    I have been working at Kroger part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They are flexible with your schedule. Once you get insurance it is great medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    The wages are not competitive and are really low. Store managment changes frequently and news mangers always want one little thing to change.

    I worked at Kroger

    Pros

    Easy job, worked with friends, fairly quick hire

    Cons

    Sometimes had good management but sometimes had very bad management. Worked with some incompetent employees who dodged their responsibilities but nothing was really done about it. Didn't always get the amount of hours I wanted and the pay was pretty mediocre.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure managers are involved in whats going on in the front of the store especially at busy times and on busy days. More opportunities for employees to receive raises. Seek out employees excelling and work to keep them and promote them.

    I worked at Kroger full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    the management at this company is very transparent. They are always available and friendly. The benefits are phenomenal. However the union dues are high and charged immediately.

    Cons

    Hours worked stink. They require overtime which calls for no home life. The only way to make good money is working overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on your people.

    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Somewhat of a family oriented work environment.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities to grow within the company. I've worked at Kroger (on and off because of college) from 2004-2010 then 2014 and I was still getting paid minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more relatable to employees and provide opportunities of growth.
