The management at Kroger is definitely not the best. They should all have more training before managing their own store.

Pros

The only pros would have to be the great associates you work with and the small 5% discount.

Cons

My cons would have to be the poor management and the how the supervisor aren't eager to give out breaks when needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should monitor the entire store more. Get a chance to know each employer that works with them and make them feel comfortable and happy to work there.

    Pros

    I work with a selection of great people who are motivated and hard workers. My grocery manager and assistant manager are great.

    Cons

    Due to constant micro-managing from the store management and new asinine policies from the corporate offices, it's almost impossible to get our job done. Hours are slashed like crazy and because everyone on night crew is hired part time (with the promise of getting full time hours) we have no right to complain as long as we stay about 20 hours a week. When employees complain to the store manager about lack of hours and how no human on earth could possibly have the store stocked and conditioned on 4-6 hour nights, they're told they're easily replaced and if they continue to complain they're transferred. In an attempt to live up to our store managers expectations, my assistant grocery manager had to come to work recently two days after being diagnosed with pneumonia and one day after suffering a near fatal reaction to his pneumonia meds. He was in no condition to be working, but new that, with how much the crews hours had been cut, his presence was required in order to get the store looking halfway decent. He was also told he could easily be replaced when he dared to question the store manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you continue to cut hours, you can't expect perfection in the store.

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