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

    Pros

    A good opportunity for me to gain experience interacting with cutomers.

    Cons

    Managers publicly humiliated me over and over. Customers are mostly blind to how poorly employees are treated. I was blamed for things that weren't my fault, can't remember a single time managers showed me gratitude, I was treated with hostility for doing what I was supposed to do.

    Advice to Management

    Your culture is deeply broken, you need to see the value in your employees and build them up with kindness.

    Take care of your store managers and assistant managers

    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.

    Pros

    You can buy a snack for your break.

    Cons

    Revolving door. People don't stay here for long. Those that do stay have no choice since they need a job and can't find another one.
