    Pros

    Kroger is a great company to work for and it's only continuing to grow despite the economic issues the US has faced over the past 10 years. Everyone needs to buy food so the grocery industry is pretty stable. Kroger strives to maintain a good reputation for customer service and quality products, earning customer loyalty to generate more profits. While the starting pay isn't always great for hourly employees, benefits are affordable and perks include employee discounts with cell phone providers, 10% discount on Kroger-owned brands (Private Selection, Simple Truth, etc.), and discounts for amusement parks and zoos on certain days.

    Cons

    At the store level, it can be hard to move up in some departments. If you're willing to switch to a different department or even transfer to another store, chances for advancement improve. Hourly wages generally depend on whatever the union has already negotiated for you, so unless you have related work experience at the time you're hired, it can take a while to make much more than minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on leadership training and coaching for department heads.

    Pros

    I really enjoy the friendly faces of the diverse shoppers that come everyday, getting paid weekly is a plus and there is a reward program that recognizes my hard work.

    Cons

    At times I sense that there is a lot of special treatment going on among the Supervisors there and I would like to be allowed to transfer to a a non-union store but that is against policy which i find ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come out of your offices sometimes and engage with your employees make them feel like they are on the same time as you are.
