    As a first job, it's a good experience. The people you work with become family.

    I worked at Kroger part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Good first job
    -Pay increases come after a set period of time, not just for those who earn it.

    Cons

    -Many of the department heads are overbearing.
    -It is very hard to get promoted or moved unless you know someone.
    -Everything, and I mean everything, goes by seniority, which is fine if you're at the top...
    -Many department heads want you to give up your life for the job, which isn't ideal.

    Paid enough to support my family, not given the time to spend with them

    I have been working at Kroger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay for the area. The company as a whole has a good idea of what they want to be.

    Cons

    No consistency with work schedules, on call all the time, management treated like second class, not for someone who values family time unless high up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rember when this was a company that valued community and the people who work for them
