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

    Pros

    Some of the best friends and people I have met, work with me. This company is not only helpful with working around your schedule, but if they know you are dependable and you work hard - they will give you more hours. Having a new store manager has given our store a new perspective. I couldn't be more thankful to have a place to work that allows me to work with my friends and move up in departments.

    Cons

    Sometimes my specific department is not given enough hours during the week and my hours could range anywhere from 12-36. Also, some people do not realize that just because they have been working for Kroger for a long time, doesn't mean that they don't have to work as hard as they did when they started there. If you cannot do the job, find somewhere else to work that can accommodate your age group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not move co-managers around so frequently. Customer's get angry when they see a different manager that they haven't seen when they have been shopping for years.

    Pros

    Discounts on food. Nice people. All around the store there are so many people to talk to. I love putting out the free samples.

    Not much pay. I wish I could get more money so that I could buy a car. I really want a car.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's good.

    Benifits. Kroger offers a pension, flexible schedule, (eventually) 4 weeks vacation, and good insurance.

    Cons

    Retail. If you've worked the field, you get it :) .

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I like working at Kroger because the work-life balance is amazing and there is room for growth. My co-workers are amazing and very helpful. Our pharmacists are great to work for.

    Cons

    The only downside is the pay. We as technician do multiple jobs and have to be able to multitask at all times. We are yelled at by customers who are impatient or who are try to fill too early. We just want to be payed for the multiple jobs we preform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your technicians better, we do more than you think!!

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

    Pros

    The company does a lot to try and reach out to both employees and customers.

    Cons

    The good that the company dictates is often negated by lack luster management and co-workers. This is largely due to the less than satisfying pay.
