Great First Job

Stock Clerk (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Kroger part-time for less than a year

ProsAs a lowly store clerk, being an employee at Kroger was a great first job. Pay is slightly above minimum wage. Hours are good. Best part: the work is not stressful at all. People are mostly in a good mood when shopping for groceries. Kroger is a great company that is getting bigger and better.

ConsWorking as a store clerk doesn't warrant much status. When you start here on the totem pole, it is difficult to rise up the corporate ladder. Best hope is to be promoted to store manager, and then maybe one day you can own a store or two.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't give drug tests to low level employees.

Great Place, Great managers, Great people

Cashier (Current Employee)
Columbus, OH

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

ProsWhere do I begin? I love all of my co workers, the managers are friendly, the hours are extremely flexible and the work isn't too demanding. It has a team atmosphere that I never felt at Costco.

ConsThe pay isnt great, but since as a cashier my job isnt too hard anyway, it wouldnt be realistic to expect more.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!
