    Great place to get started. Hard work pays off if you have the right attitude.

    Cons

    Very busy work most of the time.

    Empower employees as much as possible. You don't know what you have in someone until you give them a chance.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Kroger for three years. I developed many friendships and learned great customer service skills during my time there!

    Cons

    There was definitely a need for management improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that high school employees are still going to school so it is important to not schedule late hours on school nights.

    Pros

    Pay was decent, above average, and customers were really nice! Some of the people you'd work with were nice as well. Very well staffed.

    Cons

    Hours were pretty random, and some employee's (despite being nice) really enjoyed causing drama and being the center of attention.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees' better, and don't blame the wrong employee's for something they didn't do. Fix employee's who actually don't care about their job, rather than beat down the people who are working and care.

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunity for upward mobility, lots of divisions across the company and currently growing. People are nice.

    Cons

    Diversify your work experience by changing jobs every 2-3 years. Potential of getting pigeon holed if you stay in one department too long.

    Pros

    I had some great coworkers and some great customers! I have three little keys on my former name tag. You get a key for an outstanding letter of reference from a customer or a manager compliment, there is room for five. I got my 3 in the 3 months I was there. I worked produce, stocking, cleaning and seafood. So they are open to allowing movement.

    Cons

    Slow to promote those who deserve it. Micro manage at times at others allow kids in charge. The younger ones take more breaks than allowed while they're not being supervised.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention, pay more, give more hours to those willing to work the hardest. Don't give it to the ones who no longer care.

    Pros

    Easy training, paid while training.

    Cons

    If you have a family you won't see them. The store is open too late and all of the other workers were school-aged. I would be scheduled to close as late as 1:00 pm and have to be back as early as 7:00 am. No regard for home life. The training was easy, the job was simple, however, it was glorified babysitting as the other employees were all kids. The only other grown-up had established daytime schedules with no chance of breaking into that schedule for a new person. Wish I could have stayed, but never saw my kids. If the pay had been more I might have considered staying but not seeing my family wasn't worth the $100.00 paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to talented new workers and use them effectively. There are plenty of grunts to do grunt work. Use mature, talented people to manage them.
