Fry's Food & Drug Stores Reviews

I enjoyed my time working at Fry's. The training felt pretty thorough, and once you get settled in, it's fairly easy to get cross-trained and move to other departments you're interested in. The quarterly bonuses for survey scores are nice when you get them, and the scheduling is usually acceptable. You're subjects to the standard scheduling issues you face in customer service jobs. I started as a courtesy clerk and moved to the bakery after about a year. I found the bakery interesting so I enjoyed the work mostly. We struggled with lack of available hours for our department. Our shifts almost never overlapped, causing some difficulties with communication and teamwork, but this felt like a problem specific to our store at the time. I spent time at another store for some training and they seemed a bit better organized. It was easy to communicate with managers when needed, although schedules felt pretty our of our hands. All in all it felt like a fairly standard retail job.

I enjoy working with my coworkers in the pharmacy, but I believe efficiency could be increased. We recently became the only store in the town to accept a popular insurance plan, but we were not adequately warned or prepared for the increase in workload. Our pharmacy is too small to get prescriptions filled in a timely manner when it is busy, and we constantly bump into each other and knock things over. Other than the size of the pharmacy, which greatly contributes to our lack of efficiency, increased stress levels, and consequently unhappy patients, I do love working there as a tech when things run smoothly.
I still currently work at Fry's as a Courtesy Clerk, which means I bag groceries and push shopping carts. I've been employed for a little over a year and a half now. It is labor intensive, so for someone like me with knee injuries some days it hurts. The environment is EXTREMELY fast-paced. You have to be quick, the store is all about helping their customers efficiently so I learned I need to bag proficiently and in an organized manner. If I'm being honest, pushing carts is not something I look forward to. My store is always packed. At times it is difficult because you have to work twice as hard to keep the carts stocked because of how busy it is. The people in the Front End are nice, most cashiers are older ladies. The majority of the Courtesy Clerks are teenagers and young adults. The current set of managers aren't terrible, they have been nice to me. This type of job is something I am using as a stepping stone and not as a career, it works for now...
