All-in-all, an okay place to work.

Produce Clerk (Former Employee)
Athens, OH

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

ProsMost 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementManagers 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
