    I have been working at Fred Meyer part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits and I got promoted quickly.

    Cons

    You will never get your breaks or lunches on time. Very often you will have to wait 5 hours or more for your lunch or you get it 3 hours in and have two breaks later in the day if they even get to them later. Managers act like high schoolers and gossip about employees and will try to intimidate you into doing what they want. Shoplifters know that they can come in and steal and there is no loss prevention so you will deal with crazies all the time that threaten your safety with knives or other weapons and there is nothing you can do about that. This company doesn’t care about your safety whatsoever. The store manager is a bully who I quote: “likes to see people squirm”. Our focus right not is to “uplift every day” but the people that run this store do the exact opposite of that.

    I have been working at Fred Meyer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Union employees, good benefits after a year of working for this company. Sick time, vacation pay, personal days, some educational reimbursement, 401k. Stores close early on Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, stores completely closed Christmas Day. Room to move up in the company. Associates get discounts on items in certain departments.

    Cons

    Possiblity of working on Holidays and weekends. Not able to get a higher wage once you've "topped out" in the department you work in unless you are hired in another department or move up into management. Regular understaffing in almost every department due to a lot of turnover of associates in the company.
