    I have been working at Fry's Food part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good workmates, local to my home, 10% discount,

    Cons

    Random hours, no weekends off, various managers at the store tell people different things.

    Advice to Management

    To let people at least have one weekend day or one full weekend off a month were possible.
    Also the managers need to be on the same pages as being told several different answers from different people doesn't help me or the customers.

    I have been working at Fry's Food part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health benefits after 1 year. Only need to keep a 20-hour work week to maintain them. Plenty of hours to be accrued if you're flexible. Room for advancement of course.

    Cons

    Slow pay increases, although near the norm for large corporations. Not many other cons, unless you simply don't enjoy serving, assisting others.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your fellow employees often. Customer service can be draining at times.

    I worked at Fry's Food part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get treated very nicely, and they listen to you, for the most part.

    Cons

    When they don't listen, it's bad. There was a time I had to get home to my son so my husband could go to work, and they told me to leave my 10 month old alone at home to finish my shift.

    Advice to Management

    Listen better.

    The non-stop retail environment can get overwhelming at times, and most of the time you're under scheduled, but that results in larger bonuses

    Pharmacy hires technician with training license. Reimbursement for license and CE requirements. Able to pickup shifts on float pool.

    Low pay, health plan could be better. Wait is a year for medical plan, two years to add spouse, dental, and vision services.
