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 have been working at Kroger part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work is relatively easy to perform, and you never have to take your job home with you. My coworkers are great, so I enjoy being at work because of them.

    Cons

    Union dues take a good chunk of your paycheck, and unless you have a strict availability, your hours may not be very consistent. the work is also mind-numbingly boring, at least self-checkout and below. It's all manual labor and memorization, no critical thinking.
