    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Medical benefits, sick pay, always have work. It is retail and when you get to know customers and they come and see you regularly it is a bonus.

    Cons

    Low pay, if I were married or a child of someone higher up I would have made full-time status and higher pay.
