    I have been working at Kroger

    Pros

    The internship paid well during the summer as a college student, and I got to travel a pretty good amount which I enjoyed.

    Cons

    Nothing was really bad. You got paid by month instead of by hour, and sometimes you did work more than 40 hours a week.

    I worked at Kroger full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great Senior Management, Excellent Benefits, Fair Compensation, a Company that truly appreciates its employees and offers great upward mobility.

    Cons

    There are really no drawbacks with this employer. The physical nature of the job and work-life balance may not be for everybody.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are available, even for part time employees. You only have to work 16 hours a week to qualify

    Cons

    You have to have an open availability to get scheduled because the schedule is computer generated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the same process

    I worked at Kroger full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people were great, paid weekly, simple work, union job, always something to do.

    Cons

    low pay, untrained management, promotions given to people with tenure not knowledge or skills. My boss was very confused when it came to the inventory systems and would mess up our inventory regularly to where I was the one fixing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training for Management, raise pay for general associates ( most of the employees didn't care because it was min. wage. jump it up to a little over and you will see a improvement.).
