    Pros

    Customers and other employees are friendly, job is easy, part-timers still get paid vacation

    Cons

    Pay isnt very good, they'll "promote" you so you have more work and responsibilities but no pay raise, don't get enough hours some weeks

    Pros

    Great people to work with, everyone seems really friendly and it is overall a positive work environment.

    Cons

    Pay is minimum at best. No full time work unless you are a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer to pay your hard working employees more, that way you don't have such a high turn over rate. There should be an incentive to stay there, but there is not much growth opportunity at well developed stores.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big company with the possibility of many opportunities

    Cons

    Slow moving, too many people needed in decision making. Want to move fast and say they hold people accountable but in reality you're only held accountable when you fail. Good luck getting others on board for the really hard or unpopular decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move faster to make decisions, get serious about setting technology priorities - the organization can't do everything all at once!

    Pros

    Easy work fast paced decent pay

    Cons

    Hard work rude customers and no room for advancement it was a good place to work though for some time. i think that the best time would be spent learning more skills and looking elsewhere. if you want a good discount on erchandise that is kroger brand then it is good andd the quality is good i think overall very ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    They hire younger people and are really flexible with the hours.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth for a young people. Options are limited to Courtesy clerks and Cashier.

    Making room for growth for the younger employees would be motivational to the younger employees.

    Pros

    The people are great; you feel like you're part of a family. The pay is not bad for part-time.

    Cons

    Any job in customer service or dealing with the public can be challenging. Sometimes you get cranky customers but it's not the end of the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for making it a great experience for employees and making us feel like a part of something.
