Pros

Overall, good work environment. Lots of opportunity for advancement. Kroger provides a lot of training to develop their associates.

Cons

As with most companies Kroger watches labor very closely. I think that too often Kroger does not allow for enough labor to provide World Class customer service that our customers deserve.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust that lower management will run shifts with the best financial interests in the company. Labor hours each day are cut to a bare minimum each day to take care of customers. Then there are the inevitable call outs experienced each day. I think that there should always be a slight "cushion" built into the labor budget, especially for holidays, to ensure there is always adequate coverage.

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

    Pros

    I was able to move up really quickly when a position opened up. They noticed my potential and excellent work attitude and I was given what is known as a Merit Raise... Kroger is unionized and the only way to get a raise is to work there so many hours, or get a Merit Raise. The Merit Raise gives you 2 pay scales above what you were getting paid but there's something about it only being allowed once.

    Cons

    Strict rule enforcement can seem mundane and pointless. There's always someone important walking around who notices something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more questions! Show more care to the little guy and you will see a great increase in work performance.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They promote from within better than any other company I've worked for.
    The range of employee ages makes for a unique environment...everybody fits!

    Cons

    Some employees have been there forever and are wonderful whereas some employees have been there forever and are a drag to the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pats on the back aren't necessary, but they are free and (almost) better than money.
