King Soopers Deli Management Position

Deli Manager (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at King Soopers for more than 3 years

ProsThe company is expanding in the market creating excellent job security. Union benefits are extraordinarily good. 401k available. Excellent plan for future deli growth of sales.

ConsTurnover of crew is higher then I expected. Not directly involved in hiring process. Union system precludes normal rewards for employees- better schedules and raises etc... Union scheduling combined with company needs and programs precludes flexible schedules for clerks. Hard (impossible with low seniority) to schedule around school or second jobs. Hasn't been an increase to base clerk hiring wage since March 2005. This has caused a slow deterioration in the quality of new clerks. No budgeted training hours forces new hires into trial by fire situation. All of this puts an additional strain on the management team.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Cashier - Great company, nice stores, customers suck, be wary of unions

Cashier (Former Employee)
Evergreen, CO

I worked at King Soopers part-time for more than a year

ProsWilling to schedule around school, decent pay, easy to change depts. and/or advance, solid company structure, competent management, great training, nice environment

ConsHigh turnover, not much or too much culture, ometimes corporate policy can be annoying, some depts. are union, which may be a pro for some. And you can't blame the company, but they do attract some snobby customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementTransferring employees to different stores when they advance to management is not always the best solution.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Bakery Clerk

Bakery Clerk (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at King Soopers part-time for more than a year

ProsThis is a great job! You will get to learn all aspects of the bakery such as packaging, icing donuts (yum), and most of all sampling the product (best part!).

ConsSome of the cons are that the pay might be lower than usual, but I myself am okay with the pay. Other cons are the shift times. IF you don't like late shifts like 12:30-9 or really early shifts like 4-12:30am then it is not for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is great.

very fun

Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee)
Longmont, CO

I have been working at King Soopers part-time for less than a year

Prosthe hours are flexible and they will work around my college schedule. I have the option of moving departments if I want and there is an opening. you get a discount on all Kroger brands. its like having a family everybody looks out for everyone. you get tons of training for your job so you can be comfortable doing your job.

Conscarts suck be ready to spend an hour chasing carts and still not get anywhere, the customers can be tough at times. and sometimes head clerks just stand around talk and direct like they should.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
