Company is fine, corporation isn't
Front End Clerk (Current Employee) – Milwaukie, OR – August 9, 2018
The job isn't too bad, it's a bit stressful as you're dealing with hundreds of different personalities a day. The days go by quickly, but the pay is barely above minimum and odds are you'll only get 20 or so hours a week until the busy season where full time hours pop up. After the busy season, however, odds are good you'll be back down to around 20 hours a week.
Fred Meyer itself seems to be decent, there's still a sense of localness left there, but the parent company of Kroger doesn't seem too keen on keeping that. They limit hours and even limit the amount of paper grocery bags they send out to stores... I haven't been there long, but those two points definitely scream "pettiness is worth the pennies we save" mentality.
