain the benefits. You have to pay union dues even though if you don't get enough hours, it really doesn't seem to do you any good.

    Advice to Management

    HR states they want to make sure you can get benefits, so make sure no one gets hired at less than the required amount per department unless it is for an awfully good reason.
