"Got to be something better out there."
What do you like about working at fred's?
"Their health insurance plan through Blue Cross Blue Shield of TN is excellent. Best health insurance I have ever had."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Honesty. Fred's considers their employees to be their greatest source of risk, so know that up front. Don't hide anything about your past because they are going to look. LP runs Fred's."
What don't you like about working at fred's?
"Work is not anywhere close to the pay. Be prepared to work 60 - 70 hours a week with shrinking payroll and always elevated expectations. Corporate is always coming next week so you always have to be ready for that visit that never comes. That is, until truck day during the week of Thanksgiving."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Be prepared to work. Fortunately, the actual work entailed is rather enjoyable, but know that you will never be caught up - you will always be behind schedule in terms of what needs to be done. Also, be secure in your relationship with your spouse because you are never going to see them again."
