I have been working at Kroger part-time for less than a year

Pros

Nice co-workers. If you finish your job (night shift) you can go home anytime you please. You can talk or listen to your MP3 player as long as you finish your work in time.

Cons

The pay is poor if you're not a manager. Don't expect to hear any compliments about your work. Complaining is the main problem I have with this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to hire people when they are needed. Be nicer to your employees. Learn how to work a schedule.

    I worked at Kroger part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My 75 dollar weekly pay checks were better than nothing.. not much though

    Cons

    -Union
    -Terrible hours
    -Incompetent management
    -Union
    -No benefits
    -Lazy co-workers
    -Union

    The worst part about working at Krogers is being required to join the union (I wish Michigan was a right to work state). As with most union jobs, the harder you work the more they expect out of you, yet if you're a lazy employee they expect little from you and won't fire you. They gave me 6 hour shifts so that they wouldn't have to give me any benefits. I was making bare minimum wage 7.40 an hour plus union dues, so I actually made below minimum wage, even though I had previous experience working in my field. None of the managers had any idea what they were doing. They had no idea how to schedule shifts. Some weeks I would work a total of 6 hours, other weeks i'd work 30 hours. They show no appreciation towards their (hard working) employees. I will NEVER work for a unionized company again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to do your job. Start showing your employees some appreciation.

    I worked at Kroger part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Always in need of baggers
    * Senior citizen Wednesdays discounts
    * Paper or plastic options
    * Allow tipping, Publix does not
    * Newly renovated or built store in some ares

    Cons

    * Always in need of baggers
    * Senior citizen Wednesdays discounts slow down the lanes and don't tip as well as other age groups, though some are very generous
    * Minimum wage but some days are great with tips

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to explore upward-moving options such as becoming a cashier or dairy stock-person,etc.
