There’s hardly ever any full time positions available and they will give you very random shifts. You can make good money in different departments, but you also could make minimum and only work 20 hours a week so it’s hit or miss.
Discounts in almost every department
Upper management is bad
Cashiers run a cash register up front. We also bag customers groceries and run self checkouts. We also put back products that the customers did not want and complete any other assigned task. Management is professional and understanding. Coworkers are also friendly and easy to work with.
Its a nice company with mostly great co-workers. Great for a first time job. Good pay but to much theft from customers and not enough hours to give out.
meet fun and interesting people
short lunch, to much gossip, overwhelming

Flexible schedule but other than that there is no upside. Customers treat you poorly and management does not train you. You are replaceable cog in the machine. A body for the meat grinder.
No training. Management takes avantage of you. Low pay
My time at Fred Meyer was good experience for my first job. I worked a part-time schedule during multiple hours of the day performing multiple tasks both physical and mental. These consisted of moving carts from the parking lot back to the lobbies, as well as bagging purchased items and interacting with customers in a friendly fashion. The manager at the South Medford location was a great guy, probably one of the best managers I will ever experience.
Good pay for a working high schooler, constantly busy, easy tasks, friendly management and co-workers, loose dress code
Lots of time on your feet, occasional cleaning inside and out of the building, dealing with angry customers (very rare)
Shelf stockers make more than deli staff. Deli workers have constant customer contact and deal with difficult people at times. There are high expectations which are good but when an employee deliberately avoids doing their share to make the entire effort a success, there are no repurcussions- complete failure to act and replace the slackers and trouble-makers.
Slow advancement; low pay for job performed

Jobs at Fred Meyer
I worked there over 10 years. Too many mangers who got promoted because they where the only person who applied. Corporate changes there mind constantly. You will be treated as a kid, and told you never do enough. Co workers are ok, but but it gets old. Not bad pay but won’t work there ever again.
Pay, vacation, stable.
Poor management, reminded that you are replaceable.
management joked around and treated the cashiers and employees like they were less of a human. the management is genuinely horrible. and i would not recommend working there. there are plenty of corporate friendly jobs out there. i worked there for 2 years and before corp took over and fired everyone, it was actually a nice place. but nope. it is now a ruined company fighting to get rid of all its employees and have it run by self checkout robots. 💜
I worked with freds for eight years. I was in manny management positions and it was a great learning experience for someone who was as young as I was. The cooperate side of the company is completely awful. If you want to be treated as if your a child who knows nothing after working overtime everyday and dealing with people twice your age who don't do any work than this is the job for you
just dont do it
read my rant
The front end manager doesn’t back up the complaints with the cashier that are coming from the customers. The cashiers don’t get backed up. The front end manager needs to look at while situations for the cashiers .Fred meyer looks at the cashier as it’s all the cashier fault.
Be kind and courteous to all around you there because if you do there will be some loyalty there with those customers as long as you can leave them with a smile
The co-workers are great and almost everyone gets along completely. The first tier of management is pretty involved and are almost always just like other co-workers. Minimum wage for people under 18, and no training.
Breaks and lunches on time, fun co-workers
Issues calling out sick, high anxiety workplace
The job itself is fairly easy and a great starter job for young people. I would definitely recommend for fellow high school students but keep in mind that management is often out of touch and can be difficult to deal with at times.
many opportunities for advancement provided you are over 18 and opportunities for extra hours
management tends to ignore internal issues such as schedule changes
Everything I like about working at Fred's is purely on an individual basis. I was lucky enough to find a good department with good people, but the pay was difficult to live on and HR was bent on maintaining the company line. What Fred's lacks is a backbone--they are owned by Kroger, and the nosedive in employee quality the higher you climb on the corporate ladder is painfully apparent. Not a good place if you're ambitious--a lot of management are old-timer types that don't intend to move up, meaning turnover in key positions is very low.
Good people, health benefits
