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

Pros

Management is outstanding where I worked, and did everything they could to help me. This company is great for students because of the flexible hours and student benefits like tuition assistance.

Cons

Due to the high number of associates, it's extremely difficult to move from a part-time position to a full-time one. Upper management loves to micromanage each store and "fix what isn't broken", if you will. The pay could be better, but what else would expect from a supermarket?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop micromanaging and let the stores govern themselves as long as goals are being met.

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

    Pros

    Clean, friendly environment. The job expectations are pretty low, and if you're a high-school student or a middle-aged woman you'll fit right in.

    Cons

    You work for uneducated simpletons - they're nice, but simple. The pay is minimum wage, which is expected from this kind of job. Just because it's expected doesn't make it agreeable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people with drive, not people who seem like they'll just "be at Kroger's forever."
