    Seriously the stores in my area are located in areas that are over 75% white with plenty of teens and people in their 20s. Yet most of the employees are non-white? If you look at Fry's internal phone directory that has about 100 people in it, at least 3/4 of the people have Asian, Jewish or African surnames. Does Fry's practice reverse discrimination? I'm thinking of going to the EEOC with this. Not to mention we only get 10 minute breaks when state laws SAYS 15. Not to mention the serious lack of legal breaks on black Friday. This company is run by a bunch of greedy capitalists!!!!!

    lol.. go shove a sock in your pie hole..  
     
    as far as 10 minute breaks go? when did you even take your last 10 minute break? It seems like everyone stretches them into 20 minute breaks anyways.. or slack off a little at other times.. Heck I barely take breaks to begin with other than lunch.. unless it's dead or i'm having a bad day. but as for the lack of white people.. You act as if that's a bad thing.. Heck, I'm white and would rather work with the group we have there. I find the diverse group to have more nicer people in the group rather than if they were all or mostly white. But the real reason you get a big group of minorities working there is because for some odd reason they are drawn to apply there.. and they get hired.. not more so than white people, but they apply there more often than white people.I'm crushing your head... You flathead!

    I guess it really depends on where you work at and who applies. There seems to be a lot of either white people, or indian people at this store.  
     
    I guess either way, if Fry's hired a bunch of white people, everybody would say it's racist against other cultures. Then when all the other cultures get hired, Fry's is racist against white people. Lose-lose situation.  
     
    I find it odd that you even bother to think or care about this- people who seem to care about these things and think about racist tend to be racist or reverse-racist themselves. Everybody else who doesn't think about this stupid crap, doesn't care, and they aren't racist for that- it's just that doesn't really seem to be an issue that we should think about it.

    My question is why do most girls work as a cashier or in the cafe... isn't that sexist? :)  
     
    But the store I work in has a pretty good mix.. not a lot of white people, but well there can be demographic differences between races... *shrugs* You may see more asians because they are more into technology? Indian people because they are more into sales? I don't think it's just because they don't hire white guys for any particular reason other than they might not get enough applicants that are white or qualified, not there are a lot of qualifications to get a job at fry's, but you cannot just hire everyone in a stack of applications..Hiya kids.

    Actually, at my store- more guys are at cafe then girls. More girls are at Front Check Out, very few guys besides myself up there... which is okay for me (less competition w0000hhh)

    The reality is, Fry's hires the cheapest labor they can find. Those that are willing to work for minimum wage, have no real career aspirations, and just don't care.  
     
    There are some, like Josh here, who are probably working at Fry's to help pay for college, but those are few and far between.

    Exactly considering that at Frys only a small handful of sups have degrees and most are past college age or at the end of the age range for traditional college student.

    I find this to be very true. Seems like most businesses end up this way- especially since the way the economy has been running, more people looking for jobs compared to companies hiring. They pull in all the people and see what they are willing to do... count money, keep track of invoices, ring up sales, clean bathrooms? You got a cashier with janitor duties mushed in there. I wouldn't be surprised if other places did this too.  
     
    I find this shocking at my store considering we are right next to a college, I would think a lot of these students would work here- but very few. I guess I'm just one of few that can put up with some things and move on- while the others are sitting at home having their parents pay for their school and books- In the end, I'll find myself at top, not only having the college degree (plan to get masters), but the job experience too... even if it's not that great, it's more than these other students will have.

    I know this thread is a bit old, but here's the thing that caught my eye. "Reverse Discrimination". It's not reverse discrimination. It's still just discrimination. If it were reversed, they would take whomever should be discriminated against. Get your crap straight.

    I agree..I went to Fry's the other day and there were ONLY Asian (not Indian..but like Chinese/Viet). I don't mind who they hire as long as I get good service. But in the store in my state, they weren't selling anything to us! All of the sales on Black Friday...I was the first in line, and they said they ran out. Then when I was about to leave, three asian people came over and the asian workers gave them the very laptop that I was asking for. It was so rude. I'm never shopping at Fry's or wasting my time at that store again. The workers who work there only sell to their own people.
    I'n not racist or going against Asians or anything..don't get me wrong. I just don't like the workers' discrimination at the store in my state.

    Reverse Discrimination? You're implying that all discrimination is whites discriminating against other races. discrimination is discrimination no matter who its against. White people arent hired because they dont apply at Fry's at least not in CA. why? BECAUSE ITS CA!
