    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Full benefits for part-time (25 hours a week). Most managers are flexible with availability for part-time employees. Depending on location, the regular customers are great.

    Cons

    There is a journeyman pay scale. Once you top out you can no longer get raises. Cost of living increases are not much and not very often.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a good, hardworking employee give them a raise.
