Pros

The management is very nice, and will work with your schedule. You aren't forced to cater to unruly or rude customers.

Cons

Some co-workers needed to be fired but were allowed to continue their employment. Very fast paced work, very high stress. Needs more staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employee face-to-face reviews. Don't sacrifice employee stress levels for monetary gains.

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

    Pros

    Most of my coworkers were easy to work with. Managers were willing to accommodate school schedules, which was very important in a college town. Having the employee discount was also a plus.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't that great for the amount of work I often had to do during a shift, not including often being pulled out of the department to run the register then having to pick up the slack later. Some managers had a very high-and-mighty attitude. Others didn't realize the shortage issues in some departments and were annoyed when work wasn't being done to their specifications.

    Additionally, employees with higher seniority often took hours from the schedules of those with lower seniority. This, however, is more of the union's fault, I think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers at the store level need to be more aware of things like shortages in departments due to last-minute sick calls, etc., and realize that often, employees are doing the very best they can with what they have.

    A somewhat friendly place to work if you do not mind low pay and dishonest management.

    Pros

    - Fellow employees make this a friendly and amusing workplace.
    - Willing to work with employees to establish mutually beneficial schedules.

    Cons

    - Management will attempt many underhanded tactics to withhold pay under certain circumstances.
    - Management often treats employees with improper levels of respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are both people and customers and deserve the same consideration you yourself desire, and most importantly properly compensate them for agreed upon work.
