The management and staff here are like family. You joke, you laugh, but take your work seriously. As long as you do what you need to there's no issues
You must prioritize! You will have your everyday tasks but sometimes managers give you extra tasks plus you need to tend to customers.

Advice to Management
Be more consistent
I worked at Fred Meyer part-time (More than 5 years)
The pay is good and it doesn't take too long to see a raise. The people make it worth your while.
Scheduling is a pain, if you need a day off they don't really help to work around it.
Starting in any department gets your foot in the door to start working your way up. There are five major departments to work at the store level as well as main office operations, logistics/warehouse, and other Kroger affiliated positions. If you are a good worker they will frequently call you in for more hours than you are originally allotted allowing you to gain valuable experience and bonus points with managers. There are around 300 Fred Meyer stores to work at so if you like a change of scenery in the Northwest there's probably a Fred Meyer for you to work at.
Not enough constructive feedback from some managers. Frequent manager shifts so don't get used to a particular one. The only way to move up in the company is to work at different stores so in store promotions are generally not allowed. Zones can often times be large so Zone 2 is southwest Washington and some of Portland while Zone 1 is the greater Portland area. Other zones are even larger like the Idaho/Utah or Alaska regions.
Advice to Management
More access is needed for recent college grads both in store and in the main office. Talent is being wasted by putting this people in general PIC positions. They need to be the future of the company and while it is important to get the experience of the lower branches down they also need to be recruited for furthering themselves throughout the company.
