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

    Pros

    I am excited to be at work. I thrive on on being helpful to Co workers to complete task. I'm always on time. I love to learn.

    Cons

    I feel for the amount education and attention to detail necessary for this position the pay scale is low compared to other positions . The work schedule should be consistent

    Advice to Management

    The best way to manage your personnel is to get your hands dirty and be aware of their needs and concerns. Don't always be a talker be a listener. A happy employee is one that feels needed and valued.

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

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, Union, PTO, medical/dental/vision for part timers, paid sick leave. Great coworkers, management not so much. Double time and a half on holidays. Basically if you’re getting paid 15 multiply by 2.5 that’s how much you’re making an hour for holiday.

    Cons

    Management don’t appreciate their employees. A customer complain about you, you get talked to. A customer tells you, youre an awesome worker, management just brushes it off.
    Tip: if you want to move up, you have to suck up.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t ignore you’re great employees, people come back because of them.

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

    Pros

    A nice thing about Fred Meyer is that if you are part time they have to at least give you 12 hours a week and if you are full time they have to give you 40 hours a week. After six months of being an employee you get holiday pay, vacation, and sick pay. Another good thing is that there are three ways you can get overtime. 1) Work more than 40 hours in a week, 2)Work more than 8 hours in a day, 3)Work more than 5 days in one week.

    Cons

    Because the store has a Union, you have to pay Union dues every week. The pay is low. I have worked for the company for a year and a half and had a previous year of experience before I started working there and I barely make above minimum. Every 1000 hours you work you get a raise of 5 cents and that is the only time you get a raise unless if you are in management or the minimum wage law goes up. The store closes at 11 and you are expected to stay until your work is done.

    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time

    Pros

    The kids in general are fun to play with and the parents are very gregarious and cheerful. Our Lead is very helpful and works hard every day with a smile on her face.

    Cons

    Having to close down for 30 minutes when the higher ups say nobody can come in for my lunch is a common issue for both customers and staff. Sometimes PICs completely forget I called them asking about my break/lunches.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the paper size for scheduled breaks/ lunches so that everything is on the front and Playland's isn't stuck on the backside, forgotten. Maybe even hire some other associates trained in first aid so that they could come in to relieve regular attendants for their break.

    Pros

    Discount
    Kinda flexible hours

    Extra pay on nights & Sundays

    Cons

    Everyone blames Kroger and act helpless

    Advice to Management

    Maybe friendliness scores will go up if cashiers aren't over worked. Customers don't understand why the other checklanes are closed.
