Great individuals to work with. Just poor hours and pay.
Cashier, & Customer Service (Former Employee) – Rogersville, AL – September 26, 2016
I expected advancement after I had worked there for over a year and saw none. It took nearly a year and a half for a proper evaluation and although I scored high the raise was not as beneficial as I had hoped. The hours also did not improve due to constant cuts and changes with corporate. Though I enjoyed working in this location and my store manager was great to work for and with. She offered what over time she could when asked and often was flexible with the schedule if you had doctor's appointments and the like.
Great staff, wonderful customers
Poor pay even after I recieved a raise, and hours would fluctuate constantly.
APPAREL EXPERT/CASHIER (Former Employee) – Gulfport, MS – September 9, 2016
Co-workers made Fred's a fun place to work. The experience and knowledge I gained through working at this company, I will never forget. There were good days and bad days but working with people who were like family is something you can't put a price on.
SALES ASSOCIATE/ ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Augusta, AR – September 9, 2016
Before I left management was horrible, one of the managers was lazy and didn't really want to do any work, same goes for a couple of coworkers. I got called in to work constantly even on my days off. The job became to stressful for me which is why I left. I learned a lot working there and I even enjoyed being an assistant manager, but going to school and constantly getting called in made it difficult and stressful.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Alexandria, AL 36250 – August 27, 2016
I started as a cashier and I learned that customer service is a very important aspect in retail work or anywhere public. After 5 months I began to travel with my DM and work in other stores and quickly moved up to assistant manager. There was nothing really hard about this job, the only part I was not very fond of would have been unloading the stock truck every week. I made many friends, life long friends, and many many memories with unforgetful people.
cashier (Former Employee) – Chester, SC – August 19, 2016
I loved working at Freds. A typical day at work was long but fun. You met all kinds of people.The management was nice. My co workers helped me learn the ropes.The hardest part of the job was when someone wrote a check. I enjoyed talking to the customers the most.
This was a good company to work for during college.
Manager in Training (Former Employee) – Troy, AL – August 15, 2016
The store manager worked with me due to being in college at time of employment. This was one of the major benefits of the store. I like the responsibility and challenge of being a third key and learning management skills, while taking business courses at Troy University. I felt this was perfect real life experience of what I was learning in class.
flexable schedule, convenient location to home and school
Accountant (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – August 11, 2016
Enjoyed working in the corporate office. Really relaxed environment and awesome people to work with. Drawbacks was the dress code (jeans only on the 4th Friday), low pay, hard to advance, and outdated systems. Other than that I appreciated my time there.
Laid-back office, cafeteria with cheap food, flexibility.
