    Former Employee - Cashier/Bagger in Elizabethtown, KY

    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great co-wokers, union benefits, raise every 6 months, job is protected by the union, so it's fairly difficult to get fired.

    Cons

    Poor management, crazy work hours, working holidays, union conflicts between managers and employees. There's a lot of favoritism toward certain employees, especially the ones who were relatives or friends of the managers. Due to the union it's almost impossible to get fired, so if they no longer wanted you, they will just cut your hours down to one 4 hour day a week until you just quit. Another downfall to the union was that a lot of employees were extremely lazy as a result because they knew they wouldn't lose their job for doing absolutely nothing, so that would mean the good workers would have to work twice as hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the favoritism and start rewarding the employees who really deserve it.

    Pros

    the company as a whole is a great place to work. It seems with the new interview process a lot more good associates are found with outstanding personalities and the drive to actually go the extra mile for the customers.

    Cons

    I have noticed double standards on night shift. When there are rules in place, certain individuals feel they are above them and they will do just the opposite.
