Good company to work for in the beginning, now? Not so much

I worked at Kroger full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Ability to change departments or move up - as long as you're on the right side of the store management.

Cons

If, for whatever reason, they don't like you - you won't get any hours or be able to change jobs within the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be fair for everyone, not just the pets.

    Okay, if you can start young and stay forever, not great for older workers, but it is a job.

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

    Pros

    Clean, safe work environment. It's a job, in a tough economy I appreciate just having a job.

    Cons

    There are no merit raises. They talk about experience pay at the interview, but either you do not get it, or for those who do it is a nickel. You will work second shift until people retire, quit or get fired. Those above you in seniority believe themselves to be your bosses, while it's not true it is annoying.

    It was an entry-level position that made a low but steady income.

    Mentally draining at times
    I was forced to join the union
    Demanding physical labor
