    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly middle management and amiable coworkers.

    Cons

    Although the standard employee is under union contract, the corporation (Kroger) has very little regard for the well being of the employees or the management for that matter.

    Advice to Management

    Find a company that actually appreciates your talents and sparking personalities. Yes, you are worth more then Kroger has to offer.

    I worked at Fred Meyer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers were great to work with

    Cons

    Management frequently didn't understand the demands of the positions that they supervised. They were arrogant and unhelpful. Not enough people/hours are scheduled so customer service is always lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time doing the jobs that you oversee so that you have some understanding of the difficulties that are encountered.

    Pros

    The freedom of outdoors, not standing in one place, get to move around lots all day long. But weather isn’t the greatest to work in.

    Cons

    Not great management, no appreciation, company has gone very down hill over the year in my opinion. Damaged rain gear is given to you that doesn’t keep you dry :(

    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Okay pay, benefits if you can get them, free food sometimes. Awesome coworkers

    Cons

    Fred meyer used to feel like a family store, employees were all friendly, said hi. Always had great and numerous employee appreciation events. I used to feel like my job was important and i was contributing to the success of my department and team.
    The last year Fred meyer has gone through a lot of changes. Multiple high tier management positions were added to the store structure and nobody knows what they do except walk around the store and tell everyone how much they suck at their job.
    I feel like Fred meyer has taken a ton of hours from their hourly store employees to pay for these managers salaries as well. Floor coverage sucks. CCK always has all 3 outer departments cashiering ALL DAY. These are hours that could go to their own employees that have been cut down to 12 hours a week! Department leads cant do their job and spend 10 hours in a check stand a week.

     Also it's BS to make a person on a lower pay scale than CCK cashier all day. I probably spend more time in a checkstand than someone who actually works in that department while getting paid less than they would.

    They keep cutting hours and adding duties to employees daily tasks like walks and security checks and new structures for processing freight new policies about where you can stand when you process freight. Also new policies about When you are even allowed to throw your garbage out. How you are supposed to assist customers is a formula now rather than an encouragement to assist and connect with your customers.

    Also you're forced to wear an uncomfortable and hot polo shirt now when you used to be able to wear whatever you wanted (in ALE).

    Everyone who works here and used to love it is starting to hate it. New hires dont last long because it sucks here all the time now.

    (Been here 5 years)

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people who dont know what they heck they are doing and appreciate your employees more often rather than constantly putting them down.

    I worked at Fred Meyer part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They are flexible with your schedule if you just need a part time job and a lot of the people there are very friendly.

    Cons

    Very disorganized and a lot of pressure is put on you to perform for a minimum wage job that has union dues.

    Advice to Management

    Organize things a lot better. It is so disfunctional and causes a lot of additional stress to employees. It makes it difficult to find product to satisfy customer's needs.
